Sail around the Whitsunday Islands and visit the best snorkel spots, pristine beaches, reef systems rich in marine life and amazing bush walks with breath-taking views. A flexible itinerary not only allows for passengers to give their input on what they want to see but also allows keen sailors to take the helm and for enthusiastic snorkellers to spend plenty of time in the warm tropical waters. Each tour will also allow guests to visit Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout to spend time at one of Australia's most popular destinations.
Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout
Whitehaven Beach is undoubtedly one of the most iconic and beautiful beaches in the world. The stretches of shoreline and warm blue shallows make for a beach paradise that is hard to pass up! During your time on board Bliss, you will get to visit this amazing beach and spend time exploring all of its beauty and wonder. And don't forget the lookout point at Hill Inlet, the third most photographed place in Australia and with reason! Grab a photo with your partner with one of the most amazing backdrops around.
Snorkel among the colourful and diverse reefs of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park during your tour on board Bliss. Your crew will take you to some of the best reefs around where you will get in the water to explore and enjoy all the beauty that will surround you! You can look forward to seeing fish, corals, stingrays and maybe some sea turtles as you swim along the surface with your loved one.
