Whiteheave X press-The best choice on this holiday
Mary_F
, Dec 2021
We really really enjoy this trip with X press. BBQ is much more suitable for our taste rather than buffet on the ship. Also, we could enjoy the freedom, choose what we really prefer. We choose not go to first bushwalking’s, staying on the beach so nice. My daughter doesn’t want to leave at all. No rush, so enjoy the time.

Great day out to a beautiful destination. The day was punctuated by a tasty bar-b-q lunch at Whitehaven Beach. The bush walks to the lookouts were absolutely worth the effort of all the steps. Beautiful scenery and with the sun shining, it was an absolute picture!

Small group tour, food was great, though the weather was bad, we’re still lucky to see the beauty of Whitehaven beach and WhitSundays even if it’s cloudy and raining or should I say Wethaven and Wetsundays lol, overall for me, it’s a great experience. I’ll be back for sure.

On this trip you can see whitehaven Beach from different sides: from two outlooks, from the sea and actually standing on the beach. The trip is very well organised. The food is very good: lovely snacks on the boat and a great barbecue on the beach. Ther was time for snorkling. Stingersuits were provided.

This was an excellent day trip. Crew members Jill and Terry were fantastic. I would add Capt Dan is also a great cook. The food at the BBQ was great and plentiful.

Amazing tour!
Brittany_S
, Jan 2020
I chose this tour out of the many we researched because it was a bargain and allowed 3+ hours of personal beach time. I wanted this time rather than being construed to a strict schedule like other tours offer. Also loved the family-oriented crew on board and how they looked after all of us that day. A very well organised tour with a great, chilled out crew and great offerings.

It was humid and hot in November ( just a beginning of summer) and I love it. The tour won’t be amazing without the team. Great service and I cannot wait to be back again. Thank you so much.

A great day out - even if we did get a really windy day for 'cruising'! Shane, Terry and Dan were fantastic. Hilltop Inlet Lookout was great. Bbq lunch Whitehaven Beach amazing. Snorkeling and the glass bottom boat were also great.

This was a fun day or snorkeling, site seeing and swimming. The BBQ was fantastic and the tour guides were personable and helpful. Unfortunately, the coral is pretty bleached and we didn't see too many different types of marine life although the guides did their best feeding the fish so they would swim closer to where we were snorkeling. Definitely pay the 8 for the stinger suit. We saw some massive jellyfish. The day was set so it was the perfect amount of activity and time to relax. I would highly recommend.

Very disappointed with this one. Rushed to and from the hill inlet by the tour operator, had less than 5 minutes (of an 8hr day) to take photos over Whitehaven (which is the whole point of going there). The "glass bottom boat" is a tiny window in the bottom of a dingy. Couldn't see a thing.

The experience was amazing! Boat, hike, beach, snokel and lunch were all top notch. Great crew that obviously like what they do. One small change would be to organize pickup online. As a tourist calling to arrange pickup is difficult and the was no in town office that we could find to ask. We found it and it was worth it!

The view of Whitehaven beach from the lookout is just amazing. The BBQ lunch on the beach was also great. We were just a bit disappointed by the snorkelling material. The captain Dan was a fun guy with stories about shark bites and all. Unfortunately the other 2 crew members were borderline rude.
