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.

The trip was well organised and everything went as planned. All of the food was good, we loved the BBQ. The beach swimming was really welcome after sailing across and the water was clear and warm. We loved the stunning views at Hill Inlet. The snorkelling was good for the colourful fish and the coral was interesting if a little pale. I was given advice and support on how to use the snorkel which I found reassuring.

Loved Whitehaven Xpress. Staff are super fun and friendly and will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your day and get the best snorkelling spots. The view from the lookout and bbq are awesome. Will definitely visit again.
