Australia Things to Do: 1,336 reviews and 2,265 photos

The Whitsunday Islands are just off the Queensland Coast and feature some of the most brilliant beaches in the world. Due to the many coral reefs and the diverse fish life, the Whitsundays are perfect snorkelling and scuba diving territory. A Whitsunday islands cruise is therefore highly recommended. The main hub for these activities is the town of Airlie Beach, there is fierce competition between the cruise operators.

The itinerary, group age + size, included acvtivities and prices vary enormously from operator to operator, so you should do some research on the Internet which one suits your interests best, and to avoid "booze tours". You should at least invest three days of your vacation to really appreciate the experience. There are lots of affordable cruising operators in Airlie Beach.
