About Us

What we do

Cruise Whitsundays is an exciting, innovative and experienced maritime operator, based in Airlie Beach. We know how lucky we are to call the Whitsundays home, and work hard to showcase the highlights of this incredible region to visitors from around the world.

We operate a fantastic selection of island transfers, day cruises and activities throughout the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef. Day cruises include visits to the reef, gorgeous Hamilton Island, famous Whitehaven Beach and full-day sailing adventures. We also offer Reefsleep – a fabulous night under the stars on the outer Great Barrier Reef and Australia’s first underwater accommodation, ReefSuites.

Along with our sublime natural environment, our upbeat and helpful staff are our greatest asset. We’re trained to adhere to strict safety standards onboard our vessels, but also know how to have fun – our guests’ safety and enjoyment are our top priorities.

Journey Beyond

Cruise Whitsundays is part of the Journey Beyond Group – a national business focused on bringing Australia’s most iconic experiences to life.

Journey Beyond has a growing national footprint, and is fast positioning itself as one of the largest experiential tourism businesses in the country, with tours, cruises, accommodation and holiday packages across the length and breadth of Australia.

Our aim is to take our guests beyond, to ignite their imagination and to transform the amazing into the breathtaking.

Our Community Support Program

Cruise Whitsundays is proud to sponsor a range of events in the Whitsundays through in-kind community support. We’re committed to supporting the community it works within. As such, comprehensive and generous community sponsorship is undertaken throughout the year to support activities that have both a community and commercial aspect.

Our program allows small groups and events in our region to flourish and helps create the social fabric of our community.

The community support we offer is significant and provides real benefit to our local region by assisting so many community groups, charities, and events to operate successfully for the benefit of so many different local residents.


Our sponsorship budget is prioritised specifically to support events that attract visitors/participants from outside of the region because these events have proven to bring real economic benefit to the whole town. We are the very proud major sponsor of the Cruise Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef Festival.
