Cruise Whitsundays

Cruise Whitsundays is a new day cruise operator based in Airlie Beach, the Whitsundays, Queensland. You’ll travel on modern vessels that have been custom designed to provide passenger comfort and maximum enjoyment. You’ll meet the friendly crew who have a passion for the Whitsundays and will enhance your Cruise Whitsundays experience.

The day cruise range features trips to Whitsunday icons the Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven Beach. To get there you’ll cruise on a launch or sail on a high speed catamaran. You’ll have the opportunity to swim and snorkel in waters that average 25 degrees celsius. Hunger pains? Not with Cruise Whitsundays. Their day cruises are inclusive of morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

Cruise Whitsundays Day Cruises travel through the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, a World Heritage site. They have undertaken a self imposed Marine Environmental Plan to ensure their day cruises program does not damage the Great Barrier Reef’s fragile environment. Examples of this plan include a no touch policy through to the construction of a snorkelling and diving pontoon which is powered by dry cell batteries rather than a generator which eliminates noise pollution, fumes and the possibility of a fuel and oil spillage.

Day cruises depart daily from Airlie Beach and several Whitsunday Island resorts. For more information please contact Cruise Whitsundays.
