Airlie Beach snorkel Tour and high speed boat tour to Whitehaven Beach, simply great value for money and perfect for families, couples or groups of friends to enjoy. We leave early and the skipper decides on the day where our first arrival destination lies, Hook Island or Whitehaven Beach.
Our free coach pickups commence in Airlie Beach from 7.20am onwards for our 8.30am boat departure from Coral Sea Resort Marina (formally Abell Point Marina).
Tickets are collected and guests settle in for the high speed ride out across the wonderful Great Barrier Reef in Australia towards Whitehaven Beach and Hook Island for a day of snorkelling, hiking and stand up paddle boarding.
There are not too many 1 day tours to Whitehaven Beach and ours has to be one of the best value tours you will find with lot’s of inclusions and lots of fun.
Our 1 day Great Barrier Reef tours from Airlie Beach also cater for families.
We shoot across Pioneer Bay, the Whitsunday Passage and Hook Pass before we land at Tongue Bay for a guided hike thru the bush up to the Hill Inlet Lookout so you can see the swirling sands and Whitehaven Beach.
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.
By mid-afternoon it’s time to pack up the toys and head back to Airlie Beach for sundowner drinks.
We should reach the marina around 4.45pm and guests can jump back on the free coach rides back to their Airlie Beach accommodation.
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.
