Cruise Whitsundays is an exciting, innovative and experienced maritime operator, based in Airlie Beach. We know how lucky we are to call the Whitsundays home, and work hard to showcase the highlights of this incredible region to visitors from around the world.
Along with our sublime natural environment, our upbeat and helpful staff are our greatest asset. We’re trained to adhere to strict safety standards onboard our vessels, but also know how to have fun – our guests’ safety and enjoyment are our top priorities.
Cruise Whitsundays operates a fantastic selection of island transfers, day cruises and activities throughout the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef. Day cruises include visits to the reef, gorgeous Hamilton Island, famous Whitehaven Beach and full-day sailing adventures. We also offer Reefsleep – a fabulous night under the stars on the outer Great Barrier Reef.
Cruise Whitsundays is part of the Journey Beyond Group – a national business focused on bringing Australia’s most iconic experiences to life. The organisation is Australian-owned, has a growing national footprint, and is fast positioning itself as one of the largest experiential tourism businesses in the country.
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.
