Airlie Beach activities
Reef and Whitehaven scenic flight (one hour)
Conducted by our valued industry partner, Air Whitsundays, this is the most comprehensive scenic flight on offer from Airlie Beach. In 60 minutes, your seaplane pilot will showcase the main group of Whitsunday Isles and the breathtaking Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
See Shute Harbour, the Molle Group of islands, Daydream Island, the Whitsunday Passage, Hayman Island, Hook Island, Whitsunday Island, Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet.
Reef Adventure tour (three hours)
Air Whitsunday's Reef Adventure tour departs daily, showcasing the amazing expanse of the Great Barrier Reef by air before landing and transferring to a private 'semi-submersible' vessel at Hardy Reef to experience its beauty from below sea level. Enjoy two hours of coral viewing and snorkelling from the comfort of a glass-bottom boat moored inside confined waters. All snorkelling equipment, snorkelling tuition and flotation devices for inexperienced snorkellers are included.
Great Barrier Reef by fast catamaran
A day trip by fast catamaran is an economical and comfortable way to explore the Great Barrier Reef. Trips leave from Able Point Marina, Long Island and Daydream Island resorts or Hamilton Island.
The 'cats' provide access to a custom-built pontoon which is equipped with underwater viewing pontoons. Patrolled snorkelling and coral sub rides are just some of the activities available. All meals are provided and during peak seasons early booking is essential through your WRAY sales consultant or direct with Cruise Whitsundays, one of our valued industry partners. Read more>
The Queensland coast is a mecca for fishermen and fishing in the Whitsundays and hiring of fishing charters is one of the most popular activities on the Great Barrier Reef. Coral trout, sweetlip, red emperor and cod are just some of the prize catches on offer.
We can book you a trip with a commercial operator, or you can charter a WRAY vessel and we can help you organise fishing equipment through local suppliers so you can experience some of the best fishing spots in Australia. Even if you've never caught a fish before, you're unlikely to go home empty handed!
Airlie Beach activities
There's plenty to do for all ages in Airlie Beach. Boardwalks meander through parklands, or you can stroll the beautiful Able Point and Shute Harbour marinas. For the kids, Airlie Beach Lagoon has a playground and water sport opportunities from the adjacent beach. Try the Lion's Markets on the foreshore Saturday mornings from 8am-12pm; or enjoy a cocktail at the Whitsunday Sailing Club. Twilight races are held on Wednesdays from the Club and locals are always looking for crew - just turn up at 3pm.
