Lady Enid Sailing
Lady Enid recreates that classic age of yachting enjoyed in the 1960’s when sailing was more about elegance and chic than corporate sponsorship and carbon fibre.
The experience of sailing on this beautiful and rare classic Australian yacht gives as much to the day as the the destination. Become involved as much or as little as you like, help set sails, take a turn on the helm or lean back and relax with your favourite book, listen to music or simply daydream and be beguiled at the uninterrupted beauty of the Whitsunday Islands.
Air Whitsunday Seaplanes - Whitsundays
ABOUT AIR WHITSUNDAY
Air Whitsunday has evolved since its conception back in 1973 - with the energy and enthusiasm generated by Kevin and Sue Bowe – to provide an unsurpassed seaplane service to the region.
We have built upon our very beginning`s – still with the same intention - of providing you the opportunity to glimpse the enormity of the Great Barrier Reef; stretching over a curved horizon; to the glistening white silica sands of the famous Whitehaven Beach - all from the ultimate perspective of seaplane comfort.
Over the history of our 37 years trading we have been a growing, changing entity with a focus that has remained steadfast in providing specifically tailored scenic flights and Reef experience tours that take full advantage of this stunning area.
The discovery of “Heart Reef” in 1975 (now a Whitsunday feature of the international tourism market) by one of Air Whitsunday`s very own pilots has provided a focal point to our popular scenic flights and showcases the diversity of the Great Barrier Reef. Aptly the Heart Reef is a favourite for brochure shots and other colour promotional material for the Whitsundays.
What makes your seaplane experience with us so unique is the ability to provide – YOU – our guest, with some of the most breathtaking and memorable visuals provided by ‘Mother Nature’ from a bird`s eye perspective.
