Your friendly, experienced and Eco-Certified Skipper will give interesting commentary on the history of the area, whilst guiding you through the natural beauty around you.
Starting your day with views of the soaring Passage Peak and imposing Pentecost Island, you will be in awe of the Whitsunday Islands and their beautiful coastlines, where secluded bays are gently lapped by warm turquoise waters. You will cruise via Daydream Island and Hamilton Island and through the Solway Passage leading you to the beautiful Whitehaven Beach.
As you disembark the boat, you will be happily greeted by the dazzling azure waters and sparkling white sands of Whitehaven Beach, stretching for miles along stunning Whitsunday Island. Here you will enjoy the southern end of Whitehaven, known for its 7 km long beach, perfect for swimming, walking to one of the new lookouts, or enjoying beach activities as you soak up the wonder of this natural gem.
You will then board a smaller vessel which will take you to the northern end of Whitehaven Beach, where your eco-tour guide will take you up to Hill Inlet Lookout so you can get that perfect photo, providing the history of the flora and fauna as well as the indigenous culture of the Ngaro people.
Once back on board, you will be whisked away to Chalkies Beach where you will be able to snorkel right off the sand and over its beautiful fringing coral in this protected cove. After your snorkel, enjoy a beach barbeque with a gourmet burger, some more time to soak up the sun, and plenty of beach sport activities.
On return to the boat, you will be served afternoon tea, as you once again sit back and enjoy the comfortable cruise back to the mainland. Treat yourself to a beer or a wine as you breathe in the fresh sea air, marvel at the spectacular views that surround you, and appreciate your amazing full-day experience on Australia’s favourite beach.
