Hop on / hop off

This is the perfect 'hop on, hop off' option, allowing you to cruise through the islands as you please! 

Explore the Whitsundays at your leisure. Our high speed vessels cruise around the Whitsunday islands all day transferring guests and day trippers between the mainland and Daydream and Hamilton Islands. If you would like to do your own thing then arm yourself with a pass, timetable and map then set out exploring the Whitsunday islands on your very own itinerary.

Just take a look at our individual Island Escape pages to get an idea of the attractions at each island, make your choices and enjoy whatever you fancy from all that this spectacular region has to offer. If you would like a more detailed information guide for any particular island our crew can assist onboard plus they'll be able to advise you on the best things to see and do.

Depart whenever you like - with your copy of the Cruise Whitsundays 'Resort Connections' timetable you can plan your day and go explore the islands.

Arrive back at your starting point whenever you like, but do be sure to catch that last departure from whichever island you are on or make sure you have your credit card and toothbrush with you!!

The cruise vessels

Our fleet of day cruise vessels have air conditioned interior saloons and seating areas outside. 

Where you can cruise

The islands you can hop off at with this pass are Daydream Island and Hamilton Island and you'll see many more as you cruise. The Island Hopper Pass does not visit Whitsunday Island or Whitehaven Beach. Because there are no set departure and arrival times you need to make your own way to / from our marina at Port of Airlie.
