Whitehaven Beach Half-Day Cruises

165 reviews
Even if you’ve got limited time in the Whitsundays, Whitehaven Beach is a must-see stretch of shore. Discover the white-sand paradise on a morning or afternoon cruise that provides a perfect introduction for first-time visitors. Beat the daytime heat in an air-conditioned catamaran, enjoy on-board tea, and take advantage of free time to swim and sunbathe one of Australia’s most beautiful beaches at your leisure.

From the lookout, the water is an amazingly beautiful shade of blue. The contrast between, sky, forest lined hills and the sea is lovely. Shute harbour itself is rather quiet now the main port is at Airlie. There is still a ferry there.

I last visited Shute Harbour many years ago. It has not changed a lot but it is improving with work going ahead at present. It is very low key and is still worth a visit.

Shute Harbour used to be the hub to the Whitsundays, now replaced by Airlie Beach. That said, there appears a lot of construction going on, so perhaps its worth re-visiting in a year or two

Took a drive to Shute Harbour which is all it was. Not a lot to see or be entertained by when one has the incredible area like Airlie Beach which is full of entertainment and also the Whitsunday islands just off shore.
