Whitehaven Beach tours with Whitehaven Xpress.

A family operated full day trip with snorkeling, swimming, bush-walking and a Whitehaven Beach BBQ.

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.

A fantastic whole day tour with amazing crew, three stops (snorkeling in Hook Island, bush walking and lookout in Whitsunday island and Whitehaven beach) and finished with a great australian BBQ next to the beach! To point out: small group, free coffee, tea and snacks.

Lunch at white haven beach was catered well given that we requested gluten and dairy free. There was ample food for 44 guests. The snorkeling was... More

I don't even know where to begin with this trip - I had the absolute best day out on this boat. I had initially been a bit unsure as I was going on my own, but I was picked up from my accommodation by Jill, who was friendly and chatty and made me feel at ease instantly. The guys on... More

The tour started off right on time with guides Cam and Ed greeting everyone on the boat and making sure we were excited to get the day started, they served us coffee/tea and biscuits as we... More

From the moment we were picked up in the courtesy bus the staff were very friendly. Each stop offered a spectacular find and the time in each location was perfect. While the staff did not come accross as trained tour guides their commentary was fun and interesting with some quirky facts. The lunch on Whitehaven beach will be a long... More

This trip was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. They made the day so much more enjoyable than just a boat ride. A BBQ lunch was provided with plenty for everybody. On the way some whales were spotted and the crew stopped to boat to let us all have a better... More
