Hi,

Many thanks

I havent done any for awhile so hopefully others who have will come on board and advise you

Some do stop at Whitehaven but only for a swim as there isn't anything to see underwater on Whitehaven as it is just a beautiful long stretch of clear blue water and white sand

Check out the list of activities on the offical HI site and you will get a full list of tours plus costs ..

Why not do a day trip to Whitehaven for the beach, and a day on Banjo Patterson sailing and snorkelling?

Hi,

When I went in February this year we went on the H20 Snorkel Safari. It was just a 3 hour trip but we went out and snorkelled for about 45 minutes and then went across to Whitehaven Beach for a drink and brief look around. I think it cost us about $85 each.

We only did this short tour because we have snorkelled further up in North QLD out on Ribbon Reef and Lizard Island.

Otherwise, depending on time you can do 2 seperate tours. One to Whitehaven Beach and another to the Reef. Besides the Banjo Patterson sailing and snorkelling there is Fantasea's Reef trip which is a full day (and it takes you about 2 hours to get out to the reef) but you are there for the day.

:)
