Whitsunday Blue

Hi guys,

Thinking of booking the Whitsunday Blue catamaran. Has anyone had a stay on this boat? ;o) Any info welcome!

Not looking for the 20+ person party boat. I understand that the Whitsunday blue is 8 pax. Any info on how good the crew are? Good food? Snorkeling catered for?

Thanks in advance, ;o)

Good boat, a bit short on the tour being 2days/2nights but will show you plenty. There are others that do a similar trip, but not with the low numbers of Whitsunday Blue. Go through The Whitsunday and Airlie Beach forums and you'll see plenty on the best cruises and the best way to go about getting them. cheers airlian

Airlien is correct, a 2 day 2 night cruise is quite short and a big push to get to have a few snorkels and Whitehaven Beach, first afternoon is gone getting out there and so is the last morning getting back, which leaves you with only 1 full day out there.

Have a look around for a 3 day 2 night cruise, you will get twice as much for one day more.

Hi Spanky

Whitsunday Blue has found a formula that is very popular, This boat is usually fully booked around four weeks forward and I know that the operators are adding a second vessel in March to increase capacity. Im not sure if I agree with the previous post. From Airlie Beach to Whitehaven beach is around 35 miles and many of the older larger vessels here, some dont go over 5 Knots. This means on some boats it can take a full day of steaming into the prevailing south east winds just to get to see the beach. The modern fleet here seems to be going for faster catamarans. Boats capable of ten knots can do it under 4 hours and big power vessels can do it in two hours. Therefore the range of two day two night vessels trips now offered in the Whitsundays has grown quiet a lot.
