“Good professional service”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

We travelled to/from Hamilton Island via Shute Harbour, and the service we received from everyone including the local shop (coffee and snacks) to the Cruise Whitsundays ferry staff was very professional and friendly

“Great alternative to the Airlie noise”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

This is an alternative to staying in the heart of airlie. It's quiet with great views, albeit no beach access. However, many of the tour boats leave from Shute Harbor, and the Whitsunday airport is very close by (for small plane barrier reef flights), so you can sleep later for your pick up than those people needing to get picked up in Airlie. You will need a car to get here, and there is a good supermarket in Jubilee Pocket (between Airlie and Shute Harbor), an IGA, that is much cheaper and has a much better selection than the Airlie Beach Supermarket.

“Quiet”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

The area is quiet and very easy to get to with boat tours departing from this location. The water is beautiful but can not be swam in

“Nice, friendly helpful staff at marina terminal”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Went to Shute harbour to catch ferry to daydream island, was secure parking and staff helpful, cafe didn't have basic juice for kids only fancy blends and flavoured water... Hubby had to drop us off at terminal then go park car, as too far to walk with kids bags etc in heat.
