Custom Built Whitsunday Catamarans

When it comes to Whitsunday Catamarans, nothing is more important than comfort, and at Red Cat Adventures, we custom build all of our products for our tours so that they are ideal for Whitsunday conditions.


Why Guests Love Our Custom-Built Whitsunday Catamarans


We currently have three catamarans which we use in our tours:


This is the catamaran we use for our Thundercat Day Tour—which takes you to all the best hot spots The Whitsundays has to offer. The multi-award-winning tour is fast paced, exciting, and our guests always have a blast!

Seating 32 guests, it’s one of the fastest catamaran boats in the Whitsundays—and the speed also gives it stability that alleviates sea-sickness (resulting in peak comfort while sight-seeing all the lush, tropical islands!)

The seats are designed to give passengers back support and offer a comfortable and stylish way to travel around the islands. The boat is also fairly spacious—so you’re not crammed in with the other guests and you can take incredible pictures of marine life and landmarks.

An on-board toilet offers additional comfort for passengers throughout the day as well—after all, you spend your entire day exploring beaches (such as Whitehaven Beach) and snorkelling fringing reefs—so the last thing you want is to be busting the entire time! More information and bookings

Whitsundays Catamarans Thundercat Tongarra and Wildcat



Our 12 x 8 metre single masted catamaran vessel Tongarra is our sailing vessel for the 2-day, 2-night Tongarra tour.

This awesome catamaran has a massive deck space for backpackers and travellers to sunbathe and sightsee while we show them around the Whitsunday Islands. Very few Whitsunday catamarans are as impressive as Tongarra—which houses a spacious saloon area to chill out in, private bunk bed spaces (for those who aren’t out sleeping under the stars), and relaxing hot showers onboard following an exciting day out snorkelling the reef.

For a fun and social sailing experience, Tongarra is the ultimate vessel to travel on. More Information and bookings

Wildcat Catamaran on the way to the Whitsundays



Thundercat has a sister vessel called Wildcat, which is designed exactly the same and used for the incredible Ride-To-Paradise tour.

If getting to explore The Whitsundays in one day just isn’t enough, and you prefer accommodations safely back on shore, then Ride-To-Paradise is the perfect tour for you. This 2-day, 2-night tour takes you out to Whitehaven Beach, stunning snorkelling spots, sandbars, and sightseeing around the islands too! But the best part is getting to stay in dreamy Paradise Cove Resort each night—which is truly like being in another world entirely. The secluded resort offers a wide range of activities and luxuriously comfortable accommodation for travellers while touring with us.

Even though you don’t stay overnight onboard Wildcat, it does feel like a home away from home for those couple of days because you spend so much time travelling around on it in comfort and style. More Information and bookings
