Frequently Asked Questions

Is this tour suitable for all ages?

Big Fury is suitable for ages 3 years and upwards. However, being an open-air speed boat and given that the weather and sea conditions around the Whitsunday Islands vary, Fury is more suited for the adventure traveller as we are not a ferry.

Can I purchase drinks onboard or BYO?

You can purchase chilled bottled water, soft drinks and chocolates onboard. BYO ‘a few’ beers are permitted but please note no glass bottles and drinking alcohol during the day will prohibit you from participating in any snorkelling activity.

Where can I store my bags during the trip?

Due to space constraints, you cannot bring big bags, suitcases or child strollers onboard the vessel. A small backpack with beach wear is all you will need. Most hostels have secure luggage storage available for customers, either for free or for a very affordable fee, so be sure to ask as you check in to your accommodation.

How long do I spend at Whitehaven Beach?

Big Fury spends about 1 hour at the Hill Inlet lookout and then takes guests by boat to the southern 7km long stretch of Whitehaven Beach for 2-2.5 hours including a picnic lunch on the beach.

Are there prescription masks and wetsuits available?

Prescription masks can be hired from the Aqua Dive Shop, located at the Northern Village of Coral Sea Marina close to the meeting point. Rental fee is approx. $15.00 per day.

Full length lycra stinger suits are provided free of charge but if you would prefer to hire a 3mm wetsuit from the Aqua Dive Shop during the winter months, the cost of renting these wet suits is approx. $12.00 per day.

Do I need travel insurance?

We endorse the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that all travellers take out travel insurance. If you already have Travel Insurance please understand that it is your responsibility to ensure that your Travel Insurance covers you for all of the adventure style travel you have booked with us.

World Nomads travel insurance policies offer coverage for more than 150 activities. Get a quote, make a claim, or buy or extend your policy while on the road.
