What you can expect

Join this Whitehaven Beach Big Island Day Tour for a scenic day cruise around the Whitsunday Islands including a visit to the famous Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout. This one of a kind day in the Whitsundays will take you to places no other Whitsunday Island tour goes to, cruising in air-conditioned comfort.

Circumnavigate Whitsunday Island on the Whitsundays Ngaro Sea Trail touring South Molle Island and Hook Island. For a better vantage point, you may prefer to head upstairs to the rooftop deck for unspoilt views. A complimentary gourmet lunch, morning tea and afternoon is served on board as well as a guided walking tour of Whitehaven Beach so you can sink your toes into the powder-white silica sands. At the conclusion of the day, complimentary bus transfers can return you to your hotel or town if you wish to kick on into the evening in Airlie Beach.

Excellent, great day at the reef, very well organised, staff friendly. Well worth it.

Excellent, great day at the reef, very well organised, staff friendly. Well worth it. My son was nervous but soon couldn’t believe how easy and fun it was, he relaxed and let fish swim with him. Food was plenty and good. Much to do a long day but definitely worth it.

Whitehaven beach and hill inlet lookout tour is a must do experience when you are visiting Whitsunday islands

One of the best options for Whitehaven beach and hill inlet lookout tour especially when you are with kids / elderly. Big ferry size to minimize motion sickness, comfort of Aircon, on board morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea enhances the tour experience. Friendly and Courteous staff.
