Attraction details
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.

We made that trip the first time a long time ago. We enjoyed it a lot and have been wondering if this would be that much fun again. And what shoud I say... it was great. We had our daughter with us and she also was very excited about the Trip.
I only can highly recommend to choose Whitehaven Express for the tour to the wihte sundays.
I hope we come back in a couple of years and see the young Captian doing the same thing his dad does.
Cheers Capt`n Dan, best wishes from Germany

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.

Ahoy
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.
