Once we have spent some photo time here it’s time to go back down to the beach and re-board our high speed boat to take a short ride to South Whitehaven Beach for a swim and chillax time on the white silica sands.

Next up we head to the North end of Hook Island or Border Island for some in water time exploring the coral reefs and spotting the array of colourful marine life.

Sample Itinerary

Leaving Coral Sea Marina, we cross Pioneer Bay, the Whitsunday Passage and Hook Pass before we arrive at Tongue Bay for a walk to the famous Hill Inlet Lookout.

After time spent taking in the spectacular views, you will jump back on board Whitsunday Bullet for a short trip to South Whitehaven for a swim and marvel at the white silica sands of the beach.

Then a thrilling ride to Hook Island or Border Island, the best location decided on the day, for Snorkelling and marine life viewing.

We will provide transfers to the nearest beach, and you can go for a snorkel at your leisure or simply top up the tan.

For guests snorkelling, our small tender will be available to assist guests and ensure everyone is safe and having a great time.

Mid-afternoon we leave the islands for the voyage back to Coral Sea Marina.

The sun should be starting to lower on the western horizon so time for some great photos.

Arriving back to Coral Sea Marina around 4:30 pm and transfers back to local accommodation.

Whitsunday Bullet's itinerary will vary based on the tide and prevailing weather conditions.

We plan the daily itinerary around the high tides at Tongue Bay for ease of access for guests to the Hill Inlet Lookout walk and also consider the best snorkelling location based on the winds and likely visibility.

Some days the itinerary is reversed, starting in the morning at the north end of the Whitsundays and then heading to Whitehaven Beach in the afternoon.

If the weather changes and strong winds come in the Captain may change the itinerary for the safety and well-being of guests, crew and the vessel during the day.
