Example itinerary around the Whitsundays - To maximize your time at Whitehaven Beach, the Captain may head North first towards Hook Island for snorkeling, before going to Whitsunday Island early afternoon. Airlie Beach Pickups and Courtesy Bus Transfers Between 8:20am and 8:50am we will send a bus to pick you up from your local accommodation, and transfer you to Abell Point Marina to meet the Whitsunday Bullet crew for a 9:30am departure. Don't forget to grab that early morning coffee before pickup! Tongue Bay, the Hill Inlet Lookout & Whitehaven Beach Leaving Abell Point marina, we cross Pioneer Bay, the Whitsunday Passage and Hook Pass before we arrive at Tongue Bay for a walk to the famous Hill Inlet Lookout.
After time spent taking in the spectacular views, you will jump back on board Whitsunday Bullet for the short trip to South Whitehaven for a swim and to marvel at the white silica sands of the beach. Stand Up Paddle Boards will be available for guests to enjoy! Whitehaven Beach is 98% pure white silica sand, with crystal clear water and tropical sun, be sure to bring your camera for some amazing photos! Hook Island, Border Island, Snorkelling Then a thrilling ride to the north end of Hook Island or Border Island, the best location decided on the day, for Snorkelling and marine life viewing. We will provide transfers to the nearest beach, and you can go for a snorkel at your leisure or simply top up the tan. For guests snorkelling, our small tender will be available to assist guests and ensure everyone is safe and having a great time. Mid afternoon we leave the islands for the voyage back to Abell Point Marina.
The sun should be starting to lower on the western horizon so time for some great photos. Arriving back to Abell Point Marina around 5:00pm and transfers back to local accommodation. Whitsunday Bullets itinerary will vary based on the tide and prevailing weather conditions. We plan the daily itinerary around the high tides at Tongue Bay for ease of access for guests to the Hill Inlet Lookout walk and also considering the best snorkelling location based on the winds and likely visibility. Some days the itinerary is reversed, starting in the morning at the north end of the Whitsundays and then heading to Whitehaven Beach in the afternoon. If the weather changes and strong winds come in the Captain may change the itinerary for the safety and well being of guests, crew and the vessel during the day.
