I joined the Solway Lass Tall Ship to sail the Whit Sundays and it was a pleasant experience. I would not class it as an 'adventure' more so a 'relaxing' trip. We didn't have the winds so we only sailed twice for about 2 hours, beyond anyone's control of course and otherwise the weather was great sunshine everyday. My trip... More

Had a blast on Solway ! The boat is very pretty, and the cabins are lovely as well, small but comfy. With the tour, you go to Whiteheaven the first morning and then you snorkel around the whitsundays for the rest of the trip. They bring you to a lot of different spot, where you can see turtles, clown fish...... More

Three days sailing, snorkelling and exploring on the tall ship - Solway Lass - was an unforgettable experience from the start of the booking process to coming ashore at the end. We shared the ship with 28 other passengers and a superb crew of 5 led by Captain Peter Griffin and assisted by Dan, Beth, Holly and Joel. The check... More

How amazing this trip was! I sailed on Solway Lass last week with my Mum and I can say that it will stay in my mind for a while. The crew was dedicated, nice... just perfect (Stewie, Stevie, Joly, Pete & Eileen), the other participants were a perfect fit and we had fun chatting, drinking, snorkeling, trekking with each one...

This was my first experience as a solo traveler and I was a little hesitant. No need! The crew were extremely welcoming and proved to be experts in their roles throughout the trip. The 4 bed cabin is small but the bed is comfortable enough and you spend very little time in the cabin other than to sleep. I shared... More

This trip has great potential of being one of the best travel activities you'll experience: you get to sail with an over 100 years old ship, see the Whitsunday islands, visit Whitehaven beach, snorkel, dive (one around 30 minutes dive as an option, costs extra) and jump from the boat with a Tarzan swing. Solway Lass is also one of... More

We spent 3 days on a cruise around the Whitsundays island. We had a great time onboard Solway Lass, the crew was young and friendly, we met a lot of new nice people from different countries and we had a lot of meals during the day!! The cruise was very relaxing but also interesting and funny! Really recommended!
