Owner description: Whitehaven Beach day tour from Airlie Beach with Whitehaven Xpress. A family operated full day trip with snorkeling, swimming, bush-walking and a Whitehaven Beach BBQ. Whitehaven Xpress offers a full day tour from Airlie Beach, including a Hill Inlet lookout walk, Snorkel or Glass bottom boat viewing and 2 hours on the Whitehaven Beach. Whilst spending the most amount of time on the actual Whitehaven Beach, we provide you with a fabulous Aussie beach BBQ including 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 our homeward journey a platter of cheese and biscuits is served. Departs daily at 9 am from Abell Point Marina and returns approx. 5pm with courtesy van pickup. The daytrip is family operated with Terry, Jill, Captain Dan, and Captain Shane providing a unique personal service.

Having already seen photos on Trip Advisor I already had high expectations to the trip.
Captain Dan and his team did not let us down. Great service all round. The ONLY trip to be allowed to BBQ on Whitehaven Beach and so much food, meat, salad and fruit. You can have your rump steak cooked to order, so not ‘one size fits all’... swim and snorkelling excellent, but the views and photos from the lookout point...simply unbelievable....once again, well done Captain Dan and the team...brilliant

My husband and I were scheduled to take the Whitehaven Beach tour but I received an email 1 day before the tour that it was going to be cancelled because of maintenance required on the boat. We had to scramble to find another touring company with availability so that our time spent in Whitsunday Islands was not a waste.

We gave you a days notice so you could book another tour, not to get all panicky.
Anyway if you think its worth a 1 star so be it.

Great boat trip out to Whitehaven beach for a swim and BBQ. Sand and water beautiful.
Then a walk to the lookout for a fantastic view of the shifting sands. And lastly snorkelling in another area of the Whitsunday.
