Whitsunday Island Hopping
With 74 magical islands to explore, sometimes there is simply not enough time to see and experience them all while on your visit to the region. If this is the case, then don't despair as we have put together a great list of exciting tours options. All of these trips offer the full Whitsunday experience and have plenty of opportunities to see the islands.
The best way to hop around the Whitsunday islands:
Overnight boat trip
Certainly the most popular type of trip on offer in the Whitsundays is to jump onboard an overnight sailing tour for a few days and nights! This exciting style of trip allows passengers to experience real sailing, snorkelling along the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, scuba dive (depending on the boat trip), the chance to stop at Whitehaven Beach and of course see and experience the Whitsunday Islands!
Island Hopper Pass
Why not visit the islands at your own leisure with the freedom of an Island Hopper Pass. With the island ferries travelling around the Whitsundays throughout the day, the hopper pass allows you to come and go around the islands as you please. See Hamilton Island, Daydream Island and Long Island all in one day, on your own time frame! But don't miss this last ferry of the day!
3 Island Cruise
As the name suggests, this trip visits 3 different destinations in one day, so it is a great option for those short on time but don't want to miss out on the experience. Specifically, the Reefstar 3 Island Cruise visits Daydream Island Resort and Spa, Whitehaven Beach and Bali Hai where you can choose to snorkel or enjoy the comfort of the glass bottom boat.
Stay overnight on an island
For those who want to experience true tranquility, why not stay at one of the most famous island resorts of them all - Hamilton Island. Not only does this resort have a number of different accommodation options on offer, but there is also a huge variety of activities to experience including watersports, shooting range, golf course, beauty spa, bowling alley and wildlife park.
With 3 exciting tours to choose from, jetskis are a great way to see and experience the magic of the Whitsundays, from a completely different angle! Whitsunday Jetski Tours take lucky travellers on either the Airlie Adventure, Two Islands Safari (South Molle and Daydream Island) or Daydream Extreme!
Bareboat at your leisure
Why not go on a tour of your own making around the Whitsunday Islands, with you as the skipper! Bareboating is a great option for couples and groups of family and friends who want to travel on their own personal vessel with their own itinerary. Bareboating is a skipper-yourself option, rather than joining a shared passenger boat tour which includes a skipper and crew.
