Whitsundays Boat Cruises

We think there’s no better way to explore the Whitsundays than to take a relaxing and scenic boat cruise through the magnificent islands and reefs. There’s a whole host of options for you to choose from including day trips, bare boat and skippered charters.

There’s a range of day trips leaving the mainland and large resort islands so you can visit a few of the 74 Whitsunday Islands all in a day. Many of these cruises allow for you to snorkel at various reefs and include lunch and drinks.

Bare Boat charters are especially popular in the Whitsundays as you can be captain of  your own trip on your holiday. It allows visitors more freedom in their holiday as you can set sail to wherever you heart desires and wake up to sparkling azure oceans.
