Day One: Whitsunday Islands
Heading straight to Whitsunday Island for a short walk to the famous Hill Inlet Lookout. After time spent taking in the breathtaking views, you will jump back on board and head to South Whitehaven for a swim and to marvel at the white silica sands of the beach.
Then we head to the north end of Hook Island or Hayman Island, the best location decided on the day, and meet up with our dive team for an optional scuba dive. Dives must be pre booked in a package, and regardless if this is your first time or you are a pro, you will be amazed at the tropical oasis waiting for you under the water. If you are not keen on a scuba dive, we will provide transfers to the nearest beach, and you can go for a snorkel at your leisure or simply top up the tan.
Mid afternoon we will start to head home, back to Abell Point Marina, arriving at 4:30pm. Courtesy bus will then transfer guests back to local accommodation houses.
This itinerary will vary based on the tide and prevailing weather conditions. We plan the daily itinerary around the high tides at Tongue Bay for ease of access for guests to the Hill Inlet Lookout walk. So some days the itinerary is reversed, starting in the morning at the north end of the Whitsundays and then heading to Whitehaven Beach in the afternoon.
