Full description
Cruise to Whitehaven Beach, one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, on this 6-hour cruise. You will depart early in the morning on a high-speed vessel for a cruise through the Whitsunday Islands to be the first on the beach. Alternatively, you can choose to depart later in the day to enjoy a sunset cruise home. Morning tea will be served depending on the option selected. You will board your Whitehaven vessel for a scenic cruise to this magnificent beach. Your cruise vessel has expansive seating areas both inside and out, and your friendly skipper will provide an informative commentary on the history and natural wonders of the area. You will be free to sit back, breathe in the sea air, sip a wine or beer, and marvel at the 74 Island Wonders of the Whitsundays, starting with views of Passage Peak and the imposing Pentecost Island. The waters of Solway Passage will lead you to the world-famous Whitehaven Beach, a definite "must see" in the Whitsundays. You can prepare to be dazzled by the breathtaking beauty and vivid white sand of Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island. This uninhabited island is one of Australia's true gems. Once there, you can choose to wander along the beach to your own secluded stretch, laze on the sand, or cool off in the azure waters. You'll spend 1.5 to 2 hours at the southern end of Whitehaven Beach, before making the beautiful journey back to Airlie Beach.

Great way to experience Whitehaven beach, in half a day. Well organized and on the beach itself, it was great to have access to a SUP, kids toys and a bar. Boat trip might seem a bit long but it is worth it, plus you see things along the way.

Great for a quick bit ride out to Whitehaven beach for the day. You’re given morning tea (fruit and a mini muffin). So by the time you return you’re starving. It would be great if sandwiches were sold on the boat for the way home (lunch). Our son (4yrs) loved the experience. He made the 700metre walk to the lookout at Whitehaven beach. They supplied wet suits and beach toys for the kids. The team on the boat were extremely friendly and helpful. They came around with coffee and tea for free on the way there. You can choose to depart from Airlie which was handy for us (no added cost). I would highly recommend everyone try this experience once in their lives.

The fact that the boat stops on the southern side of the Whitehaven beach makes it impossible to see the hill inlet lookout which was the mais reason we wanted to go the the Whitehaven beach. Although the cruise lasts for 6 hours, we spent 2 hours on the beach itself and the rest picking up and dropping off people all over the other islands around.
