Meet the crew and introduce yourself to your fellow passengers as you'll be spending the day in each other's company! You'll be mind-blown with how fast yet steady Viper cruises through the water.

Hill Inlet Lookout and Whitehaven Beach

You'll arrive at Tongue Bay within 45 minutes (which is unheard of in the Whitsundays)! Hill Inlet Lookout is in the running to be one of the most photographed places in the world. With white silica sands and vibrant turquoise waters, the view makes for the ultimate backdrop to any photo - no matter the day! The ever-changing tides mean that there will be no two days where the inlet will look the same! You'll depart Viper and head out on a guided eco bushwalk through the native Australian forest and make your way up to the lookout (it's only a 15 minute short hike but ensure you have comfortable shoes). The views are breathtaking so be sure to take your camera! After your hike you'll board Viper and zip on down to the southern end of Whitehaven Beach. Step foot on the soft and pure silica sands. You'll have lunch on the beach so settle in and enjoy the sunshine for the next hour before making way for the Great Barrier Reef!

Hill Inlet Lookout


Outer Great Barrier Reef

From Whitehaven Beach, Viper can take you to the Outer Great Barrier Reef in under an hour - truly living up to its speedy reputation! Once you're on the reef, prepare for a once-in-a-lifetime snorkelling experience. The Great Barrier Reef is home to thousands of species of fish, dolphins, turtles, sharks, rays and more. Brush shoulders with colourful corals, search for giant clams, and learn about the reef from the onboard marine biologist! You can partake in a guided snorkelling tour with the marine biologist and gain insight on what you're actually looking at. The Great Barrier Reef is known as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World so be sure to make the most of your time underwater!


Return to Airlie Beach

After your fun-filled day, you'll journey back to Airlie Beach. Be sure to take in the views as you cruise past the stunning Whitsunday Islands (there are 74 of them, did you know?). The exhilarating trip will see you speeding back to Airlie Beach between 4:30pm and 5:30pm (depending on the weather conditions of the day). Plenty of time to make the most of your evening in Airlie Beach!

We were visiting from the UK and had limited time at Airlie Beach, so this trip was perfect for us to fit everything in! From start to finish the day was great - friendly and informative staff, great locations and the time spent at each location was perfect.
