Cruise Whitsundays operate a number of vessels throughout the Whitsundays. They deliver passengers to islands from the mainland, Great Barrier Reef Airport at Hamilton Island and Whitsunday Coast Airport at Proserpine.



Cruise Whitsundays operates 'Resort Connections' an island resort transfer service in the Whitsundays. This service connects Great Barrier Reef Airport at Hamilton Island to Daydream Island Resort and Spa, and Airlie Beach.

It also connects Whitsunday Coast Airport at Proserpine through to Daydream Island and Hamilton Island, as well as providing a service between the islands and the mainland.

The service provides a seamless, hassle free and fast connection for arriving and departing guests with modern, purpose built vessels.

The vessels are decked with comforts including air conditioning, plasma screens to provide information on the resorts and area, a bar serving REAL coffee and a full range of drinks and snacks. Hmmm… decisions, do you have a cappuccino or rum and coke?!

Note: We also offer an Island Hopper Pass so you can cruise the islands at your leisure.
