This 5-hour cruise to Whitehaven Beach starts with a hotel pickup from either Shute Harbour, Cannonvale, or Airlie Beach. You can also meet at Abell Point Marina South if you prefer that instead. Your hotel pickup happens anytime between 7:20a.m. and 7:50a.m. Check in at the marina is at 8:20a.m. Your catamaran boat takes off on the water at 9a.m. sharp.
Once your boat is out cruising the water, enjoy views of the nearby Whitsunday Islands. You can also purchase a beverage or two (own expense). Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options are available. Tea and coffee are provided free of charge. Along the way to Whitehaven Beach, feast on a barbecue lunch.
Your boat pulls up to the beach, and you can explore, relax, or swim for about an hour and a half to two hours. Then board your boat, and ride back to the marina at about 2p.m. If you met at the marina in the morning, you have the rest of the afternoon to spend as you please. If you are in need of hotel drop-off, that’ll happen when you reach the marina.
