This wonderful half-day cruise takes you to paradise on the Whitsunday’s Whitehaven Beach – Australia’s most photographed beach. Take advantage of the pristine aqua ocean, soft silica sands and gloriously warm sun as you spend your time on the island doing whatever takes your fancy.

• Enjoy a scenic cruise to Whitsunday Island’s Whitehaven Beach on a comfortable and luxurious cruise vessel
• Learn about the Whitsundays 74 islands with informative commentary from the skipper
• Morning and afternoon tea is provided, or you can purchase snacks, sandwiches and drinks from the on-board bar
• Spend a glorious 1 ½ to 2 hours on the island’s southern end, participating in whatever activity you’d like

With an early morning departure of 7:00 am from Port of Airlie, 7:35 am from Daydream Island Resort and Spa or 8:20 am from Hamilton Island, you’ll board your Whitehaven cruise vessel and set sail for paradise. During your cruise to Whitehaven, you can relax aboard the roomy vessel, enjoying your complimentary morning tea with comfortable indoor and outdoor seating and on-board bar. With soft drink, beer or wine in hand, you can learn about the Whitsundays region from the skipper’s commentary, while you take in the stunning views of the 74 glorious islands and the surrounding blue ocean, Passage Peak and Pentecost Island.

Continuing along Solway Passage on your journey, you’ll arrive at Whitehaven Beach and we guarantee you’ll be instantly awed by the beauty. Over seven kilometres of pure white silica sand, fringed by lush green foliage is lapped by calm, clear and oh-so blue water in a picture perfect scene. Whitehaven Beach is Australia’s most photographed beach and it’s not hard to see why – this beach is truly divine!

After you disembark on the beach, you’ll have 1.5 to 2 hours to do whatever you please. If you’d like to explore the island, there are plenty of things to see and places to go. If you’d like to go for a swim, the water is warm, clean and inviting. Alternatively, you might just want to lay in the soft, fine sand and soak up the warming rays of the sun. Why not do everything? Regardless of your choices, you’ll feel as though you are royalty visiting your own private oasis – there’s truly nothing that compares to the feeling of relaxing and having fun in a tropical paradise!

After your day of luxurious indulgence, you’ll reboard the cruise vessel and set sail for home, admiring all the views once again.
