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, Airlie Beach and Long Island.

It also connects Whitsunday Coast Airport at Proserpine through to Daydream Island, Long 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.


Where our services operate:

From 6 September 2014 Cruise Whitsundays Airlie Beach Day Cruises and Island Resort Connections will depart from our brand new, purpose-built Maritime Terminal at Port of Airlie. More info >>


Great Barrier Reef Airport (Hamilton Island)
Our vessels operate directly from the Airport pontoon, just 100 metres from the airline check in desks. Porters will transfer your luggage between the terminal and the boats. It is your responsibility to collect your luggage at the designated drop off terminal. There is a vessel to meet most flights with a departure as close as possible to touch down. Passengers should go to the Cruise Whitsundays desk in the arrival concourse. Departing guests similarly arrive directly at the Airport on a vessel timed to suit flight departures.

Whitsundays Coast Airport (Proserpine)

We have a dedicated coach with a meet and greet service at the Airport. As soon as all passengers have boarded the coach, it will go directly to Airlie Beach where a vessel departure is timed for a connection out to the islands. Departing guests should make themselves known to the coach drivers at our marina at Airlie Beach for transfers to the airport. Coach times will be advised when you confirm your booking.
