Which Whitsundays Tour Is Perfect For You?



Imagine getting to experience the best of the Whitsunday Islands in just one day? If that sounds like a dreamy day well spent, then Thundercat is the perfect adventure for you!

Perfect for single travelers, adventurous couples, friendship groups and families (children must be ages 4+), the 2017 and 2018 multi-award-winning tour takes you to famous Whitehaven beach, Hill Inlet Lookout and two of the best snorkeling spots fringing the Great Barrier Reef.

You’ll depart from Abell Point Marina at 9am on our stable Thundercat cameraman and cross the sparkling ocean waves all the way to Hill Inlet Lookout—where you can snap those incredible, once in a lifetime photos of the iconic swirling sands of Whitehaven Beach. Then, make your way down to the softest, whitest beach you’ll ever set foot on. The sand is 97% pure silica, and the crystal-clear waters are absolutely breathtaking.

After a scrumptious morning tea and lunch, you’ll be taken to either Peter Bay (known for its quiet atmosphere and beautiful coral) or Stonehaven Bay, as well as Mantaray Bay (known for its underwater valleys and caves). Swim in the gorgeous Whitsunday waters among our friendly marine life and beautiful coral reef.

The day will finish with afternoon tea and an exhilarating ride back to Abell Point Marina by 5pm.



Are you a backpacker on a budget looking for a fun, social Whitsundays Tour sailing experience? Tongarra is an unmissable adventure simply calling your name, aimed at age groups 18+!
