What You Can Expect
Your tour will include a cruise along Whitehaven beach to Hill Inlet, where you disembark from the boat. Hear the history of the Whitsundays’ traditional owners, the Ngaro people, as you follow your guide on a leisurely walk (suitable for all fitness levels) to Hill Inlet's lookout point where you will get stunning views! Informative displays along the path detail the history, flora and fauna of this picturesque area.
If conditions permit, your boat will take you to nearby Esk Island, a rarely-visited gem with a small reef that is excellent for snorkeling. Snorkeling gear is provided for you to check out the amazing fish and corals! Snorkeling at Esk Island is weather dependent. If it is windy and conditions are not the best, you will be taken to an alternate location for snorkeling.
You’ll also spend several hours with a base at the southern end of Whitehaven beach and have free time to do as you wish: take another hike or find a secluded stretch of sand where you can lounge and dip in the sea. Your guide will be available throughout the day to answer questions and provide beach umbrellas, games and a picnic lunch to enjoy at your leisure. Your small group limited to 16 people ensures a personalized experience.
At the end of your time on Whitehaven beach, your small group will be picked up by boat. As you return to the mainland, afternoon tea will be served on the boat. Enjoy a cuppa as you relax after your day of beach fun. You’ll be returned to your hotel to end your tour.
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.
This is a 'must-see' place during your tour of Australia. Stunningly beautiful..
Tour content was good only let down by the weather and the Half Marathon been run on the beach. Beach was far too crowded to make the trip special and because there is nothing to do when weather is bad we had too much time spent waiting for boat to return! Snorkelling in the morning was good but needed more time and hill walk was nice. Boat crossing was very bumpy but that was due to weather, staff were very good
This tour was amazing!
We had a great day, kept us entertained, not easy with a 7, 12 and 14 year old, saw Turtles, many fish, swam, walked and looked at the stunning scenery, the only let down for the day was the sand flies, that drive you crazy, they bite and annoy you, take something to keep them of you. Would highly recommend it.
Very expensive tour that we were looking forward to - two families, 5 children aged 5-14 - arrived at the check in time early and where told - we are not booked it! After getting a confirmed Viator email the day before - some very disappointed children and adults! It would have been an expensive and long day however on reflection - half a day is plenty on white haven and we will not be using Viator EVER AGAIN.
