Pristine, pure, perfect – the silica sand here is dazzlingly white, washed in on the tide over thousands of years. Located on the largest island in The Whitsundays, Whitehaven Beach offers up 7km of shore to explore – swim, snorkel, laze on the sand or even take a hike through the forest to an ocean lookout or secret swimming spot: your time here can be as energetic or relaxed as you’d like it to be. Don’t miss the walk to the spectacular viewpoint over Hill Inlet at Whitehaven’s northern end, where a swirl of white sand and turquoise water fuse to create a stunning blend of colours.
Cruise Whitsundays runs a range of full and half-day cruises to Whitehaven Beach.
The health, safety and well-being of both our guests and staff remain our number one priority. As a result, Cruise Whitsundays has continued to closely monitor the developments and advice provided around COVID-19.
Following further advice received, together with several new restrictions initiated by various governments (including some states closing their borders and others seeking to restrict non-essential travel and activities), we have today announced the temporary suspension of all our services.
At this stage, all Cruise Whitsundays accommodation, tours and experiences will be suspended until 31 May 2020 and we will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves. Our resort connection services will continue to run at a limited frequency for authorised personnel until further notice.
We recognise that this will be incredibly disappointing news for guests with bookings between now and 31 May, but trust you will understand our decision.
All guests with bookings through to 31 May 2020 will be provided with a credit and our team will assist them to re-book their travel for a later date.
We thank our guests for their understanding and look forward to being able to deliver unforgettable experiences following the recommencement of our services.
