Overview

Fun, fast cruise around the Whitsunday Islands. All in one day visit world famous Whithaven Beach, then it's off to a pristine snorkelling reef off of another island, a delicious picnic lunch served right on the beach, afternoon snacks, entertaining and educational crew commentary throughout the day. Fun from start to finish!

Yes definitely! I would just warn about people who suffer from sea sickness. Keep in mind it's a tour on the open ocean, so the boat does rock back and forth. For neck problems there is no issue as long as you are able to... More
