Full description
Depart from Airlie Beach and cruise across the crystal waters to the famous Whitehaven Beach. Your day cruise vessel has air-conditioned interior saloons and seating areas outside.

Then, cruise in a smaller vessel along the full length of Whitehaven and across Hill Inlet to the landing point. From here a guided walk following the path and history of the Whitsunday traditional owners, the Ngaro people, will lead you to the lookout and that picture postcard view! Learn about the history, flora and stories of this picturesque area on the way. 

Return back to the southern end for the guided Bushwalk to Solway Circuit Lookout (1.2km): approximately 30 minutes walking at a steady pace, regularly stopping for commentary and picture-perfect moments. Walk past impressive grasstrees, cycads and rock fern, with beautiful views over Solway Passage, Pentecost and Haslewood islands. Once at Solway Circuit, there is the option to continue on the walk to beautiful Chance Bay (6km return). Walk through Whitsunday Island’s forest and woodlands to a secluded beach at Chance Bay. On arrival, you’ll have time to have a swim before the return walk. 

If you’re after the relaxing option; wander back to Whitehaven Beach to your own secluded stretch, laze on the beach or cool off in the azure waters for the afternoon. Cruise staff will have water, beach shades and beach game items on shore for your use throughout the day. Toilet facilities are located close by. A delicious lunch is included for you to enjoy on the beach, and cold drinks will be available for purchase. Return by boat back to Airlie beach for the end of the tour
