Handy Tips

  • Don’t overpack. Most crews only accept a small, soft bag with the essentials, and may refuse large suitcases. Check out where to store excess luggage in Airlie Beach if required.

  • Overnight tours provide guests with fresh linen, bath towels and some shower toiletries.

  • Plentiful meals and snacks are provided, however, if you have any favourites or are a big eater, bring a few of your own snacks. Let us know of any dietary requirements upon booking.

  • Most of our overnight tours allow BYO alcohol, however, some vessels don’t allow glass or red wine. Check with your agent upon booking whether there is alcohol available for purchase if you can BYO and what you can BYO.

  • Stay sun safe. Nothing ruins a trip to the Whitsundays like a nasty sunburn!
