Lady Enid Sailing

Lady Enid recreates that classic age of yachting enjoyed in the 1960’s when sailing was more about elegance and chic than corporate sponsorship and carbon fibre.

The experience of sailing on this beautiful and rare classic Australian yacht gives as much to the day as the the destination. Become involved as much or as little as you like, help set sails, take a turn on the helm or lean back and relax with your favourite book, listen to music or simply daydream and be beguiled at the uninterrupted beauty of the Whitsunday Islands.


Air Whitsunday Seaplanes - Whitsundays

ABOUT AIR WHITSUNDAY

Air Whitsunday has evolved since its conception back in 1973 - with the energy and enthusiasm generated by Kevin and Sue Bowe – to provide an unsurpassed seaplane service to the region.
We have built upon our very beginning`s – still with the same intention - of providing you the opportunity to glimpse the enormity of the Great Barrier Reef; stretching over a curved horizon; to the glistening white silica sands of the famous Whitehaven Beach - all from the ultimate perspective of seaplane comfort.

Over the history of our 37 years trading we have been a growing, changing entity with a focus that has remained steadfast in providing specifically tailored scenic flights and Reef experience tours that take full advantage of this stunning area.

The discovery of “Heart Reef” in 1975 (now a Whitsunday feature of the international tourism market) by one of Air Whitsunday`s very own pilots has provided a focal point to our popular scenic flights and showcases the diversity of the Great Barrier Reef. Aptly the Heart Reef is a favourite for brochure shots and other colour promotional material for the Whitsundays.

What makes your seaplane experience with us so unique is the ability to provide – YOU – our guest,  with some of the most breathtaking and memorable visuals provided by ‘Mother Nature’ from a bird`s eye perspective.

Cruise Whitsundays - Island Escape Day Cruises

Island Escapes

Every visitor to the Whitsundays simply must step ashore at one of the area's 74 sub-tropical islands. Cruise Whitsundays offer a number of day cruises to fun-filled, family-friendly Daydream Island & the famous island that really does have it all: Hamilton.


Hamilton Island Nature Escape - Full Day Cruise 

Go wild on Hamilton Island

Australian bush and wildlife is so different to anywhere else in the world. This day cruise let's you go wild on Hamilton Island, taking in lovely sea vistas as you explore. Cruise azure waters of the Whitsundays, check out true Aussie bush and wildlife, and enjoy spectacular vistas! This day cruise is great for all ages and the whole family!

Hamilton Island's wild side

Hamilton Island is known the world over as fun tropical holiday spot with sandy coves and underwater treasures to explore. Not so widely appreciated is that seventy percent of the island is untouched native bushland with pristine views, bush trails and fascinating wildlife. Hamilton Island is home to wallabies and goannas, sea eagles, kites, ospreys, sulphur-crested cockatoos and kookaburras.  

Itinerary

Your day starts with cruising through the scenically splendid Whitsunday Islands, taking the Whitsunday Passage to Daydream Island, and then you head on past North and South Molle Islands to Hamilton. 

Having arrived at Hamilton Island - and having worked up an appetite - it's time for breakfast with the koalas at WILD LIFE Hamilton Island's Koala Café.

If cuddling a koala is your thing, here's where to do it. This is one of only a few places in the world where you can hug one of these cuties!  After breakfast you might like to visit the WILD LIFE park*. Here is also the chance to get up close with many of Australia's other iconic animals such as kangaroos, a range of marsupials, snakes, lizards and even a crocodile.  Park guides are happy to tell you all about the wildlife that makes its home in the Hamilton Island bush.

Next take the hike either up Passage Peak, Southeast Head Trail or One Tree Hill. They all have in common fantastic views and a little sweat -just how much is up to you!

*Entry to WILD LIFE park Hamilton Island not included in cruise price.

Passage Peak

Starting on the Scenic Trail and connecting with the Saddle Trail, Passage Peak is a challenging but rewarding climb up 2,650 metres of bush track and rocky outcrops. The dazzling panoramic out across Hamilton Island and its island neighbours makes the feat worthwhile.

If you need a stop half-way up, there's a picnic table at the Hill Top Viewing area where the views to the north and south are impressive - and an inspiration to continue to the summit.  

Passage Peak hiking time is 90 minutes round trip and there's a detailed audio tour available when you download the Hamilton Island app.

South East Head Trail

Winding its way to the lofty height of 4,000 metres, South East Head Trail is a 120-minute walking tour. Starting at the Palm Valley entrance into the park, this nature walk takes you through dense bush, where native grasstrees stud the landscape, before moving on past exposed rocky features and sharp cliffs. Views of the nearby Lindeman Island group are picture-postcard. If you're an experienced hiker with a taste for more, you can return to Hamilton Island Marina via the Valley Trail and Escape Beach.

One Tree Hill

Just 20 minutes uphill from Hamilton Island Marina, One Tree Hill is a favourite spot for views down through the Whitsunday Passage. Easy! 

Exploring Hamilton Island on foot, and at your own pace on the Cruise Whitsundays Hamilton Island Nature Escape is a great way to discover its natural beauty. 

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.

Food & Drink

Breakfast with the Koalas at Koala Cafe and for lunch, we'll pack a picnic for you to enjoy at one of the island's scenic picnic spots! Or you can lunch at the Marina Tavern on the water front. It's your choice. Note: meals are not included for infants.

