Cruise to paradise for the day and remember it for a lifetime. Just across from Whitehaven Beach, Chalkies Bay is a pristine and colorful underwater world full of marine life. Explore the wonders of a living coral reef on this not-to-be-missed adventure. All snorkeling equipment and accessories are included. Back onboard, feast on a delicious barbecue buffet lunch.

Later, head to world-famous Whitehaven Beach, one of the area's premier natural attractions, located on an uninhabited and protected island. Lush green hills rise in the background, and clear blue water rolls onto its velvet sands. Take all afternoon to soak up the natural beauty of this 5-mile (7-km) stretch of pure-white silica sand.

Join one of the various beach activities, swim in the crystal-clear waters, take a leisurely walk along the beach, or just relax into the powder-soft sand and laze in the splendor of the Queensland sun. Be sure to keep an eye out for various species of turtles, often sighted during daily visits.
