Where Do Whitsunday Tours Depart From
All Whitsunday trips depart from the marinas in Airlie Beach. Depending on whether you arrive in the Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast), Hamilton Island or Mackay Airport, you will need to travel to Airlie Beach to catch your tour.
Most day and overnight boat trips depart from Abell Point Marina, which is situated in walking distance from the main street of Airlie Beach so we recommend you make your way to there, and only 1 or 2 trips departs from Port of Airlie marina (where the ferry terminal is located).
You will also find all boat check-in offices, accommodation and restaurants are also located in Airlie Beach.
To make things easier, we recommend catching a flight into the Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport which is a short drive to Airlie Beach, or alternatively, Hamilton Island Airport from which you will need to catch a ferry to the mainland.
Please note: Boat trips cannot pick up/ drop off passengers at Hamilton Island.
