We all know most overnight boat tours visit Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout, but with so many options, it can be difficult to choose how you get there. The boat and the trip make all the difference, and we’ve got 10 reasons why we think Powerplay is a perfect choice!

5. Aft Blue Lights

Come again? Aft blue lights are a rare feature on Whitsunday charters, but make for an amazing spectacle at night, as the blue lights shining into the water attract lots of nocturnal marine life, right off the back of the boat for your viewing pleasure! See squid and cuttlefish, dolphins and even the odd baby shark (do, do do do)!

6. Smaller Group

If crowded and noisy boats aren’t your thing, you will be delighted to know Powerplay takes a maximum of 18 passengers, making this a more intimate tour for a better overall experience in the Whitsundays. You can choose to relax or be social, with plenty of space on the boat to spread out. If you're planning a trip with a group of friends or family, you may even want to check out some private charter options!

7. Air Conditioning! 

Can we get an “Amen!” In the summer months, the heat can get overwhelming, and while that’s fine during the day, when you turn in for the night you want to relax in your cabin in comfort. Air conditioning is not available on every boat in the Whitsundays, so if you’re visiting during the warmer times of the year, air conditioning is a lifesaver!
