a sailor's paradise

The Fraser Coast rivals the best as a sailing destination with sub-tropical weather year round, untouched locations and an array of marine life.


The team at Fraser Island Boat Charters would like to acknowledge the land and oceans which we are so fortunate to operate in, Butchulla country. We also extend our respects to Butchulla elders: past, present and emerging.

what our guests had to say

One week on the waters of The Sandy Straits on their flagship Coralita by far exceeded our most optimistic expectations.

A 7 day bareboat voyage with seven friends on a luxury yacht with numerous visits by passing whales and turtles was amazing.

Scott and his team provided valuable support and advice ensuring a great holiday. Would definitely consider doing it all again.

Leonard - Tripadvisor

We chartered Indigo for 4 nights exploring the West side of K'gari (Fraser Island) and couldn't be happier with the location, boat, service and experiences. Highly recommend this to anyone.

Scott the owner was always really helpful and professional. We skippered the boat ourselves and it was simple anchoring and protected from the wind the whole time.

Highly recommend!!

Johnny - Tripadvisor

I am reluctant to leave a review due to the fact this is one of the best kept secrets in Qld!

We have taken Indigo out on 2 separate trips and both times I would describe it as the trip of a lifetime.

With whales circling the boat at sunrise and the crystal clear waters around the northern end of K'gari this was as close to a 5 star waterfront floating holiday as you could get. Highly recommended.
