Owner description: This Whitehaven Beach Tour departs Airlie Beach daily. The BBQ lunch "Aussie" style by true-blue Australians on Whitehaven Beach is their Major difference! Also being a White Boat with indoor, outdoor and upstairs seating is a key difference. Whitehaven Xpress offers a full day tour from Airlie Beach to Whitehaven Beach with a minimum of 2hrs including a Hill Inlet lookout walk, Snorkel or Glass bottom boat viewing. The BBQ menu is steak, sausages, chilli burgers, salads and tropical fruits. (Vegetarians are catered for on request). The BBQ is prepared for your enjoyment under the shade of the trees while utilising the National Parks picnic tables. On the homeward journey they serve a cheese platter and crackers. Departs daily from Abell Point Marina, Airlie Beach and Returns approx. 5pm. Courtesy van pickup / dropoff included. This day trip is family owned & operated by Terry, Jill and their sons Captain Dan and Captain Shane. They are the longest running tour to Whitehaven Beach.

Ahoy Nick
I remember that day! Good news is the large turtle was not there the next day so happily moved on her merry way. It is breeding season so we know what she was about to do that afternoon, or perhaps she was looking for a good spot to nest and will return later.
Cheers, Capt Shane
