HALF DAY CRUISE

CRUISE MAP

 

Whitehaven Beach - recently rated Australia's #1 beach.

See the very best of the Whitsunday Islands National Park on this fully guided half day cruise.

Board our Whitehaven vessel for the scenic cruise to this magnificent beach. Your cruise vessel has expansive seating areas inside and out and your friendly skipper will provide an informative commentary on the history and natural wonders of the area. Sit back, breathe in the sea air, sip a wine or beer and marvel at the 74 Island Wonders of the Whitsundays, starting with views of Passage Peak and the imposing Pentecost Island.

The waters of Solway Passage lead us to the world famous Whitehaven Beach, a definite 'must see' in the Whitsundays. The crystal clear aqua waters and pristine white silica sand stretch for over seven kilometres along Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays. It is Mother Nature at her best - the most photographed beach in Australia and named “Queensland’s Most Beautiful Beach”.

Wander along the beach to your own secluded stretch, laze on the beach or cool off in the azure waters.

Passengers departing from Airlie Beach will cruise via Daydream Island and/or Hamilton Island to collect other guests, enroute to Whitehaven Beach.

Morning and afternoon teas are included. Sandwiches, snacks and
a range of soft drinks, beers, wines and mixers are available for
purchase onboard.
