Undoubtedly one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Whitehaven Beach is one of the Whitsundays ‘must do’s’. Cruise Whitsundays’ high speed and comfortable vessels cruise through the Whitsunday islands to Whitehaven Beach twice per day offering a taste of this spectacular icon.
The half day cruises allow you to explore the more remote, beautiful and secluded bays of the Whitsunday islands enroute to Whitehaven Beach, with both indoor and outdoor seating to enjoy the views. The informative commentary on the history of the Whitsundays provides an insight to this beautiful region.
The tour gives you plenty of time on the beach to soak up the sunshine, wade in the shallows of the crystal clear water, build sandcastles and take plenty of pictures of the stunning beach. Morning or afternoon tea is served onboard the cruise.
PLEASE NOTE: The half day cruise visits the main 7km stretch of Whitehaven Beach. If you wish to include the Hill Inlet walk, or spend any time at the northern end of the beach, please book the ‘Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet & Lookout’ Full Day Exploring Cruise.
To keep Whitehaven Beach, pristine and as untouched as possible there are no shops or cafes and only limited toilet facilities. Sandwiches and snacks can be purchased onboard the Cruise Whitsundays vessel.
