Most Oz Adventure Sailing yachts are BYO (Bring your own) alcohol, soft drinks, spring water, juice and chocolates. In some cases our vessels have a licenced bar on board which sell alcoholic and soft drinks at very reasonable prices and it is a legal requirement that alcohol is not brought on board by guests. At publishing these vessels are Pacific Sunrise, Derwent Hunter and Kiana.

No, fresh linen is provided on all Oz Adventure Sailing cruises and some vessels even provide bathroom towels. Check in will let you know if your vessel does. Blankets are available in the cooler months.
* Can I have my own cabin?
Yes you can have your own cabin, just look for one of our vessels with this option, some with their own private facilities.
* Are there jellyfish in the water?
Stinger Season in the Whitsundays runs every year from October through to May. During this period, jellyfish can be found in the waters around the mainland, islands and have occasionally been found out on the reef. It is worth taking some simple precautions so that you can enjoy your holiday with peace of mind.
All our vessels have stinger suits to hire for around $10-$15 each for the duration of the trip. These suits are compulsory and must be worn all year round. Not only are they for safety but they keep you warm in the water, act as sun protection and are a great aid for buoyancy while snorkelling.
