Owner description: Available April to October each year; Pilgrim Sailing offers small personalised lunchtime and sunset sailing cruises around Magnetic Island on beautiful 17 m (58 ft) sailing boat. There are cruises available to suit all ages and interests. Relax with a glass of wine or a beer in hand and watch the sun go down over Magnetic Island on a Sunset Cruise. Or come for a sail to a protected bay on Magnetic Island for a BBQ lunch and a swim (great for kids). Join the crew at Magnetic Island race week (no experience necessary). Or tailor your day on the water with a private charter. Pilgrim is one of a kind. She is a custom-built yacht with large spacious decks and two deep cockpits. With only a few guests on board, you will receive the personal attention from the crew - Skipper Paul and Clare. They will share their passion for sailing and their welcoming hospitality on every trip on board Pilgrim.
Useful Information: Activities for older children, Bathroom facilities

The sunset cruise was absolutely amazing. Firstly Claire and Paul are courteous hosts who provide relevant and extra information on all aspects of the sail. The safety talk was extremely well done. Secondly the service and kindness during the cruise is wonderful. The wine is both delicious and organic, from a small business in the Hunter Valley, ditto the cheese but from the Atherton Tablelands. This is a lovely way to get close to the ocean and away from the noise. This two person business is both professional and passionate - an unbeatable combination. Next goal:the Sydney to Hobart start on Pilgrim. Boxing Day magic!

In terms of our experience aboard Pilgrim, we just wanted to thank you
both for a day that we will never forget. Everything was just perfect!!! From
the time you greeted us aboard to the time we departed your hospitality and
willingness to make our day special was very much appreciated. The
stillness of the weather, the food, wine and music were just as we had
ordered.
We will be back, if not at Magnetic Island then in Sydney for sure.
Again, thank you for a wonderful experience.

Thank grant726

We were extremely fortunate to choose Pilgrim for our lunchtime sail around Maggie with our friends on our recent visit. After reading the reviews, I knew we would have a great day but I can honestly say our expectations were well and truly exceeded. A beautiful boat, incredibly hospitable hosts and an idyllic location were the perfect ingredients.
Like others here, we can not recommend the experience highly enough. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Paul and Claire for contributing to our memorable family holiday.
