Enjoy a full day excursion with Cruise Whitsundays.
Meet at Hamilton Island Marina at 7:50 AM.
Walk up to the Hill Inlet lookout, chill out on Whitehaven Beach and go exploring.
Whitehaven Beach is a definite must see in the Whitsundays. The crystal clear waters and pristine white silica sand of Whitehaven stretch for over seven kilometres along Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsunday Islands National Park. Whitehaven is nature at it’s best. It is the most photographed beach in Australia and repeatedly voted one of the best beaches in the world.
Spend the whole day experiencing all the wonders of the magnificent Whitehaven Beach area. Indulge in the ultimate experience of Whitehaven Beach; from the Northern end exploring the spectacular Hill Inlet, to the Southern – swimming, hiking, sunbathing, soaking up the sun. No other day cruise offered allows you so much time to explore the wonders of Whitehaven Beach. Begin your Whitehaven experience ashore at the Southern end where our crew will advise of the times for the day’s activities – including the trip to Hill Inlet at the Northern end of the beach and the walking tours. These will vary depending on conditions.
Enjoy a leisurely cruise, in our smaller Whitehaven based vessel, along the full length of Whitehaven and across Hill Inlet to the landing point. From here a guided walk following the path and history of the Whitsunday traditional owners, the Ngaro people, will lead you to the lookout and that picture postcard view. There are informative displays along the way that will provide an insight into the history, flora and stories of this picturesque area. A leisurely pace ensures all fitness levels are catered for, and guests take the time to enjoy this superb spiritual place. Walk past impressive grasstrees, cycads and rock fern, with beautiful views over Solway Passage, Pentecost and Haslewood islands. Once at Solway Circuit, there is the option to continue on the walk to beautiful Chance Bay and is a leisurely 90 minutes return. Walk through Whitsunday Island’s forest and woodlands to a secluded beach at Chance Bay. On arrival, you’ll have time to have a swim before the return walk. If you’re after the relaxing option; wander back to Whitehaven Beach to your own secluded stretch, laze on the beach or cool off in the azure waters for the afternoon.
