What You Need To Know Before Purchasing Whitsundays Day Trips

 

Whitsunday Day Trips are the perfect way to visit the Whitsundays Islands. These day tours are mostly fast-paced boats that maximize your day on the water. Each trip is slightly different, but most tick off the two big wants for any holidaymaker, Whitehaven Beach and snorkelling the coral around the islands. When choosing your Whitsunday Day Trips, there are specific factors that you need to take into consideration.

 

  1. Price Of The Tour  – Pricing is always an essential factor in choosing any tour; you want value for your money. Most trips range from $159 to $230 for an adult and $105 to $159 for a child; there are family packages available on most tours as well. There is an opportunity to pay $159 for an adult with ZigZag Whitsundays, but you will need to book one of the first 12 seats on tour.
  2. What The Tour Includes – This is where some Whitsundays day tours differ from each other .some trips include lunch and a wetsuit in the price, and some have them as optional extras. All tours include a mask and snorkel. Make sure you read what the trip consists of, this way you will be prepared for the day.
  3. Departure And Return Times – This is extremely important if you are flying or catching a bus on the same day as the tour. Some tours depart as early as 8 am while others leave around 10 am. Return times vary between 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm. The return times can vary by 20 minutes depending on the wind and tides that day.
  4. Where Does The Trip Go – The most important answer! Well once again it varies… so let us list the most popular place a day trip from Airlie beach goes. Please note a day trip goes to around 3 locations in a day.

 

 

Our Favourite Day Tour Locations In The Whitsundays

  • Hill Inlet Lookout Whitehaven Beach North End at Bettys Beach
  • South Whitehaven Beach, including the new South Whitehaven Beach Lookout
  • Chalkies beach – excellent beach plus snorkel location and lookout platform
  • Langford spit – now has a walking track and lookout
  • Nara inlet – aboriginal rock drawings
  • Boarder island – snorkel location
  • Whitsunday Island – multiple snorkel locations
  • Hook Island – numerous snorkel locations
  • Hayman Island – multiple snorkel locations

One other factor is if you are worried about seasickness, if this is the case choose the fastest boat you can find. The boats like Big Fury and ZigZag Whitsundays have over 1000 horsepower. You will not get seasick in these fast boats, they ride the tops of the waves instead of rocking through them.
