Whitehaven Beach and stingrays
Most boat trips to the Whitsunday Islands and Whitehaven Beach depart from Airlie Beach on the mainland of Australia. Here you can stay a night or two and enjoy the cool backpacker life before setting out to sail for a few days.
On your cruise, you will go to Whitehaven Beach which is a definite must-see. The crystal clear sea, white sand and marine life will make anyone in awe. Whitehaven Beach stretches over seven kilometers on Whitsunday Island, which is the largest of 74 islands in the Whitsundays. When sailing in the Whitsunday Islands, you get the most beautiful scenery, relaxation and adventure at the same time.

Check if there is snorkeling equipment on the boat; otherwise you need to bring your own. There are many opportunities to jump in the water. We recommend you cruise the islands for at least a few days to get the full experience.
