"Perfect!" by Neun Song
This tour is perfect for relax. The Whitehaven beach looks like a paradise. The booking service by Airlie Beach Online was very helpful . I recomend.
"Outstanding tour in all respects" by Helen Hazlewood
This tour was an absolute delight in all respects. The staff were informative and friendly, especially Braydon, who was very entertaining! We had just the right amount of time doing each activity. I braved snorkelling for the first time and loved it! Seeing the coral and tropical fish close up was truly magical. The barbecue lunch was outstanding, enjoyed with the stunning backdrop of Whitehaven Beach. The walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout was easier than expected, and the views were just spectacular. I was so pleased that we had chosen Whitehaven Xpress for the tour, as it was a small enough group to be really personal. This was an outstanding day - the absolute highlight of our five days in Airlie Beach!
"Great Day in the Whitsundays" by Daria
Really amazing day with a friendly crew. Everything was thought through, and we really enjoyed all aspects of the tour. We also really appreciated the smaller size of the boat, and the fact that we had cover against the wind - it can get a little bit chilly on the water in June. Great recommendation from Cathy from Airlie Beach Online.
