Exploring the Whitsundays by boat is a magical experience that will stay with you forever. Expect seabirds hovering above your head, humpback whales breaching beside you and the golden sun shimmering across endless waters. From Whitsunday Coast Airport, where a salty sea breeze will hit your face as soon as you touch down, you’re a 30 minute shuttle
from Airlie Beach. Alternatively, Hamilton Island Airport’s arrival gate is a stone’s throw from the water and only a short ferry from the iconic white sands of Whitehaven beach. Each of these spots are excellent launching points to explore the islands by sea, with a range of options sure to satisfy all types of explorer. Whether you want to take it slow and watch for whales for days on end on a sailing boat
, zoom by on speedboats or jet-skis
, or try your hand at finding a beautiful tuna or Red Emperor with a spot of fishing, we have activities available for every kind of sea-explorer and family.
