Airlie Beach to Whitehaven Beach

Whitehaven Xpress offers you a most memorable day tour. Showcasing the two most iconic Whitsunday destinations – Whitehaven Beach & Hill Inlet for the longest time.

Captained by local brothers Dan or Shane, the personal service across the team is obvious from your complimentary pick up by a member of our family.

The tour departs from Airlie Beach before cruising at 20 knots passing island resorts and several Whitsunday islands. Interesting commentary along the way. Imagine then enjoying 5 hours at Whitehaven Beach & Hill Inlet.

Spend your time at Whitehaven Beach to swim, sunbathe, chill in the shade or take an optional guided hike to the new Whitehaven Lookout.

Also fully appreciate Hill Inlet Lookout and the swirling sands below without rushing to cram in another activity!

Lunch is the best of all the day tours with a proper Aussie Beach BBQ. No packaged quiches or limp salads for our guests! All food and dietary requirements can be catered for.

Whitehaven Xpress is a purpose built vessel offering comfortable and dry seating options, toilets and a bar service. Most suitable for all ages from infants, children, students, families and our seniors especially.

Whitehaven Xpress is family owned and operated and has been conducting Whitehaven Beach Tours since 1989!

We would love for you to join us for one of the best experiences to Whitehaven Beach & Hill Inlet. #HolidayHereThisYear

Why Choose Whitehaven Xpress?

+ Hill Inlet Lookout

Hill Inlet – North Whitehaven Beach is perhaps the most recognised image promoting The Whitsundays – Heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Whitehaven Xpress has scheduled more time for you than all other Whitehaven Beach Tours from Airlie Beach, so you can truly take your time and relax whilst exploring Hill Inlet.

Guided by one of our friendly local eco-hosts Braden or Jess, you will be entertained and treated with unique local stories. Their knowledge and caring nature is unsurpassed as you enjoy 2 hours at Hill Inlet. 

Meaning you will appreciate more time at the lookout than all other groups passing by in a hurry, and then have the opportunity to spend time down at beach level. The beach is the swirling sands you see amazing pictures of from the lookout. Perhaps take a quick dip or selfie at the “insta-tree”!

Hill Inlet is located just to the North of Whitehaven Beach and likewise located on Whitsunday Island. In fact Hill Inlet separates both beaches. The cruise is about 10-15 minutes to or from the Southern end of Whitehaven Beach where we cook the Aussie Beach BBQ. 

#HolidayHereThisYear and support our small family business. Bring you infants, your kids your mums and dads. We will take great care of you and your family – guaranteed.

+ Whitehaven Beach BBQ

Finally, the BBQ lunch, Whitehaven Xpress is famous for the Whitehaven Beach BBQ. We use the freshest local ingredients, take great care in the food preparation and serve on proper plates with proper knives and forks. 

Capt Dan has been cooking the BBQ on Whitehaven Beach for over 30 years now! Capt Shane for about 10 years! Both are considered Capt Cook’s!

The menu is tasty prime tender steaks cooked to your liking, sausages, chilli rissoles and various salads right on Whitehaven Beach. Generous, plentiful and delicious, many consider this lunch as one of the best in the Whitsundays.

The Whitehaven Beach BBQ also proudly caters for all dietary requirements, Vegans, DF, GF etc. The cuisine is enhanced further with home-made Vegetarian burgers and locally line caught fish. Be sure to request at time of booking though.

The crew also carries a heavy iced box of refreshments to the beach for your enjoyment! 

How is all this possible, our very own kitchen brigade prepares the food in our own licensed food premises, the very morning of your day trip! Guaranteeing quality and quantity.

I guess the point is we believe the food you eat on holidays is a very important part of your overall experience! See our dining recommendations
