This a 4 day and 3 night trip where we will sail around the Whitsunday Islands on ex racing maxi yacht ‘The Broomstick’, exploring the tropical waters, fun diving the reefs, line diving and training.
Australia’s iconic Whitsunday Islands are nestled in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and is home to 74 idyllic islands. The waters here are home to some of the world’s most diverse and thriving marine life full of sheltered coral reefs, huge coral structures, overhangs, swim throughs and thousands of marine creatures.
The clear protected, vibrant waters of this region lend itself to some of the best sailing in the southern hemisphere! During the trip we will experience real adventure sailing and can match race with other boats in the area. You’ll have the opportunity to help out with the sailing and racing or you can sit back and enjoy the ride!
We will hold theory and specialised workshops for those who are interested and will get in the water to line dive every day. There is access to 40m depth and visibility is usually around 15m. There will also be plenty of time to fun dive and explore the waters at your own pace as we will cater the trip to what the group would like to do each day.

- 4 days and 3 nights of dorm style accommodation on the live aboard maxi yacht ‘The Broomstick’
- All meals and snacks freshly made by the crew
- A skipper and two deckhands/hosts
- Freediving Theory Workshops
- Training Dives

I recently did my wave 2 course with Freediving Central as part of the Whitsundays Sailing & Freediving Liveaboard Trip. I simply cannot give enough praise to the crew from Freediving Central for this unbelievable experience.
All instructors, Dan, Evan, Shazzy, and Livi, are incredibly kind, welcoming, and brought out the best in everyone one of us on this trip. They are great instructors, love sharing their freediving knowledge and experience, care immensely about safety, but most of all are incredibly fun to be in the ocean with. You’d almost think I’m getting paid to write this (I’m not), but seriously, I had an amazing time with them. Simply the best freediving trip of my life. I can’t wait to go on the next dive adventure with them.

Just came back from freediving live aboard cruise in Whitsundays. I had such a great time, seeking for diving spots, diving in a warm waters, while doing wave 2 course. Special thanks to Dan for organising and great training sessions and Evan for being a good instructor and helping me to achieve my new PB. One of the best trips in my life!
