The Whitsundays

When it comes to the best Whitsundays day trip the Thundercat tour from Airlie Beach is easily the most popular option we have to offer.

You’ll join the crew of Red Cat Adventures (who also run Tongarra and Ride To Paradise) for an adventure filled day that will showcase the best of what the Whitsundays has to offer.

Head out to the stunning islands on board their custom built Whitsundays boat, which will take you to the world famous Whitehaven Beach, the breathtaking views of Hill Inlet Lookout as well as experiencing below the surface too, snorkelling at reefs in Peters Bay and Mantaray Bay.

Couple that with an awesome tour guide, included lunch and afternoon snacks and you have everything you could want from a Whitsundays Day trip – so what are you waiting for?!
