Top Tips

This exclusive and comprehensive Whitsundays cruise combines whale watching in wonderful surrounds with a trip to the spectacular Whitehaven Beach. This tour departs from Airlie Beach in the morning where you'll board a comfortable, smaller yet powerful vessel limited to just 8 passengers per trip to ensure the best possible viewing angles. Head out onto the Whitsundays waters in pursuit of seeing the massive yet gentle Humpback Whales up close as they relax, breach and play during their annual migratory period between June and October. See them leap out of the water, slap their fins and even approach the vessel of their own will!

Enjoy complimentary refreshments as the trip makes its way to Whitsunday Island, home to the incredible Whitehaven Beach - widely considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Disembark and take a walk on the ultra-fine silica sand that it's famous for, taking in the views and revelling in one of Australia's most beautiful locations. Learn all about the geography and history of the beach and the Whitsundays as a whole before re-boarding your vessel and returning to Airlie Beach at the conclusion of the tour. Comprising of an epic 4 hour journey with a hint of luxury and multiple inclusions, this is an extensive Whitsundays tour that combines the best of the natural world into a single, enjoyable package.
