What to Pack
If possible, we please ask guests pack in a soft sided bag. We suggest: swimmers, beach towel, sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses, hat, jacket or sweater, sandals/joggers/thongs for island walk, toiletries, and any prescribed medicines. There are no shops around the islands, so please pick up important items or treats before arriving at the marina.
Large luggage, we prefer that large wheelie bags or hard sided bags are NOT taken on-board as they can damage the interior of the yacht.
(1 dive) Diving is available when we meet up with our rendezvous dive boat Tornado. Whether you are a certified diver or a first time diver, we offer all guests the opportunity to discover the underwater world. With multiple dive locations available, we have the ability to move to the best diving spot on the day. You can pre book a dive at the Explore Whitsundays office in Airlie Beach, or organize with the crew on tour.
Whitsunday Bliss is a BYO vessel, this means you are able to bring your own alcohol onto the tour. Drinking water and soft drinks are complimentary throughout your tour.
Don't worry, we supply swimming noodles and additional floatation as required. We will do a risk assessment on every guest before entering the water. While in the water the small tender will be relatively close by. In the Whitsundays, the reefs we visit are off the beaches, so it is pretty easy to make way to the beach.
Guests can park vehicles at Abell Point Marina. It is a Pay and Display car park with the fee of $8.00 per day, payable by coins of credit card.
