If required, Solway Lass can act as a spectator vessel, and we have small vessels to act as chase boats.  We arrange all the necessary permits to conduct events and setup courses in the Great Barrier Reef Marine / National Park. 

We can provide easy guided walks on the islands to get a great photo or for the more adventurous, trek to Whitsunday Peak, where your team will feel on top of the world with 360 degree views of the Islands!

Whether a Professional Conference Organiser, or a business owner, we can tailor a Meetings and Incentive or Team Building experience for your team!
