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 great day out with an awesome crew and other travellers. The trips are pretty small so you have a chance to have a chat with everyone. The crew treats everyone like they are mates and had the time to help anyone out and have a laugh! The locations we visited were absolutely beautiful (even with the weather not at... More

We were told that it would rain and the seas would be very rough that day, but it ended up being way better than expected! The crew were all very friendly and helpful. The boat was small but well-equipped. The places they took you to were excellent - amazing views, a BBQ on a gorgeous beach, some snorkeling, etc. If... More

We had the most enjoyable day on a very comfortable boat in the turquoise waters with a great bunch of people. We had a fab time cruising the waters firstly to Hook Island for some snorkelling the to Whitehaven Beach to enjoy swimming and sunbathing. A barbecue lunch was cooked in the shade behind the trees on the beach. It... More

Had an awesome time with Whitehaven Xpress! My friend and I went out with the crew on January 4th, which for those who know, is prime season for Irukandji Jellyfish (deadly if stung). They offered us all stinger suits for $8. They are a little cumbersome but not only shielded us from dying but helped with potential sunburn. The crew... More

During our stay in the Whitsundays we did this day trip cruise and it was the best day of our entire stay. The crew were brilliant; knowledgeable, safety conscious, professional, friendly, funny and entertaining. The day was well planned out, with first a stop off to snorkel or go on the glass bottom boat, followed by tea and biscuits. Then... More

We had an absolutely brilliant time. Your staff were friendly,funny & all accomodating. The boat was well maintained & very clean but best of all my son's & my dietary needs were very well catered for - something that other companies really lack or refuse to even do. Well done to everyone involved & thank you... The Kovacs Family

We did the day trip with captain Shayne and his mates Cam and Ed. They were better than brilliant! Happy, funny, conscience of safety but really good fun all day. All 3 parts were timed to perfection; Whitehaven Beach & BBQ, the hill inlet and then some of the best coral snorkelling I've ever been lucky enough to do. 10/10.... More
