DAY 4 HOOK ISLAND
After breakfast, hike the 5km trail up to Whitsunday Peak, about 1.5 hours, and take in spectacular views from the top. Back onboard, enjoy an afternoon of fun along the west coast of Whitsunday Island, one of the only parts of the islands where jet skis and other personal watercrafts are authorised. Later, cruise on to Hook Island.
Separated from Whitsunday Island by a narrow passage, Hook Island offers vibrant waters for diving and snorkelling, with turtles, reef fish, dolphins, manta rays and humpback whales frolicking in Whitsunday Passage. On land, enjoy fjord-like inlets, forest walks, pure blue waters and white beaches. For a culture hit, walk the trail at Nara Inlet and take in the waterfall and the Aboriginal rock art created by the original Ngaro people.
