Hi there, I would highly recommend Whitehaven Express. They go to the Lookout at Hill Inlet and the view is to die for. Not all the boats have a permit to visit such a beautiful place. When you arrive you can book your trip then. Bring your sunnies, swim suit, and sunscreen.

There are so many options to choose from when travelling out to Whitehaven Beach. If your just going for the day, then Ocean Rafting, Whitehaven Xpress, and Mantaray Charters all go to Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and do a snorkel spot all in the same day. If your looking at going overnight then it all depends on your budget and what your looking for. I'd say the two best overnight sailing trip companies in Airlie would be Explore Whitsundays and Whitsunday Sailing Adventures - but that's only because they are umbrella companies who cna cater for a range of ages and budgets etc. Otherwise there are plenty of other companies in Airlie who do both day trips and overnight trips.

Hope this was helpful!

Another suggestion is to wait until you arrive .Check the companies & boats out to see whom offers the best deals regarding suiting your own needs.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions,I think we may wait until we arrive as Ellemay suggests but do they tend to get booked up in mid September when we arrive,that is our only worry?
