Most beautiful beach we've ever seen! The views from the walks up the hill are stunning! Food was very good and weather was perfect. Highly recommend this trip.

We had a super trip over to Whitehaven Beach - everything was organised so well. The Hill Inlet Walk was also very interesting with superb views - the unfortunate thing was the weather whilst we were at the Hill Inlet Walk - it poured with rain but once we returned to Whitehaven Beach the weather was beautiful. The packed lunch was also extremely good. Our tour guides were also exceptionally good

We took the departure from Hamilton Island, only two minutes from our apartment.
The Cruise Whitsundays boat is quite large - this is definitely not a small group experience, and you also share the main vessel with the half-day cruise passengers. But, that means it's an enclosed air conditioned vessel with a bar onboard.
Whitehaven Beach itself is incredible, despite the damage from the cyclone. The day we went was overcast and had a few showers, but the location on the beach where we landed is well sheltered and the Cruise Whitsundays crew have gazebos to hide under if needed. They also provide beach toys, like buckets and spades, frisbees, footballs, etc.
The Hill Inlet walk part is limited to groups of around 12. We travelled in a smaller vessel up the coast and got dropped off on a different beach to make our way up to the outlook. This was definitely worth the extra effort! The view is incredible.
The provided cold lunch pack is a little small, but was tasty.
There was also an extra optional walk to Chance Bay - for this, the same smaller vessel takes you around the island and drops you off for a 3.6 km walk back to Whitehaven. Again, well worth it.
All in all, this was a fantastic tour.

Really enjoyed the day trip. Snorkelling was good and views from Hill Inlet spectacular. Whitehaven is a lovely beach but just remember there is nothing else there.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

Probably the most beautiful day trip I went on. Nick was an excellent guide. I loved the Hill Inlet Lookout and I am so glad I booked this tour. Half a day would have been way too short. Whitehaven Beach is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen.
