Full description
Cruise to Whitehaven Beach, one of the world’s most beautiful, on this 6-hour cruise. Depart early in the morning on a high-speed vessel for a cruise through the Whitsunday Islands and be the first on the beach. Alternatively, depart later in the day and enjoy a sunset cruise home. Morning or afternoon tea will be served depending on option selected. Board the 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 you to the world famous Whitehaven Beach, a definite 'must see' in the Whitsundays. Prepare to be dazzled by the breathtaking beauty and vivid white sand of Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island. This uninhabited island is one of Australia's true gems. Wander along the beach to your own secluded stretch, laze on the sand or cool off in the azure waters.

    Whitehaven was a lovely beach to visit and we would definitely go back. However, it is advertised on the website as a 6 hour trip which was actually 7 as they didn’t factor in the extra time for travel at the end. Whilst the beach was heavenly the travel time took around 3/4 of the entire 7 hours which was a bit disappointing. If I was to do this again I would seek an express way or alternate travel to the island.

    Great trip - highly recommend 1/2 day (not whole) - at the end of the day it’s just a beach with some amazing walks and views - so if you went for longer than half day you just end up lying on the beach (which some people may love) - but half day I felt was perfect!

    Hassle free experience. Boat was clean and the crew were friendly and inviting. We loved the boat journey and getting glimpses of day dream and Hamilton Island however the star of the show is definitely Whitehaven beach. It was stunning! There are trails through the bush for walkers or you can spend your time sunbathing and bobbing in the calm ocean. This experience has made it onto our revisit list and I can't wait for that day to happen. Thanks to the team for a day to remember.
