The Whitsundays is located off the coast of Airlie Beach on the East Coast of Oz. The Whitsundays is made up of 74 tropical islands and is located between the mainland and the Great Barrier Reef which makes it PERFECT for snorkelling! The sailing trip includes a visit to the swirling sands of Hill Inlet and the world-famous Whitehaven beach (voted on numerous occasions as the world’s BEST beach).

If you are looking for a super social, Backpacker experience…with less of a party vibe than the Clipper then look no further than the Clipper’s sister boat – New Horizon.

Simply select the best date that suits your trip using the live calendar below. Please note that if your dates change we can change them FREE of charge, providing there is availability on your newly selected date.

Tour information:

Ready for the ultimate Whitsunday’s adventure! White sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and the iconic swirl of Hill Inlet & Whitehaven beach will have you making people at home VERY jealous. There are 74 islands within the Whitsundays and a sailing tour around these islands will give you the most amazing views and access to beaches and reef only accessible by boat! Ever wanted to party on a boat for 2 days and 2 nights, snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy beers under the stars and hang out on Australia’s number 1 beach? Booking the New Horizo with RatPack is the ONE!

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 8m 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 Instagram-able 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.

Snorkel at North Hook, 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 and the diving platform, or if you fancy some chill time, relax up on the massive sun deck on the beanbags with a nice cold drink {not a bad life!}.. There will plenty of other opportunities to see the local wildlife as there is a pod of dolphins who try and get in on the New Horizon action on 8/10 trips, there is even the opportunity to see humpbacks whales whilst they are migrating (July – Sept).

The New Horizo is an absolute legendary boat and if you are up for a lot of banter, day long bevvys, hilarious crew, and making unreal memories, this tour is perfect for you! You’ll be looked after by the incredibly friendly crew from the New Horizon team 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 east coast renowned, you’ll enjoy crazy nights with your New Horizon mates, the legends that form the crew all with a cold beer {or 5} whilst watching the stars and partying on a boat in the middle of one of Australia’s most desirable locations.

We love this trip because it’s everything we love about travelling, beers, banter and beautiful places, you’ll make memories that’ll last a lifetime from your time on the New Horizon and will have stories to tell for sure….

George of RatPack has been amazing! So so responsive and helpful in finding really good campers for great deals! We’ve booked camper vans for Australia and New Zealand through RatPack and the process couldn’t have been easier!

Fantastic experience. I was pretty overwhelmed with trying to sort things myself, and Anna just cleared the path for me. She was so patient and helpful, now we are all sorted and booked 24 hours later.

Amazing company that takes all the hassle out of booking a camper-van for your travels in Australia and NZ. Within 2 hours of speaking to Ben we’d found and booked the best option for us, for a cheaper price than we’d ever expected! If you’re looking to book a camper-van for NZ or Australia, RatPack should be the first people you speak to!

My Friend and I have just booked our van for our New Zealand trip in September. Ryan was amazing and could have not been more helpful. Ryan has made the process straight forward and extremely stress free. If it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t be taking a dream trip. Thankyou again

Ryan provided a speedy service and quotes and was at the other end of the phone to answer any questions I had. Would recommend.

I had an outstanding experience with RatPack Travel and George! The service was excellent and incredibly efficient, making my trip planning a breeze. George went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend RatPack Travel to anyone.

Great service and good price. Would have had to pay more if not for RatPack's great connections and swift operations. Gregg was super helpful and came back with good news on further discounts when booking in our campervan for our NZ trip! :)

George was super helpful and informative! Very excited for our west coast adventure

Ratpack travel ? Such a fabulous experience to book our campervan for Tassie trip later this year with these guys . Loved the WhatsApp communication with Mikey and George . They searched for best price for us and advised on vans that would suit our requirements. So far so very good and will post another review at the end of the year after we have collected , driven and returned our wheels 🙌🙃.

Ryan was very helpful, getting us the best and cheapest camper for our trip from Cairns-Brisbane!

Itinerary:

Day 1: Meet your crew at 1:30pm at the marina and get ready to sail!! You’ll head off and cruise around the beautiful Whitsundays islands whilst you get to know the rest of the legends on board, kick back with a beer or 3 and enjoy the views. The crew onboard will cook you an epic dinner and provide you with bants and entertainment for the evening!!

Day 2: Wake up and take a bush walk up to the 4th most photographed location in Australia. Gaze down on the 7km of pure white silica sand of Whitehaven Beach. Sunbathe/swim on the beautiful beach for a couple of hours. Head back to the boat for a snorkel/dive at one of our pristine dive/snorkel locations in and around North Hook, then sit down in the spacious galley for a sumptuous lunch, freshly prepared by crew. Our extensive permit allows us to go to all top locations in the Whitsundays. Spend the afternoon with friends slipping / sliding / spa’ing / swimming/sloshing and sunning or just sit and enjoy the view on our comfy bean bags. Get on board for some evening drinks and prep yourself for your delicious dinner. Let our crew show you how we like to have fun on the top deck, or chill out with a cold one in the air-conditioned galley with our board games. Fall into bed for a good kip before our final day tomorrow…

Day 3: The crew will wake you up to have a yummy breaky before you begin your last day of sailing. Sail to another beautiful snorkel/dive spot and splish/splash/spa/slide and dive for some final fun on the New Horizon head home, for a final briefing and then spruce yourself up for a night (with any crew on land) for the after party.

Where to leave your main bag:
