Whitehaven Beach tours with Whitehaven Xpress.

Whitehaven Xpress offers a full day tour from Airlie Beach, including a Hill Inlet lookout walk, Snorkel or Glass bottom boat viewing at Mantaray Bay and 2 hours on the Whitehaven Beach. Whilst spending the most amount of time on the actual Whitehaven Beach, we provide you with a fabulous Aussie beach BBQ including steak, sausages, chilli burgers, salads and tropical fruits. (Vegetarians are catered for on request) The BBQ is prepared for your enjoyment under the shade of the trees while utilising the National Parks picnic tables. On our homeward journey a platter of cheese and biscuits is served.

Departs daily at 9 am from Abell Point Marina and returns approx. 5pm with courtesy van pickup.

The daytrip is family operated with Terry, Jill, Dan, and Shane providing a unique personal service.

My wife and I had a fun day on this activity to Whitsunday Island. The crew was very friendly, efficient and funny as well. The tour commentary was interesting and very humorous, and the boat was comfortable and fast. The BBQ lunch on the beach at Whitehaven was amazing, as were the stops at the hill for the fabulous view... More

They picked us up from our accommodation and dropped us home. The view from the top of the ship was amazing. Morning tea, a hot BBQ lunch and snacks were provided. There were also soft drinks, wine, beer and mixed spirits available to buy. The crew really know their stuff and are very passionate about the Whitsundays. The breeze came... More

We had a wonderful day with Whitehaven Xpress. Went on board at Airlie Beach, spent 2 hours on Whitehaven beach including a nice BBQ, then up to beautiful Hill Inlet (a must see!) and afterwards snorkeling at a really nice spot at Hook Island. Everything was perfectly organized and the crew was amazing and very helpful. Can not be better... More

The day was perfect. The staff were fantastic. Very professional and friendly. Pick up and drop off worked well. Lunch was lovely, and I was made a homemade vege burger. I was impressed that my stuff was wrapped in foil so it didn't mix with meat juices, not many people would have thought of that. Picnic site was lovely and... More

The staff were really friendly (except for the grumpy bus driver, he has a chip on his shoulder) and Cam is a funny bugger with bad dad jokes and puns a plenty! The lookout had amazing view where I even figured out the pano on the phone!. It was cloudy and raining on our day, so the snorkelling spot was... More

Lachlan thank you for your lovely review. sorry the bus driver let us down this day. (most of the drivers are quite well balanced with a chip on each shoulder). I will personally have a chat to each of them, it is important and is really taken seriously. How good is it seeing a turtle up close - a rare... More

I just returned from doing this day trip and it was the highlight of my second trip to Australia. The views from the Hill Inlet were stunning, the Aussie BBQ with fresh fruit was delicious, and we had just the right amount of time on the beach and snorkeling. The staff was friendly and made this day a memorable one.

The staffs were really friendly and bonus point for being very environmental cautious. They even picked up the rubbish on the way. The lookout had amazing view. Snorkeling spot was on point! Lunch was surprisingly delicious and sumptuous. We really enjoyed our day trip.

Dear Ha D Thank you for your review and noticing the small things we do along the way! Great news for Qld is plastic bags at supermarkets etc are about to get the boot, so even less pollution that has a major impact on our back yard! Thank you for your review, Capt. Shane More
