Overview

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.
