Travel Risk/Insurance:

It should be noted that adventure travel involves risk. Whilst we make every effort to safeguard clients, we cannot be responsible for personal injury or loss due to the actions of our clients which are beyond our control. We highly recommend that all clients have travel insurance covering illness, injury, loss or damage to personal belongings and not being able to travel on the confirmed date of departure.

All departures and itineraries are subject to weather. Tours may be changed or cancelled for any reason at the discretion of the Service Operator. If the Service Operator has to cancel the trip or activity (prior to departure) and we cannot offer a suitable alternative, then a refund will be given minus a 20% administration fee and any associated card fees. We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance, especially during the wet season.

In the unlikely event of your trip being cancelled or stood down, all guest communication is required to go through our Online Store via telephone or email. While there is a Sailing Whitsundays retail outlet located Airlie Beach, please be aware that they operate as a separate entity and are unable to access reservations made by the Mr Travel online department.

Sharyn Stubbs, 30 Oct 23
We visited Whitehaven Beach with a small group, some people with disabilities. The staff were more than happy to help and did all they could to make the experience enjoyable for all.
LISA BOEDER , 14 Aug 23
We wanted to go whale watching, we were on GKI a friend told us about Airley beach whale watching when we asked the girl that booked our tour, is it windy tomorrow, she said only a little bit of wind, we were very disappointed. Couldn’t get back to shore quick enough. The staff were great.
Brad Mc Arthur, 17 May 23
A relative had recently completed a bare boat sailing experience around the Whitsundays and when he heard we were going to Airlie Beach, he said we must go to the islands. So we took a tour to Whitehaven Beach. Despite unsettled weather, we had an exhilerating trip to Whitehaven Beach.
Darryl Vancise, 20 Feb 23
Interesting cruise out with harbour stops, fantastic crew and such a wonderful beach. Well done in providing a memorable experience.
