This 2 day 2 night tour departs from Airlie Beach, and you’ll have an awesome few days sailing through the Whitsunday islands full of so many activities including a waterslide, snorkelling and a diving board to show off your skills and give Tom Daley a run for his money! You’ll see all of the top sites and of course a key highlight of the trip is going to the most instagrammable beach in the world – Whitehaven Beach, this place is the definition of INCREDIBLE and you’ll be wowed at how stunning it is in real life. You’ll have plenty of time to chill out at Whitehaven, enjoy the 100% silica sand and crystal clear water, look out for the manta rays and your crew will take you on a guided bush walk up to hill inlet lookout where you will see ‘THE’ view << trust us this ones a beautyyyyyyy.

You’ll have the opportunity to snorkel the reef and the team will take you to the best diving and snorkelling around! Look for some amazing species of fish and marine life including the parrot fish, bat fish, cuttlefish, giant clams and clownfish. Not into snorkelling? No worries! There are plenty of other activities such as the waterslide, paddleboards and the diving platform, or if you fancy some chill time, relax on the deck with a nice cold drink {not a bad life eyy!}…

We guarantee that you’ll have an amazing time on board the New Horizon, the crew are legends and will ensure that you’ll have the best time! Not only are they a great team but they’ll also keep you laughing for the whole 2 days, in the evening they’ll give you a talk about the history of the Whitsundays all whilst you all enjoy some drinks watching the sunset, listening to the perfect sunset vibe soundtrack. You’ll be looked after by the incredibly friendly crew and all of your meals are prepared and cooked for you by the onboard chef so you can kick back and relax. The evenings on the New Horizon
are full of fun and you’ll enjoy evenings with good food, drinks, drinking games {if you wish!} all whilst watching the stars and chilling on a boat in the middle of one of Australia’s most desirable locations. These guys like a sunrise as much as they love a sunset so you’ll be up early on day 2 to watch the beautiful sunrise whilst enjoying brekkie. {we’ve heard on some tours the crew wake you up with the Lion King soundtrack!}.
