Sample Itinerary

Whitehaven Beach
Powerplay will guide you to one of the most stunning places in the world, Whitehaven Beach. Famous for its silica sand beaches that stretch for seven uninterrupted kilometers, Whitehaven is unlike anything you've ever seen. You can bask in the sun, walk among the stingrays, or swim in the clear blue waters. Whitehaven has stunning views of its neighbouring islands as well as a beautiful and unique landscape that is a photographers dream.

Hill Inlet Lookout
Your host will take you on a guided bushwalk on Whitsunday Island where you will be able to witness the famed swirling sands of Hill Inlet. These swirling sands create a masterpiece of aqua, azure, topaz and white as the colours of the ocean and silica sands blend together for a truly magical experience.

They will educate you and some of the marine life you may encounter, including hard and soft corals, beautiful tropical fish, turtles, stingrays and elusive reef sharks. Quality equipment is provided on board free of charge, and your helpful crew are there to help with any questions you may have.
