Cast members are able to select a charity that they are passionate about, which means there is no limit to the network of support and fundraising efforts.

With over 40+ episodes already screened, the entire business model is 100% dedicated to helping as many Australian charities as possible.
Fundraising covers all the filming expenses, and the total net revenue always goes directly to the charities! With the support of local businesses such as Sailing Whitsundays, costs to film the series remain low, thus maximising the return to charitable organisations.

This is a relaxing and beautiful way to sightsee around the waters of Airlie Beach!
There is no better way to experience the magic of the Whitsundays than with a scenic flight!

Another option is the Sunset and Boardwalk Segway Tour, which allows you to cruise around downtown Airlie Beach in an intimate group setting. Watch the sun dip below the horizon, do some sightseeing, and learn about the area from your local guide!
The Whitsundays are not only home to numerous picturesque, remote islands, they are also part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park! Head to the Outer Reef for an amazing day of snorkelling with Explore. Visit multiple fascinating reef sites so you can frolic amongst the colourful marine life including corals, fish, and maybe even sea turtles, dolphins, reef sharks, or rays. You'll gain a new appreciation for the world's largest coral reef system and the beauty of the underwater world!
Another unique way to experience the Whitsundays is with a thrilling day of hiking and biking! South Molle Island is one of the most gorgeous Whitsunday Islands near Airlie Beach, and various hiking trails crisscross the mountainous terrain. The island is also home to the Whitsundays only mountain biking trail! So strap on your helmet, lather on some sunscreen, and get ready to traverse South Molle Island by mountain bike, with plenty of stops for photos of course!
No trip to Tropical North Queensland is complete without seeing a mighty saltwater crocodile! These ancient creatures and the largest reptiles on Earth, and they thrive in the inland murky rivers surrounding the Whitsundays. Cruise the Proserpine River with Whitsunday Crocodile Safari so you can see these fascinating beasts with your own eyes!

Giving Back While Visiting The Whitsundays
As a long-time tourism operator in the area, Sailing Whitsundays is always happy to promote philanthropy, sustainable tourism, and conservation. If you're travelling to the Whitsundays and you're interested in having a positive impact on the local environment and community, there are many ways to do so!
How Can I Help The Environment While Visiting The Whitsundays?
In addition to watching and supporting philanthropic organisations like Charity TV Global and Adventure All Stars, there are lots of eco-friendly efforts taking place in the Whitsundays. We already mentioned Ocean Rafting and Whitsunday Crocodile Safari, but other tours like Kiana and Red Cat Adventures are also deeply involved in marine biology research and conservation.
While the main focus of these tours is experiencing the natural wonders of Tropical North Queensland, they also take time to participate in conservation efforts outside their regular tour operations. When joining any tour in the Whitsundays, make sure you speak with your guides to learn more about the region and ways you can get involved!
Other initiatives are in place as well, including the Eyes On The Reef app to report whale sightings and the Eco-Barge ocean clean-up and turtle rescue programs. If you're a luxury traveller, you can support eco-friendly businesses like Elysian Retreat, which is 100% solar-powered. So there are many ways to have a positive impact on the Whitsundays during your stay!
