About
Book a round-trip transfer by water taxi to visit Dunk Island from Mission Beach. When you arrive on Dunk Island, located between Townsville and Cairns, you are free to enjoy it however you wish at your leisure; perhaps explore the rainforest walking tracks, go snorkeling or fishing, or just find your own slice of paradise and relax. The water taxi ride is just 10 minutes each way by fully enclosed 33-foot (10-meter) vessel, which whisks you across the azure waters of the Coral Sea. When booking, select from three options to suit your preferences for departure time and amount of time on the island.

  • For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
What to expect
  • The Mission Beach Dunk Island Water Taxi departs from the beachfront, where you’ll walk through knee-high water to board the Island Spirit. After a 10-minute boat ride, arrive at the Dunk Island jetty. On the island, you have the morning, afternoon, or full day to explore and relax at your leisure, depending on option selected when booking. Dunk Island is home to walking tracks, natural scenery, snorkeling facilities, and the Sunset Bar, which is open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, long weekends, and all school holidays from 10am onward, providing a place to have a bite to eat and a cold drink with the sand between your toes (food, drinks, and any activities are at your own expense). Choose from three different walks, if you wish: a short walk to snorkel at Muggy Muggy Beach, a 2-hour round-trip journey to the top of Mt Kootaloo with views down to the family group of islands and back to Mission Beach, or continue on the Island Circuit Track for about 5.5 miles (9 km) to check out the Valley of the Palms and Coconut Beach. When your time on the island is up, board the ferry for the quick trip back to the mainland, where the crew will hose the sand off your feet before saying goodbye.

The Spit at Dunk! Don’t recommend snorkeling at Beach near jetty when tides out. Very muddy, like quicksand.

We were happy with our experience with our transfers on the water taxi to dunk island. We are a family of six and we rode our way around mission beach including going to the water taxi. The staff were friendly and kind and held our bikes for the day when we were out. Everything ran on time and it’s great value for money:)

Simple quick boat transfer to Dunk Island. Nothing there now after cyclone damage so nothing to do except walk along beach, swim or trek across island (10km hike)
We understood this and were simply revisiting after a number of years since our last visit.

The team at Mission Beach Water Taxi offer good service and a great day excursion to Dunk Island. It's only a 10 minute trip from the beach to the island and guests are provided with a simple map and instructions for options to enjoy their day walking and swimming. The island loop via the lookout is well worthwhile, although the track can be a little soggy and difficult to follow in places. There is water on the island (and hot showers) but no food as at May 2021.

Dunk Island was worth the visit. Although the resort is uninhabited, I had a really pleasant 3 hours there. I got the 9am water taxi which picked us up again at 12. There is a shower and toilet block and drinking water near the jetty but you need to bring your own food. It had rained a few days earlier, so the track through the bush to Muggy Muggy beach was pretty rough in parts and wouldn't suit anyone who is really unsteady on their feet. The snorkelling on the beach was safe and I did see a baby turquoise clam in some coral which was special, but the rest was rather murky - again due to sand cover from recent storms. The boat trip was quick, comfortable, on time and the guys at Mission Beach Water Taxi were lovely. If I had had more time, I would have taken more of their tours as they were a fantastic bunch. I was travelling on my own. Highly recommended!

Nancy and her team offer 10/10 every time we visit dunk (annually for years!) and always do their best to meet our needs. We travel with multiple kids and a bunch of gear for camping and the team always goes above and beyond in making sure we get across to dunk and back without a hassle. They are flexible, super helpful, knowledgeable about the local area/weather, highly competent and so friendly. Turning up at their Wongaling beach office is like visiting family! We can’t recommend them enough for the dunk trip and other tours they run. Thanks so much Nancy and team!!!
