   Our classic sunset sail takes you out across Pioneer Bay where we catch the breeze to set sail. You are welcomed on board with a complimentary glass of bubbles. Slip into the sunset in style as we head out across the bay. Nibbles include bread/cheeses/dips and seasonal fruit. What a great way to enjoy the evening. 

Add on one of our four-course dinner packages at either nearby Coral Sea Resort or Barcelona Cafe for that special occasion.
    
    

Sail through Hook Passage to Whitsunday Island. Morning tea on board. Take in world famous Whitehaven Beach from the Hill Inlet lookout before walking down to the white sand. Spend time on the beach before we head to Dumbbell Island. Lunch on board. Snorkel in the beautiful reef around the island before heading home again feasting on a fruit and cheese platter.  Hoist a sail or chill on deck.     
Whether you want to tie the knot onboard; host a Hens' or Bucks' party;   celebrate that special occasion or impress your clients; Providence V has a number of different private charter options.
Choose your own music and plug your music into our sound system on board.  


Or perhaps relax with one of our Half Day Charters (5 hours), giving you swim and a snorkel and lunch. 

Set sail across Whitehaven Passage to Blue Pearl Bay on Hayman Island. See the magical underwater world and commune with the Maori Wrasse. Spot Nemo. Then head to Langford Reef where we have lunch on the beach under our umbrellas. Snorkel off the beach where you have a good chance of spotting turtles who swim in the shallows. Homeward bound with a fruit platter. ​

Fun Facts About Providence

   
Providence V is an 62 ft American bluenose, a replica and half the size of a Grand Banks fishing boat which plied the waters off Maine in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1992 she starred in a Hollywood movie called "Survive the Savage Seas" after being spotted overhead by a Hollywood scout in a chopper.

Meet the Owners

 Lindsay and Grant bought Providence V in 2005 having discovered her in the Whitsundays while they were on their honeymoon in 2003. 

Providence V was based on Magnetic Island between 2006-15 when Lindsay and Grant brought her back to the Whitsundays. Their combined family of five kids have grown up working on Providence V.
