Solway Lass is a magnificent, century-old, yo-ho-ho-style Tall Ship powered by 5500 square feet of white sails. What more exciting way to explore the 74-island dreamland of the Whitsundays? The captain makes a perfect Hornblower and the crew interchange so service is always tip-top.....

.... You can choose to get involved and help haul the yard or sit back and be entertained by the pirate antics, hear the amazing history of ‘The Lass’, snorkel and dive the coral reefs and laze in the bow net. Routes vary depending on the weather and the captain’s whim. You will swim the best snorkelling spots, visit windless and unspoilt white-sand beaches, spot sea eagles, find dolphins or turtles and – in season – watch humpback whales. The boat can take up to 70 on board, but the cabin refit has been tailored for 32 guests in 11 oak-and-cedar-lined cabins. There are good-sized double and single beds, brass lamps to light your way and bathrooms are spic and span. Meals are freshly prepared and plentiful: a Continental breakfast, cold-meat buffet or BBQ with salads and pastas for lunch, while dinners are hot and vary with the season. There’s a rope swing for those that are feeling courageous, a cat-o-nine-tails for those found misbehaving and a fully-licensed bar. Special diets catered for.
