Hi, I was hoping to book the Solway lass for a trip in Nov 2012 but need to get an early morning Fantasea ferry from Shute Harbour after the trip which ends at 4.30pm on the Friday (too late to get a boat to HI that evening) as I have a 9.55am flight on the Saturday morning to Cairns from HI airport. However, I now understand the Fantasea ferry stops operations this July. While it appears cruise Whitsundays are taking over the operation, i cannot yet get confirmation that they will definately run an early morning ferry from Shute Harbour to HI in order for me to check in for the flight. Can anyone advise on this and if not, can they recommend any cruises that depart around midday on a Tuesday (can't do early morning) and finish on a Thursday in time for me to catch a ferry to HI the same day?
Many thanks Nicky
