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

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



Habibi 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.
