Derwent Hunter Day Sail

Tall Ship Day Sailing on board the Australian legend Derwent Hunter. Whitsunday Islands, Great Barrier Reef. Help sail, snorkel fringing reefs,explore coral atolls of Langford Reef and Bali Hai. Multi award winning for adventure and eco tourism. Departs Airlie Beach.

Designed and built in Tasmania in 1946 by revered shipwright, Walter Wilson, The Hunter is a prime example of excellence in design. Blue Gum, Tassie Oak, Celery Top and Huon Pine were cut and dragged by bullock train to the slipway at Port Cygnet where they were worked by hand by a team of just four shipwrights over a period of 18 months. The result was one of the finest sailing trade vessels ever to be launched in Australia, her life story a fascinating tale of intrigue and adventure. When she arrived in the Whitsundays in 1993, the Derwent Hunter was the largest traditional timber sailing vessel in the Whitsundays and is still arguably, the 'Queen of the Fleet'.
