If you're planning a trip to the Whitsunday Islands, you want to make sure your Whitsunday Cruise includes all the best locations. So what are best sights that you just can't miss?
A classic must-see on any Whitsunday cruise is the beautiful Whitehaven Beach. The flawless silica sands of this seven kilometre stretch on Whitsunday Island will take your breath away. Whitehaven Beach has been recognised globally, winning awards including The Best Beach in Australia and one of the Top 3 Beaches in the World. Don’t miss out on your chance to visit this iconic location as part of our Whitsunday cruise.
Hill Inlet Lookout
Located on the Northern end of Whitehaven Beach is Hill Inlet. The best view can be seen via a short walk from the lookout on Tongue Point. One of the most eye catching sights in the Whitsunday Islands, Hill Inlet is only visited by some Whitsunday cruise companies, so make sure you don’t miss out when you book your Whitsunday Islands holiday.
Once you have enjoyed the sights and sand of Whitehaven Beach, it’s time to put on your snorkel gear and check out the underwater attractions of Hook Island. This is one of the top scuba diving locations in Australia, with beautiful fringing reefs and intricate coral.
On the Northern side of Hook Island is Luncheon Bay. This sheltered Bay is ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving, with easy beach access for beginner divers, as well as great swim-throughs for more advanced adventurers. As you explore the corals, you might even spot a turtle feeding on the reef!
Blue Pearl Bay
Another great snorkelling and scuba diving location in the Whitsunday Islands is Blue Pearl Bay. Located on the North-Western side of Hayman Island, Blue Pearl Bay is the perfect spot to feed some of the fishy locals before exploring some canyons and caves. Dive directly from your boat and discover pristine coral, including gorgonian fans. Don’t forget to say hello to the huge Maori Wrasse that live here!
