Why Visit Hook Island

The Whitsunday Islands are located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and are made up of 74 tropical islands. There’s so much to explore, from beaches to coral reefs and incredible wildlife. The best way to make the most of your trip is to go sailing around the Whitsundays. A sailing tour can be full of adventure, visiting some of the best sights in the Whitsundays, including Hook Island.

Hook Island is part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park and is almost uninhabited. This rugged island is an exciting place to visit while sailing around the Whitsundays and is often included as part of sailing and snorkelling tours of the area. Hook Island provides some incredible natural sights and is home to many of the best snorkelling and scuba diving locations in the Whitsunday Islands. It is the second largest island in the Cumberland group and has some beautiful sheltered bays and inlets, including the two fjord-like recesses named Nara and Macona Inlets.

While you are sailing around the Whitsundays, stop at Hook Island for some snorkelling. Along with the beautiful reef fish of the Great Barrier Reef, you might discover turtles, manta rays, and even dolphins. Explore the coves as you travel on a luxury catamaran, and sail to the beautiful Butterfly Bay along the north coast, where you can find a world of butterflies inhabiting the island. Hook Island is also home to gorgeous Manta Ray Bay, yet another great snorkelling and scuba diving location. Some tours may take you to the end of the Nara inlet, where you can find a fresh water rock pool and waterfall, depending on the weather. Take a walk to the Ngaro cultural site and explore the ancient rock wall paintings of the Ngaro Aboriginal people.
