Guests on board Eureka II will get to enjoy a stop at the ever-so stunning Whitehaven Beach. Famous for its pure silica sands and seemingly endless shoreline, Whitehaven Beach has been voted one of the best beaches in Australia. It is located on the largest island of the 74 Whitsunday Islands, providing a perfect beach escape.
Hill Inlet Lookout
A short bushwalk inland will lead you to the equally famous Hill Inlet Lookout, which will give you unparalleled views of the beach below and the swirling sands of Hill Inlet. The swirling sands below are created through the ever-changing tides that leave behind a kaleidoscope of blue and white. Capture this moment in a photo and in memory while onboard Eureka II.
The crew on board Eureka II will take you to all the hot spots in the area and provide you with all the necessary gear and tuition if you need it. Below the waterline, the Whitsundays offers an array of colourful corals and amazing marine mammals and fish. The waters are a pristine blue and a beautiful temperature year-round. Because of the low passenger numbers, this vessel can get to locations that are more remote and off the beaten track so you're guaranteed a unique experience without the crowds.

Eureka II is one of the best tours in the Whitsundays for those who want to enjoy the art and beauty of authentic sailing. Eureka II has an interesting racing history and is still an actively competing boat in the Grand Prix racing circuit, offering guests an experience of a lifetime onboard a real race boat. Whether you want to sit back and watch the crew, or join in and learn a thing or two about sailing, Eureka provides the perfect sailing experience.
