Touring Options

Maxi Ragamuffin Tour to Whitehaven Beach

Whitehaven Beach: Sixteen miles from the mainland is a place which has become one of the world’s most famous beaches. The water at Whitehaven is usually nothing less than crystal clear, so it’s a great spot to enjoy a swim in the warm tropical waters of the Whitsundays. A picnic lunch is served under the shade of the trees backing the beach, before sailing home again past some beautiful islands and spectacular scenery.

Maxi Ragamuffin Tour to Blue Pearl Bay

Blue Pearl Bay: A comfortable two hour sail from the mainland, Blue Pearl Bay is the site of some of Queensland’s most spectacular fringing reef. See it for yourself and snorkel or scuba dive amongst the beautiful coral and colourful tropical fish. After exploring the bay, a delicious buffet lunch is served on board before setting sail for the return leg via the Whitsunday Passage.
