Day Cruises

The wilderness of Hinchinbrook Island is yours to experience. From the protected sanctuaries of dugong and turtle, to pristine rainforest, rugged headlands and deserted beaches, Hinchinbrook Island National Park is a REAL escape from the rigours of everyday life.

Your cruise will take you across seagrass bed sanctuaries and into the dense mangrove everglades of Missionary Bay. With a richly informative commentary, your skipper will guide you through the past, present and future of this vast wilderness.

A short walk along a mangrove boardwalk and over the sand dunes takes you to Ramsay Bay.

Here you have the opportunity to take a walk beachcombing, or take a swim in the clean azure waters of this magnificent ocean beach with spectacular backdrop of Mt. Bowen.


After leisurely exploring Ramsay Bay you will board the vessel again for your next destination, Cape Richards, passing by Garden Island and Goold Island enroute to the Hinchinbrook Island Wilderness Lodge and Resort jetty.
