This was an awesome experience. Cruise from Airlie goes via Daydream and Hamilton Islands which was good to get a glimpse of those islands. Whitehaven itself was amazing, from the clear water to the squeaky silica sand, there is a reason this is one of the best beaches in the world. Couldn't recommend the tour more highly.

Fantastic day on Whitehaven Beach. Part the adventure is also getting there, enjoying the cruise and scenery of the Whitsunday Islands.

Well organised, the trip out was great, saw a couple of whales. The beach is stunning. We took the short 1.3km walk for great views.

My only regret is that I only booked a half-day trip. I wish I could have stayed longer! The beach is absolutely gorgeous!! There aren and #39;t any amenities there... So you need to pack what you need (and take it with you when you go) but I could have stayed all day! You won and #39;t regret it!!

Everything about this trip was great. The crew was wonderful and we had plenty of time to explore Whitehaven Beach. I should have done better research ahead of time, though, because the truly iconic part of Whitehaven Beach is the Hill Inlet. On the half day cruise, you miss the Hill Inlet part. I would recommend booking the full day cruise so that you don't miss out on the Hill Inlet if that is important to you.

This was a fantastic Cruise. The trip to Whitehaven beach was smooth and fast, time spent on the beach was just enough to enjoy the features of this remarkable place, we went swimming, snorkeling and bush walking. We all enjoyed the complimentary afternoon tea on board the boat and I feel this cruise was good value for money. I highly recommend this cruise to other visitors to Hamilton Island.

Great packaging and scheduling with entertaining commentary.
Occasionally difficult to hear the tour guides because of the wind, but otherwise a wonderful experience
