Amazing scenery

We loved going to Whitehaven Beach and spending some time there. Then we took a smaller boat (note that the speed can be high) to go to the other side of the beach for the Hill Inlet walk. We had taken this tour for this specific option and were not disappointed - really worth it to see the inlet and the beach from above ! Then we went back to the beach, the skipper was passionated about the area and gave us information about surrounding islands. Only advice would be to give people more time to eat (morning cakes / lunch were served at the last minute before disembarking / doing the Hill Inlet walk). Type of visit : family (adults)

It was wonderful trip. The ferry is very comfortable,stuff more than friendly and whitehaven beach is amazing. Just be sure that your trip includes the visit of Hill inlet, which was the most exciting part of the trip.

Wish we could have spent more time on the other side of the beach where you can see the swirling sands, but overall was good. Great BBQ lunch, but would have been nice to include at least one drink on the boat.

Wouldn't fault the trip, excluding that we were in a heat wave. The air conditioned catamaran was comfortable, cool and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and clear with rules etc. Whitehaven beach was truly spectacular. I hope the dry finishes soon and the rains come!

We had a super trip over to Whitehaven Beach - everything was organised so well. The Hill Inlet Walk was also very interesting with superb views - the unfortunate thing was the weather whilst we were at the Hill Inlet Walk - it poured with rain but once we returned to Whitehaven Beach the weather was beautiful. The packed lunch was also extremely good. Our tour guides were also exceptionally good

We took the departure from Hamilton...

We took the departure from Hamilton Island, only two minutes from our apartment. The Cruise Whitsundays boat is quite large - this is definitely not a small group experience, and you also share the main vessel with the half-day cruise passengers. But, that means it's an enclosed air conditioned vessel with a bar onboard. Whitehaven Beach itself is incredible, despite the damage from the cyclone. The day we went was overcast and had a few showers, but the location on the beach where we landed is well sheltered and the Cruise Whitsundays crew have gazebos to hide under if needed. They also provide beach toys, like buckets and spades, frisbees, footballs, etc. The Hill Inlet walk part is limited to groups of around 12. We travelled in a smaller vessel up the coast and got dropped off on a different beach to make our way up to the outlook. This was definitely worth the extra effort! The view is incredible. The provided cold lunch pack is a little small, but was tasty. There was also an extra optional walk to Chance Bay - for this, the same smaller vessel takes you around the island and drops you off for a 3.6 km walk back to Whitehaven. Again, well worth it. All in all, this was a fantastic tour.

Really enjoyed the day trip. Snorkelling was good and views from Hill Inlet spectacular. Whitehaven is a lovely beach but just remember there is nothing else there.

Probably the most beautiful day trip I went on. Nick was an excellent guide. I loved the Hill Inlet Lookout and I am so glad I booked this tour. Half a day would have been way too short. Whitehaven Beach is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen.
