Sample Itinerary

Whitehaven Beach
Whitehaven Beach is voted as one of the best beaches in the world, and for good reason! Relax in paradise on pure white silica sand and frolic in the topaz blue waters.

Hill Inlet
Your host will lead you on a guided bushwalk up Whitsunday Island to the magic swirling sands of Hill Inlet. As the sands are ever-changing, your photos at the top of the lookout will truly be one-of-a-kind.  

Snorkelling
The Whitsunday Islands are an important part of the Great Barrier Reef and its vast and diverse ecosystem. The fringing reefs of the islands are a snorkeller's paradise, where you will find amazing marine life, nestled away in calm coves and protected bays.

Sailing
Sailing on Whitsunday Getaway provides a calming and comfortable experience. Feel free to help the crew hoist the sails, or simply sit back and enjoy the ride.

Stand-up paddle
Paddleboards allow for a great view of the surrounding area, and are a fun way to explore the reef and coastline! From above the water, you will get to enjoy the reef in a new way as you quietly make your way around while fish and other marine life swim below.

*Private Charter itineraries are flexible. You can work with your crew to plan out your perfect holiday on board Whitsunday Getaway!

"Where do I begin? We never sailed before, but we will certainly do it again! Our Captain Les and first mate hostess Bebe were perfect. Both very chill professionals making us all feel comfortable and easy to get to know one another/ Bebe is a real gem, always positive, smiling and accommodating. She is an amazing chef-We never expected such delicious meals. She is very warm and friendly-I will miss her. Would be great to have along as a guide the rest of our trip! She is very knowledgable. Was great to share a conversation with Les, he is the best captain and also really accommodating. If we come back we would love to have the same crew! Thank you so much! "
