Itinerary:

Valid for 01APR17-31MAR19:
Board your Cruise Whitsundays vessel at Hamilton Island Marina to commence a full day Ultimate Whitehaven Beach Hike, Hill Inlet, Lookout tour. Travel aboard the day cruise catamaran vessel for the transfer to Whitehaven Beach. Indulge in the ultimate experience of Whitehaven Beach; from the Northern end exploring the spectacular Hill Inlet, to the Southern swimming, hiking, sunbathing, soaking up the sun. No other day cruise offered allows you so much time to explore the wonders of Whitehaven Beach! Begin your Whitehaven experience ashore at the Southern end where our crew will advise of the times for the day's activities including the trip to Hill Inlet at the Northern end of the beach and the walking tours. These will vary depending on conditions. Enjoy a leisurely cruise, in our smaller Whitehaven based vessel, along the full length of Whitehaven and across Hill Inlet to the landing point. From here a guided 30 minute walk (1.2km) following the path and history of the Whitsunday traditional owners, the Ngaro people, will lead you to the lookout and that picture postcard view! There are informative displays along the way that will provide an insight into the history, flora and stories of this picturesque area. A leisurely pace ensures all fitness levels are catered for, and guests take the time to enjoy this superb spiritual place. On return to the Southern end, your guide will let you know the departure time for the walk to Solway Circuit and  Chance Bay. The Guided Bushwalk to Solway Circuit Lookout (1.2km) is approximately 30 minutes walking at a leisurely pace and regularly stopping for commentary and picture perfect moments. Walk past impressive grasstrees, cycads and rock fern, with beautiful views over Solway Passage, Pentecost and Haslewood islands. Suitable for families and all ages. Once at Solway Circuit there is the option to hike to beautiful Chance Bay (6km return). Walking at a steady pace is a 90 minutes return. Hike through Whitsunday Island's forest and woodlands to a secluded beach at Chance Bay. Where you'll have time to have a swim before the return walk. Suitable for moderate fitness levels. If you're after the relaxing option; wander back to Whitehaven Beach to your own secluded stretch, laze on the beach or cool off in the azure waters for the afternoon. Cruise staff will have water, beach shades and beach game items on shore for your use throughout the day. Toilet facilities are located close by. A delicious lunch is included for you to enjoy on the beach. Cold drinks will be available on the beach, just purchase your vouchers on the boat before disembarking. A Cruise Whitsundays' host/guide will remain with you throughout the day and can provide informative commentary. Your day cruise vessel has air conditioned interior saloons, bar, toilets as well as seating areas outside. Cruise concludes at approximately 5.00pm, at Hamilton Island.
