Getaway Sailing on the Gold Coast

Picture yourself sailing the Gold Coast tranquil waters with a crimson twilight sky over our national parks or sailing silently with a majestic humpback whale watching their playful nature and then there is always South Stradbroke Island to explore. Let Getaway sailing on the Gold Coast show you part of your own backyard.

Hi, my name is Darryl Franklin. I am your Getaway Gold Coast Sailing skipper & host. My beautiful boat ‘Eau De Vie’ (Water of Life) an 11m long French built luxury sailing sloop with the capacity to carry 2 – 11 passengers, is ideal for couples, families, small groups of friends or work colleagues.
Based at Runaway Bay Marina, and popular with both locals and visitors to the Gold Coast, when you charter with Getaway Sailing, this is the boat you will have exclusively. Yes it’s all yours for the period of the charter. With Getaway Sailing you are in safe and friendly hands whether you are sailing on the calming waters of the Gold Coast Broadwater or enjoying gentle sea breezes on the Pacific Ocean.

Your sailing charters through Getaway Sailing may include 2 – 8 hours of sailing exploring the waterways and nearby South Stradbroke Island; a Day Spa and Sailing package; an extremely intimate private whale watching experience or a romantic sunset wedding proposal with unique ‘Will you marry me?” custom made spinnaker. Purchasing a Getaway Sailing gift voucher is a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or event such as an anniversary or birthday.
