Board your catamaran for a high speed catamaran journey through the protected Whitsunday Islands. Admire the beautiful serenity of your surroundings as you approach the lovely uninhabited island of Whitehaven. Your Captain will drop anchor a short distance from the island for you to wade ashore. Whitehaven Beach is a stunning 3½ mile stretch of pristine pure white silica sand and has been voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world.

You’ll have around 2 hours on this idyllic island to sunbathe on the stunning beach, stroll along the water’s edge and swim in the crystal clear water.

Afterwards, return to your catamaran and cruise back through the warm Whitsunday waters back to the port.
