Solway Lass Tall Ship Sailing

This is a fully crewed 4 day / 3 night live-aboard Tall Ship adventure in the Whitsunday Islands. This cruise is for guests who want a leisurely paced, fun tour of the Whitsundays. Solway Lass is a 2 mast tall ship with 11 sails, which was built in Holland in 1902. She is presented in beautiful condition and features a licenced bar and lounge area, large decks to sunbathe, a tarzan rope swing to use while at anchor, a bow net to lay in and watch the water lap the bow below. There`s also a shaded mid deck with tables and chairs for dining. There are 2 or 3 snorkelling options on fringing island coral reefs, visits to stunning beaches, and guided island walks to spectacular lookouts. Guests are welcome to get involved and lend a hand to set the massive sails. You`ll anchor each night in smooth water bays, so sleeping is comfy.
