What You Can Expect

If you have any questions, your guide is available throughout the day.
A guided boat tour takes you to Hill Inlet where you disembark for a leisurely walk led by your guide (suitable for all fitness levels) to Hill Inlet's lookout point. Admire stunning views from this popular vantage point and hear the history of the Whitsundays’ traditional owners, the Ngaro people. Informative displays along the path detail the history, flora and fauna of this pretty area.
Conditions permitting, take a short boat ride to Esk Island, a rarely-visited gem with a small reef that has great snorkeling. Use the provided snorkeling gear and check out the colorful fish coral reef and fish. If the conditions at Esk Island are unfavorable, your guide takes you to an alternate location for snorkeling.
At the end of your time on Whitehaven beach, your small group will be picked up by boat. Enjoy afternoon tea on the boat as you relax after your day of beach fun. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the early evening.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Paradise on earth, in my opinion... The inlet is by far the prettiest part of the day. The sand is so pure white and the water so beautifully green/blue... Having a full day on the beach and lots of time near the inlet gives you plenty of time to take some amazing pictures and relax, too. During the snorkeling, we didn't see much though, because there was too much sand in the water. The lunch was good, and team takes good care of you. This tour is a must if you're in the area!!
Brilliant trip. Great guide. Wonderful day.
Excellent day special the inlet view an experience I will never forget the tour guide was top class a trip not to miss
Definitely a must do if you go to the Whitsundays. The tour guide was fantastic and nature put on a beautiful show with the fish coming right up to my goggles to say hello and a turtle just cruising by!
Spent 2 weeks driving from Cairns to Brisbane, and undoubtedly the highlight of of our fortnight was this cruise. Our guide Craig was superb, so enthusiastic, so knowledgeable and approachable he really made it for us. Unmissable
Great day and amazing views.
A truly great day out and our guide for the inlet walk was particularly helpfull in explaining about the terrain.
If you only do one tour mak it this one.
