Whitehaven Beach & Hamilton Island - 2 Iconic Destinations
Wednesday 25th July
Cruise through the magnificent Whitsunday islands to Whitehaven Beach and Hamilton Island. Ashore you will explore each island for a day out and that will be the highlight of your holiday!
Whitehaven and Hamilton are two of the Whitsundays - and Australia's - most well known spots. They're famous for good reason... take this day cruise and find out for yourself why they're such popular places to visit! Here's a clue: jaw-dropping scenery and everything an Aussie island resort could offer.
Your cruise will take you from Port of Airlie onto the beautiful whites sands of Whitehaven Beach. There you'll spend the morning before re-boarding the vessel to cruise onto Hamilton Island.
At Hamilton Island, you might like to jump on a shuttle bus and tour around the island. The shuttles circuit the island all day stopping at key attractions, scenic points and resorts. So hop on and off as you please. There is a generous choice of swimming pools, including the Main Pool with its swim-up bar or hit the long sandy curve of Catseye Beach for seaside fun. Be sure to visit the Hamilton Island Wildlife Park. It provides the perfect place for you to get up close and personal with some unique Australian wildlife.
Leave time to wander the waterfront of Hamilton Island's famous Front Street and Marina Village taking in the sights, visiting the galleries, doing some shopping and of course enjoying either a two course multi choice lunch at Manta Ray Cafe.
The Whitehaven segment of your day is a leisurely half day scenic cruise to this magnificent beach. Your cruise vessel has expansive seating areas inside and out. Your friendly skipper will provide an informative commentary on the history and natural wonders of the area. Once at the beach, sink your toes into the fine white silica sands of Whitehaven and enjoy the warm crystal clear waters. This is Mother Nature at her best. Back on the vessel, sit back, breathe in the sea air, sip a wine or beer and marvel at the 74 Island Wonders of the Whitsundays.
Your day cruise vessel has air conditioned interior saloons and seating areas outside. It also has a boarding ramp allowing direct easy access on and off the beach. On the cruise out to Whitehaven, you'll enjoy an informative commentary.