Daydream Island Resort and Spa is one of the premier resorts in the Whitsunday Islands. It's tiny in size and you'll find it no trouble to explore the whole island.

It has all the facilities of an island resort and then some! Set around the swimming pool is a bakery, watersports, shop and souvenir boutique. There are tennis courts, a children's playground and the fantastic 'Living Reef' Coral Lagoon filled with colourful coral and fish life. Look out for the fantastic Marine Biologist presentation at shark and stingray feeding time!

There's lots of room to laze away the day pool side, on the lawns or adjacent beach. Take a swim, stroll along Sunset Beach or see wallabies and endless bird-life on the rainforest walk. The 'Around Australia' mini-golf course has to be the best in the world - definitely not just for the kids!

Air Whitsunday Seaplanes - Whitsundays

ABOUT AIR WHITSUNDAY

Air Whitsunday has evolved since its conception back in 1973 - with the energy and enthusiasm generated by Kevin and Sue Bowe – to provide an unsurpassed seaplane service to the region.
We have built upon our very beginning`s – still with the same intention - of providing you the opportunity to glimpse the enormity of the Great Barrier Reef; stretching over a curved horizon; to the glistening white silica sands of the famous Whitehaven Beach - all from the ultimate perspective of seaplane comfort.

Over the history of our 37 years trading we have been a growing, changing entity with a focus that has remained steadfast in providing specifically tailored scenic flights and Reef experience tours that take full advantage of this stunning area.

The discovery of “Heart Reef” in 1975 (now a Whitsunday feature of the international tourism market) by one of Air Whitsunday`s very own pilots has provided a focal point to our popular scenic flights and showcases the diversity of the Great Barrier Reef. Aptly the Heart Reef is a favourite for brochure shots and other colour promotional material for the Whitsundays.

What makes your seaplane experience with us so unique is the ability to provide – YOU – our guest,  with some of the most breathtaking and memorable visuals provided by ‘Mother Nature’ from a bird`s eye perspective.

Hamilton Island Nature Escape - Full Day Cruise 

Go wild on Hamilton Island

Australian bush and wildlife is so different to anywhere else in the world. This day cruise let's you go wild on Hamilton Island, taking in lovely sea vistas as you explore. Cruise azure waters of the Whitsundays, check out true Aussie bush and wildlife, and enjoy spectacular vistas! This day cruise is great for all ages and the whole family!

Hamilton Island's wild side

Hamilton Island is known the world over as fun tropical holiday spot with sandy coves and underwater treasures to explore. Not so widely appreciated is that seventy percent of the island is untouched native bushland with pristine views, bush trails and fascinating wildlife. Hamilton Island is home to wallabies and goannas, sea eagles, kites, ospreys, sulphur-crested cockatoos and kookaburras.  

Itinerary

Your day starts with cruising through the scenically splendid Whitsunday Islands, taking the Whitsunday Passage to Daydream Island, and then you head on past North and South Molle Islands to Hamilton. 

Having arrived at Hamilton Island - and having worked up an appetite - it's time for breakfast with the koalas at WILD LIFE Hamilton Island's Koala Café.

If cuddling a koala is your thing, here's where to do it. This is one of only a few places in the world where you can hug one of these cuties!  After breakfast you might like to visit the WILD LIFE park*. Here is also the chance to get up close with many of Australia's other iconic animals such as kangaroos, a range of marsupials, snakes, lizards and even a crocodile.  Park guides are happy to tell you all about the wildlife that makes its home in the Hamilton Island bush.

Next take the hike either up Passage Peak, Southeast Head Trail or One Tree Hill. They all have in common fantastic views and a little sweat -just how much is up to you!

*Entry to WILD LIFE park Hamilton Island not included in cruise price.

Passage Peak

Starting on the Scenic Trail and connecting with the Saddle Trail, Passage Peak is a challenging but rewarding climb up 2,650 metres of bush track and rocky outcrops. The dazzling panoramic out across Hamilton Island and its island neighbours makes the feat worthwhile.

If you need a stop half-way up, there's a picnic table at the Hill Top Viewing area where the views to the north and south are impressive - and an inspiration to continue to the summit.  

Passage Peak hiking time is 90 minutes round trip and there's a detailed audio tour available when you download the Hamilton Island app.

South East Head Trail

Winding its way to the lofty height of 4,000 metres, South East Head Trail is a 120-minute walking tour. Starting at the Palm Valley entrance into the park, this nature walk takes you through dense bush, where native grasstrees stud the landscape, before moving on past exposed rocky features and sharp cliffs. Views of the nearby Lindeman Island group are picture-postcard. If you're an experienced hiker with a taste for more, you can return to Hamilton Island Marina via the Valley Trail and Escape Beach.

One Tree Hill

Just 20 minutes uphill from Hamilton Island Marina, One Tree Hill is a favourite spot for views down through the Whitsunday Passage. Easy! 

Exploring Hamilton Island on foot, and at your own pace on the Cruise Whitsundays Hamilton Island Nature Escape is a great way to discover its natural beauty. 

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.

Food & Drink

Breakfast with the Koalas at Koala Cafe and for lunch, we'll pack a picnic for you to enjoy at one of the island's scenic picnic spots! Or you can lunch at the Marina Tavern on the water front. It's your choice. Note: meals are not included for infants.
