Sit back, breathe in the sea air as you marvel at the 74 Island Wonders of the Whitsundays, starting with views of Passage Peak and the imposing Pentecost Island.
The waters of Solway Passage lead us to the world famous Whitehaven Beach, a definite ‘must see’ in the Whitsundays. The crystal clear aqua waters and pristine white silica sands stretch for over seven kilometres along Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays. Wander along the beach to your own secluded stretch, laze on the sand or cool off in the azure waters. It is Mother Nature at her best. Walk up to the Solway Lookout and get your own selfie against the most photographed beach in Australia and named ‘Queensland’s Most Beautiful Beach’.
Settle down on board, grab your favourite drink or some afternoon tea and get ready for your ride around the Whitsunday Islands as you make your way back to Port. The views of the Islands are breathtaking.
