Whitsunday Getaway stands above the rest with its exclusive appearance, low guest numbers and quality service. Their 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. After a long day in the sun, ask your crew if you can get dropped off on a tropical beach like Bali Hai to watch the sun set over a bottle of wine and a delicious freshly prepared antipasto platter. 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.
Whitsunday Getaway will spend its evenings at peaceful, protected anchorages like Nara Inlet on Hook Island, allowing for a relaxing night's sleep on the calm ocean.
Private charters are available on request for an array of voyage lengths (two day minimum). Whitsunday Getaway is owned by local couple Rich and Veronica, who care a lot about their vessel and the type of experience they provide.

The Whitsunday Islands are an important part of the Great Barrier Reef. The fringing reefs of the islands are a snorkeller's paradise. Whitsunday Getaway carries a full compliment of snorkel gear aboard including stinger suits, fins, mask and flotation assistance devices. Snorkel with schools of tropical fish, and be amazed by the bright and vivid colours of the spectacular coral formations. The warm waters and calm seas of the Whitsundays is ideal for snorkelling year round, with an average water temperature of 25 degrees.
Our favourite snorkel spots are based around Dumbell Island, Hayman Island and Hook Island. Dumbell Island is known as the fish tank because of the huge quantity of fish life, and they play right at the back of the boat. The spectacular Mantaray Bay is popular because of the resident giant fish called George, a 1.6m Maori Wrasse. He's very friendly and always seeking attention, and has been known to be a bit of a camera hog.
What better way to explore the 74 Whitsunday Islands than with the sails up! Sailing is definitely a prime focus of Whitsunday Getaway's tours, adding to the sense of serenity of being on the water. Sit back and watch how its done as the crew set the sails or take part and help. The crew are always happy to get you involved if you would like! Sails up, engines off, the sound of the waves crashing at the bow... this is the sound of luxury!
WHITEHAVEN BEACH AND HILL INLET LOOK-OUT
After all that in-water excitement, Whitsunday Getaway will whisk you off towards the world famous Whitehaven Beach. Here you can spend as long as you like sunbathing on the pure white silica sand, or exploring the variety of marine life in the shallow waters. Nearby is a low incline bush walk to the lookout, a world-famous viewpoint overlooking the 7km stretch of Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet.
