Whitehaven Beach is a sliver of white-sand and clear water heaven, but it usually takes a few hours to reach the secluded spot by boat. With this tour, quickly reach the beach by helicopter from Whitsunday Airport. Get aerial views of the Whitsunday Islands on a roughly 15-minute flight, spend some free time on the beach, and head back to the coast. You’ll have plenty of time left in your day for another adventure.
- Ideal for travelers who want to see Whitehaven Beach but don’t have time for a boat ride
- Be back in Airlie Beach after a few hours
- See the beautiful Whitsunday Islands from above
- Transfers to and from Airlie Beach are available at no additional cost
