What we do

Thundercat Whitsundays is an exhilarating day boat that suits a wide range of travellers, including singles, couples, groups and families.

Tongarra Whitsundays: The two-day, two-night sailing experience is aimed at fun-loving backpackers travelling on a budget.

Falls to Paradise: Our newest day tour exploring Cedar Creek Falls and the exclusive Paradise Cove Resort. Guests can swim with turtles at the majestic waterfalls, surrounded by tropical flora and fauna. Enjoy the guided walks to the top for great ‘insta’ views. This is a great all-round day to enjoy with family and friends.

Paradise Cove Resort is a privately-owned estate at Woodwark Bay, surrounded by 10,000acres of the national park. The resort brings peace through the natural beauty of absolute oceanfront tropical gardens and fringed by white sand and towering coconut palms, this luxury hideaway will take guests to another place.  Paradise Cove offers guests the opportunity of a “digital break” and to remind ourselves how beautiful mother nature really is.

All our products offer travellers the opportunity to swim in crystal clear waters, snorkel in sheltered bays, leave footprints on Whitehaven Beach and enjoy a guided walk through the Australian Bush. Our passengers will witness the iconic swirling sand at Hill Inlet and get to take those ‘once in a lifetime’ photos.

customer testimonials

Here is what just a few of our happy customers have to say

“BEST DAY TRIP EVER Snorkelling around the reef was incredible. We have a 5 and 6 year old and they loved every minute of it. Initially, they were apprehensive but once they saw all the marine life, Wow. Whitehaven beach was beautiful. We enjoyed the freedom to do our own thing and take in the amazing surroundings. The weather made for a perfect day. The food was delicious. Best of all were the staff Reg and Jack. Jack was awesome! We loved his humour, patience, excitement, knowledge and kindness. What an asset he is. A genuinely fantastic guy. It is people like Jack that make this world a more wonderful place.”

“Actual Paradise!! I had the best time here on my whole trip to Australia. The staff was so passionate about the wild and marine life and tried so hard to show us as many things as possible (especially sea turtles). The resort was super clean. We had enough time to relax and enjoy paradise there. The food was very delicious and I met so many amazing people on my trip. Thank you for this incredible time!”

“Unforgettable 2 days Just came back from the Tongarra cruise and I can say without a doubt that it was incredible and one of the best experience I had here in Australia. After the first night, I already knew the cruise overcame my expectations and is definitely worth every dollar! ”
