Naturally endowed with warm, sheltered waters and sweet talking breeze, the Whitsundays are a magical mecca for boating and sailing endeavours. For experts and beginners alike, there is no better way to explore the islands to a drop a line and catch your dinner, or to simply dangle your feet, take a dip and soak in the phenomenal view.

Just a stroll from the front door of Mirage Whitsundays lies Abel Point Marina. Here, marina berths are available for purchase for those who wish to make the most of this idyllic boating location.

A little further along the waterfront you will see new boutique marina Port of Airlie, home to Cruise Whitsundays new maritime terminal, connecting the islands and the reef to the mainland.

Port of Airlie offers mariners the opportunity to own their own Whitsunday berth on a 90+ year sub-lease. Port of Airlie is the gateway to the islands, Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven Beach.  Port of Airlie is also home to the newest retail and dining precinct.

Meander peacefully around the sparkling turquoise waters on a yacht or take the high speed option and explore the islands on a jet ski. Whatever your inclination, the region is even more spectacular viewed from the water.
