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.

Had a great time out with the guys yesterday. It was a stunning day and the relaxed attitude of the crew made the day all the more enjoyable. It felt like we could still do things at our own pace such as the inlet walk, even though they were working to times to make sure we did everything. The BBQ... More

Cameron and I had an amazing time. The crew was polite, knowledgeable and professional. It had a little bit of everything: beach, hiking, and snorkelling. Best day of our Sydney to Cairns road trip by far! Thanks again for getting us in with out last minute request.

The trip was well organised and as advertised. The crew was quite helpful and very friendly.. They take a lot of effort in making sure you have a good experience.. Special dietary preferences are taken care of in the middle of no-where !! Overall a very good one..

It was the second time I've been out on Whitehaven Xpress and both times were brilliant. Captain Dan, Doo-Dah and Wayne ensured that we were safe and happy whilst ever travelling on the boat. The snorkelling was fantastic, with the option of the glass bottom boat for those who aren't confident swimmers, and hot tea and coffee waiting back on... More

Had a great day thanks to the guys on Whitehaven X Press. Whitehaven as specular as I thought it would be. Great barbi lunch and lovely salads. Crew really looked after everyone. Very safety conscious too which is good to see. Thanks again.

Both Allan and I thought the tour was great. Dan, Cam and Chris were helpful courteous and informative. Loved Cams sense of humour! Dan was drenched by the time we arrived back to Airlie. Felt sorry for him. Could a protective cover be constructed around the wheel house? Also, during the introductory speech about safety and toilet location; explain how... More

If you are considering a Whitsunday cruise make sure you choose this one, fantastic crew who obviously love there jobs. We where lucky enough to get seats upstairs and 10 mins after departing experienced the amazing sight of a hump backed whale 30metres from the boat and spotted several more on the way back including a mum and baby!

We were picked up at the hotel at 08.30 and brought to the boat. We were leaving for the day tour with a total of 41 people, the boat is big and comfortable enough for this amount. Cam, Chris and Captain Dan were the staff for the day, they made our day really unforgettable. On our way to Whitsunday Islands... More

The guys on Whitehaven Express looked after us so well, we had the best BBQ at Whitehaven Beach and the spot they took us snorkeling was amazing. A great day was had by myself and my 5 friends, cant rate this company high enough for their care and quality of our trip.
