“We’re very excited to be able to provide this new service to our guests,” says Kristie Kaighin, owner and operator of Whitsunday Holidays. “The Whitsundays is home to 74 magnificent islands with Hamilton Island as its hub, so there’s an amazing array of tours, excursions and daytrips to choose from. We’ve handpicked a selection of the best, and with our online tour directory, our website now acts as a ‘one stop shop’ for our guests.”
Kristie identified the need for the convenient service in response to an increasing stream of guest enquiry. “Many guests were asking what tours we would suggest. They don’t know the area like we do, so really rely on our recommendations. My team have all lived on Hamilton Island and has intimate knowledge of everything there is to do and all The Whitsundays have to offer. Each of us has personally experienced every tour and can confidently offer firsthand information and advice.”
No trip to Hamilton Island would be complete without experiencing a selection of the ‘must do’ tours available. Guests will find something to suit every pace, taste, timeframe and budget – from reef tours to explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef; fishing charter adventures in waters where game fish abound; or unwinding with a leisurely cruise to tour the iconic sands of Whitehaven Beach. Examples of available tours include:
- Reef Tours: Join Cruise Whitsundays on one of their daily trips. Departing Hamilton Island Marina on board their purpose built Reef vessels, they offer various ways to experience the Great Barrier Reef including full day tours including buffet lunch, or a Reef Sleep overnight tour, sleeping under the stars.
- Fishing Tours: The experienced crew at Renegade Fishing Charters promise action packed fishing adventures for everyone from first timers to seasoned fishers. The Whitsundays is renowned for superior fishing and is home to marlin, sailfish, tuna, coral trout and more – you’re guaranteed the fishing trip of a lifetime.
- Whitehaven Beach Tours: Consistently voted as one of the best beaches in the world, Whitehaven Beach’s pure white silica sand stretches for 7 kilometers along beautiful Whitsunday Island. Cruise Whitsundays offer full day, half day, and combined island trips to Whitehaven Beach from Hamilton Island.
With an onus on convenience, all tours can be pre-booked with the click of a mouse. “This makes it so much easier for our guests,” says Kristie. “Instead of waiting until they arrive on the Island, they can now pre-book their tours with us. This will ensure they don’t miss out as some tours are quite popular and can be booked out well in advance.”
“As the largest Hamilton Island accommodation agent in the Whitsundays, it made sense to add tour bookings to our holiday accommodation options. We already have the biggest and best range of exclusive Hamilton Island apartments, villas and luxury homes combined with our popular yacht charter service. With the addition of online tour bookings, everything our guest’s need is under one roof.”
