Ultimate Whitehaven Beach Hike, Hill Inlet & Lookout

See the absolute best of the best!

Walk up to the Hill Inlet lookout, chill out on Whitehaven Beach and explore the beautiful Chance Bay. What an amazing day out. This day cruise allows you to spend more time exploring the wonders of Whitehaven Beach than any other cruise.

About Whitehaven

Whitehaven Beach is a definite 'must see' in the Whitsundays. The crystal clear waters and pristine white silica sand of Whitehaven stretch for over seven kilometres along Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsunday Islands National Park.

Whitehaven is nature at it's best. It is the most photographed beach in Australia and repeatedly voted one of the best beaches in the world.

Itinerary

Spend the whole day experiencing all the wonders of the magnificent Whitehaven Beach area. Indulge in the ultimate experience of Whitehaven Beach; from the Northern end exploring the spectacular Hill Inlet, to the Southern – swimming, hiking, sunbathing, soaking up the sun. No other day cruise offered allows you so much time to explore the wonders of Whitehaven Beach.

Begin your Whitehaven experience ashore at the Southern end where our crew will advise of the times for the day’s activities – including the trip to Hill Inlet at the Northern end of the beach and the walking tours. These will vary depending on conditions.

Enjoy a leisurely cruise, in our smaller Whitehaven based vessel, along the full length of Whitehaven and across Hill Inlet to the landing point. From here a guided walk following the path and history of the Whitsunday traditional owners, the Ngaro people, will lead you to the lookout and that picture postcard view! There are informative displays along the way that will provide an insight into the history, flora and stories of this picturesque area. A leisurely pace ensures all fitness levels are catered for, and guests take the time to enjoy this superb spiritual place.

On return to the Southern end, your guide will let you know what time the departure for the walk to Solway Circuit and Chance Bay.

The Guided Bushwalk to Solway Circuit Lookout (1.2km) is approximately 30 minutes walking at a steady pace, regularly stopping for commentary and picture perfect moments. Walk past impressive grasstrees, cycads and rock fern, with beautiful views over Solway Passage, Pentecost and Haslewood islands.

Once at Solway Circuit, there is the option to continue on the walk to beautiful Chance Bay (6km return) and is a leisurely 90 minutes return. Walk through Whitsunday Island’s forest and woodlands to a secluded beach at Chance Bay. On arrival, you’ll have time to have a swim before the return walk.

If you’re after the relaxing option; wander back to Whitehaven Beach to your own secluded stretch, laze on the beach or cool off in the azure waters for the afternoon.

Cruise staff will have water, beach shades and beach game items on shore for your use throughout the day. Toilet facilities are located close by. A delicious lunch is included for you to enjoy on the beach. Cold drinks will be available on the beach, just purchase your vouchers on the boat before disembarking. Full day guests will travel out on the morning half day cruise vessel and then return on the afternoon day vessel. A Cruise Whitsundays’ host/guide will remain with the full day guests throughout the day and can provide informative commentary. Your day cruise vessel has air conditioned interior saloons and seating areas outside.

Please note: To keep Whitehaven Beach pristine and untouched there are no shops, cafes and only limited toilet facilities. Snacks are available for purchase on board. Please prepare accordingly. Cruise Whitsundays is enhancing its products with additional experiences in place of the usual snorkelling activity.

Whitehaven Beach & Hamilton Island - Full Day Cruise

Two iconic destinations

Cruise through the magnificent Whitsunday islands to Whitehaven Beach and Hamilton Island. Step ashore and explore at each island for a day out that will be the highlight of your holiday!

About Whitehaven Beach & Hamilton Island

Whitehaven and Hamilton are two of the Whitsundays - and Australia's - most well known spots. They're famous for good reason... take this day cruise and find out for yourself why they're such popular places to visit! Here's a clue: jaw-dropping scenery and everything an Aussie island resort could offer.

Itinerary

Your cruise will take you from Port of Airlie onto either Hamilton Island or Whitehaven Beach. There you'll spend the morning before re-boarding the vessel to cruise onto whichever destination you're still to visit. 

At Hamilton Island, you might like to jump on a shuttle bus and tour around the island. The shuttles circuit the island all day stopping at key attractions, scenic points and resorts. So hop on and off as you please. There is a generous choice of swimming pools, including the Main Pool with its swim-up bar or hit the long sandy curve of Catseye Beach for seaside fun.

Leave time to wander the waterfront of Hamilton Island's famous Front Street and Marina Village taking in the sights, visiting the galleries, doing some shopping and of course enjoying either a pub lunch at Marina Tavern or a two course multi choice lunch at Manta Ray Cafe.

The Whitehaven segment of your day is a leisurely half day scenic cruise to this magnificent beach. Your cruise vessel has expansive seating areas inside and out. Your friendly skipper will provide an informative commentary on the history and natural wonders of the area. Once at the beach, sink your toes into the fine white silica sands of Whitehaven and enjoy the warm crystal clear waters. This is Mother Nature at her best. Back on the vessel, sit back, breathe in the sea air, sip a wine or beer and marvel at the 74 Island Wonders of the Whitsundays.

The cruise vessel

Your day cruise vessel has air conditioned interior saloons and seating areas outside. It also has a boarding ramp allowing direct easy access on and off the beach. On the cruise out to Whitehaven, you'll enjoy an informative commentary.

Food & Drink

Enjoy either a pub lunch at Marina Tavern OR a Mediterranean style menu at Manta Ray Café. Both restaurants have beautiful views over Hamilton Island Marina & offer a relaxed, family friendly setting. Drinks are available in fun laid back bars at both venues (Additional charge)

Marina Tavern – Cruise Whitsundays Menu

Manta Ray – Cruise Whitsundays Menu

NOTE: The Manta Ray Cafe lunch is only available on the cruise which visits Whitehaven in the morning and Hamilton in the afternoon.
