Overview
Explore the Whitsunday Islands in an optimal way—on a high-speed catamaran—during this full-day tour from Airlie. This high-speed boat wastes no time getting to the islands' most famous landmark, the pristine Whitehaven Beach, where you can swim, lounge, and snorkel. Use of snorkeling gear, morning and afternoon tea, and a barbecue lunch are all included.

Highlights
  • Cruise to the Whitsundays on a high-speed catamaran tour from Airlie
  • Learn more on a guided walk with commentary up to Hill Inlet
  • Snorkeling equipment included to explore the underwater world
  • Morning and afternoon tea and barbecue lunch so no one goes hungry
What to Expect
Make your own way to Port of Airlie where you step aboard your high-speed catamaran. Find a seat while the boat ferries you swiftly out to the Whitsunday Islands. Traveling aboard a fast boat allows you to spend more time in the islands themselves. Once you arrive in the islands, enjoy a guided walk with a crew member, during which you learn about the Ngaro people on the way to Hill Inlet lookout. Back on the boat, cruise around the Whitsunday Islands National Park and stop at the Inner Reef for some snorkeling using provided equipment. Explore the turquoise waters and abundant sea life that the Whitsundays are famous for at your leisure. A provided morning and afternoon tea, as well as a midday barbecue lunch, ensures you won’t go hungry throughout the day. The catamaran returns to Port of Airlie at the end of the tour.

Hi Lauuderrrrr, Thankyou for your feedback! Whitehaven Beach is a fantastic spot here in the Whitsundays! It is unfortunate that you were unable to visit Hill Inlet due to the tides. Hopefully you will be able to revisit soon and tick this off! Thankyou Cruise Whitsundays

Absolutely cannot recommend this sailing excursion more. From the moment you board (or for us out of Daydream Island, the mini Camira) you are encapsulated by the adventure hidden in the sails. The best sailing experience we've ever had. Everything was amazing. The crew were
