Thundercat: Tourism Australia blog

Red Cat Adventures is pleased to share a recent travelling blog by Allie Metz from Tourism Australia.

We’re so glad she enjoyed a day on Thundercat in June.

“Depart Abell Point Marina at 9am on board Red Cat Adventures’ Thundercat Tour for an exhilarating day exploring Whitsunday Island and the Great Barrier Reef. After a short cruise out to the island, your guides will take you the easy walk up to the infamous Hill Inlet lookout to see the signature swirling sandbars of Whitehaven Beach from above. Grab the perfect selfie at this picturesque spot before jumping back in the boat. You’ll have a quick lunch before disembarking on Whitehaven Beach for a few hours of exploring, sun soaking and swimming. Marvel at the bright white sand of this unique spot, which is 98% pure silica. It has a texture similar to flour and is so fine you can polish your jewellery with it.

Finally, jump on board your boat once more for a short trip out to Mantaray Bay to snorkel the clear waters and come face to face with colourful fish, including giant Maori wrasse. After you’ve met all the local underwater residents, you’ll be back at Abell Point Marina by about 5pm”
