Mandrake is a 50 foot ocean racing pocket maxi yacht offering budget 2 day 2 night adrenaline sailing trips to the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland Australia.
Taking smaller groups of just 15 passengers and 2 crew you will find yourself riding the Mandrake through some of the most picturesque scenery in the world. The fabulous Whitsundays.
Passengers are welcome to participate in the sailing of Mandrake or if you prefer you can just chill out and take in the thrill of the ride as the Whitsunday Islands slide past you and the tropical water splash at your feet as you "ride the rails".
Mandrake will speed you to locations such as Whitehaven Beach, Nara Inlet, Luncheon Bay, Blue Pearl Bay, Langford Reef, Langford Spit, Langford Island, Hayman Island, Hook Island, the Hook Passage, Whitsunday Island. It all depends on the weather and the tides while you are on the trip.
