Whitehaven Beach


Freight Train Whitsundays Tour visits Whitehaven Beach for around 2 hours. During this time you embark on a bush-walk from Tongue Point (northern end of Whitehaven), this walk takes around 15 minutes, once at the top you will experience Whitehaven Beach above on the viewing platform. This breathtaking view from here lets you see all 7 km of the beach as well as the world-famous swirling sands that form the inlet


Snorkelling The Reef


During your Whitsundays overnight tour, you will get the opportunity to snorkel the coral-filled bays on the coastal fringes of the islands. Here you can see turtles, Maori wrasse, batfish, parrotfish, clownfish (Nemo) plus plenty more! in most bays, the coral starts close to shore and is easily accessible by the small tender boats. For the non-confident swimmers, there are noodles and flotation devices available for safety



Freight Train Whitsundays crew are more than happy to teach you the basics of sailing. Get involved helping the crew hoist the mainsail and headsail. The qualified team on board will give you lessons, and if you’re lucky you may get to stand at the helm and steer the boat towards your next destination. This is optional if you do not wish to participate you can just lye back and enjoy the ride.

Masks and snorkels are all included in the price of your trip and will be distributed on board.



Wearing a Lycra stinger suit will prevent UV exposure and significantly reduce your risk to marine stingers. Freight Train requires that all passengers wear a full length stinger suit or wetsuit if you wish to swim and or snorkel from our vessels.
