We're an exciting, innovative and experienced maritime operator in the wonderful Whitsundays!
We love - really, LOVE - this incredible area of the world!
We know how lucky we are to call this area 'home' so we do our very best to showcase the highlights of the Whitsundays to visitors from around the world. We work hard to operate our business well and have won multiple awards over the years. Our most recent award was the Major Tour and/or Tour Operator 2015 at the Whitsunday Business and Tourism Awards.
Our staff are smiley, bubbly and helpful and are a huge asset to Cruise Whitsundays. They really do have our travellers enjoyment at heart and have a lot of fun on the job. They're all trained in their areas of work and adhere to strict safety standards onboard our vessels.
What we do
We provide a fantastic selection of island transfers, day cruise experiences and activities throughout the Whitsunday Islands National Park and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Our day cruises include visits to Great Barrier Reef Camira Sailing Adventure to Whitehaven Beach and Island Escape day cruises to Hamilton Island as well as a selection of cruises to Whitehaven Beach and Airlie Beach. We now even offer the opportunity to spend the night under the stars at our outer Great Barrier Reef pontoon with Reefsleep!
