Fantastic day out, with a good mix of activities, all for a decent honest price. The thing that makes this trip though is the crew, a great bunch and always up for a laugh! Avoid the big rip off tour, and go with the guys at Whitehaven Xpress

A must do trip for those wanting a great fun day with an awesome crew. You will enjoy a comfortable ride, with down to earth team members, that enjoy a laugh with you. BBQ lunch on beautiful Whitehaven Beach, a short walk to View Point Lookout, then snorkling in the beautiful waters just off Hook Island. Plenty of cool drinks... More

The staff was really cool and awesome throughout the complete day. On the way out they told us couple of things concerning the area and showed us some spots. They made a nice barbie for lunch and on the way to the next stop the spotted out turtles and sharks. And a big plus - small boat - so not... More

It was a wavey day so the usual steady crystal clear water had a lot of leaves and bits in, still is an amazing beach you get about 2 hours there all together,, seen a... More

Then on to the other end of the island for a barbie lunch, prepared by the hard working, still friendly crew Part 3 of this trip was... More

They promote a friendly atmosphere and kept an extra eye out for the kids, much thanks to Kate, Evan & Doo-Dah. Equipment was in good condition & the food was basic but... More

My husband and I took the one day trip to Whitehaven Beach which included the walk to Hill Inlet with the most amazing view! We enjoyed a delicious barbecue lunch on the beach and snorkelling at Manta-ray Bay to complete the day.
