Boarding your high speed RIB, depart Airlie Beach for an exhilarating ride into the spectacular Marine and Island National Parks of the Whitsundays.
After a short cruise through the islands, you’ll arrive at Whitehaven Beach, one of the largest of the region’s 74 islands. Here, you can enjoy around 2 hours of free time to relax on the warm sandy beach or take a guided nature walk.
During your time on Whitehaven Beach, a local style light buffet lunch will be served on the beach.
