Tour Departure Point Map
Broomstick Whitsundays 3 Day 2 Night Tour visits Whitehaven Beach for around 4 to 5 hours. During this time you embark on a bush-walk from Tongue Point (northern end of Whitehaven), this walk takes approximately 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 two day tour, you will get at least three opportunities 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.
All passengers are required to reconfirm their trip (via email or phone) and complete the waiver at least 48 hours prior to departure.

If you don’t have much luggage (which hopefully you won’t!) we highly recommend walking to the meeting point along the Airlie Beach Boardwalk (Bicentennial Walkway). This runs from Airlie Beach Main Street all the way to Cannonvale and has beautiful views. Please allow 30 minutes from the main street if you do choose to walk.
Alternatively, you can catch a taxi using the 13CABS app, call 13CABS, or use the rank in the main street. If you’re driving, type in ‘Bohemian Raw Café’ and it will take you there. Affectionately named ‘Boho’ by the locals, this is a great spot for morning coffee or breakfast on the day of your departure. Just keep in mind it gets busy so allow enough time
