1 Day Whitsundays Thundercat Tour$220pp

“Seeing the Whitsundays in a day is impossible”, said nobody ever after jumping on Thundercat.

This Whitsundays day trip is perfect for the kind of traveller that doesn’t fancy sleeping on a boat and wants to make the most out of their one day at The Whitsundays. This trip is an all-rounder so as long as you’re into world class beaches, immaculate snorkelling, and a guided hike through a national park then look no further than this. Offering max time on the islands, the lively legends that captain the boat will get you to all the right places quicker than any other. Hill Inlet Lookout & Whitehaven Beach are just the tip of the iceberg.

You’ll be blown away by the speed and stability of this custom built vessel so you can forget about getting seasick. Whether you’re a family, a bunch of mates, or just cruising solo, it’s all good in the hood.

Red Cat Adventures (the guys behind this tour) have got everything covered. Lunch, marine park fees, snorkelling equipment, and stinger suits are all included in the cost. There’s even an onboard toilet, so whilst this day is full of surprises, getting caught with your pants down isn’t one of them.
