Safe and easy access on and off the boat by use of stairs at the front means Whitsunday Bullet is suitable for all. The catamaran’s fantastic stability ensures a smooth calm ride.
Airlie Beach pickups and courtesy bus transfers are between 7:20 am and 8:00 am. The tour will send a bus to pick you up from your local accommodation and transfer you to Coral Sea Marina to meet the Whitsunday Bullet crew for an 8:30 am departure. Don't forget to grab that early morning coffee before pickup!
The first stop will take you to Tongue Bay where you'll find access to Hill Inlet Lookout and the famous sweeping views of Whitehaven Beach. Once you’ve walked the short bushwalk and taken in the spectacular views, it’s time to head to the sparkling waters of the inlet itself. After spending time on the northern end of the beach, the tour heads to the Southern-end of Whitehaven Beach. Here you can enjoy the expansive 7-km stretch of sand and a wide range of activities provided. Sunbathing, beachcombing, swimming, snorkelling, SUP-boarding, ball games, and more.
After a delicious lunch on board, the tour will travel to a snorkelling spot somewhere in the Northern end of the Whitsunday Islands. Your skipper, with their knowledge and experience behind them, will select the bay that will provide the clearest waters and most abundant marine life on the day. Jump in and meet the locals – spot bright colourful fish and maybe a turtle if you’re lucky! After exploring all that’s on offer in the Whitsundays, you’ll have one more chance to take in the scenery as you are driven back to the marina, arriving at around 16.30 pm.
This itinerary will vary based on the tide and prevailing weather conditions. The tour plans 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.
