Seven pools, boutiques, galleries, bars, a number of restaurants, over 40 optional activities, walking trails and a koala and wildlife gallery are just a few of its features.

Picturesque Whitehaven Beach is one of the Whitsundays premier natural attractions - five miles (seven kilometers) of glistening white sand complemented by crystal clear waters. Renowned as one of the top ten beaches in the world, Whitehaven Beach is located on Whitsunday Island, the largest island in the region and is fully protected and uninhabited due to its National and Marine Park status. Its shallows are graced by various species of turtles, and these ancient creatures are often sighted during daily visits.

    No more then a ferry service, no maps of islands or information given which is ok if all you want to do is snorkel or dive. The ‘pub’ meal included was not that good, so sorry yogi w a negative review but I didn’t enjoy this trip

    We were very pleased with the vessel, helpful and cheerful crew and in particular the efficient Hamilton Island, hop on/off bus. The lunch and dinning facilities were also wonderful. We did, however initially experience difficulty finding the Whitsunday boat, largely because in the various brochures a slightly different location was marked.

    Great tour well organised with free time and lunch 2hrs at Whitehaven was perfect then back to Hamilton island for lunch and a look around. Well worth the trip

    Fantastic and beautiful morning at Whitehaven. Then lunch at Hamilton Island, Marina Tavern, delicious ice cream, and the free shuttle was great. I would recommend this tour to all.

    Everything was perfect. Great crew, big boat with lots of space and the best part?! They have a professional photographer on board to make your day unforgettable.

    Hamilton Island was amazing, we weren’t advised or aware that we could pre book anything. Everything was fully booked - real shame. One Tree Hill is a must stop for cocktails and views.
    Whitehaven beach is stunning but there is absolutely no shade what so ever. More time at Hamilton would be better

    A fantastic trip. We loved Hamilton Island. The free shuttle bus was handy from the harbour to the beach. The water was so blue. Lovely restaurants. Beautiful pools that you can use for free. Whitehaven beach was a real paradise beach, white sand and clear blue sea. A photographer from on the ferry was taking photos which you could buy. We were there when jellyfish etc were a danger so anyone swimming had to wear a head to toe stinger suit.

    really crowded tour, lots of people, it is not a tour actually, you just combine boats trips with other people and spend time on your own on each island, very stressful always new people come on the boat, get out of the boat, you do not have a guide, just free time and your tickets.

    3 stars for the Cruise and its staff which is professional, helpful and friendly.
    0 star for Hamilton island and Whitehaven beach which is so boring. Hamilton island is crowded by millionaire residents and resorts, shops and yachts. We didn't want to spend time and money to see these things which are not belong to the nature and sanctuary island. Lastly, Whitehaven beach is like any beach in the Sunshine Coast unless you landed in right spot as shown in the Publicity picture. We were more disappointed with a long hours strong draft and cloudy sky.
