Or, take a seat at one of the glorious restaurants offering uninterrupted views out over the waters of Pioneer Bay, towards the 74 islands that make up the Whitsundays. These heavenly waters don't just attract humans. Humpback and pilot whales also migrate here to indulge in the warm waters and sheltered location.

Walking at Arlie Beach is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility and is also wheelchair-accessible. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and bottled water from the ship. Guests opting to swim should wear a swimsuit under a cover-up, and bring a towel, beach shoes and sun protection from the ship. Guests cannot stay on the coach for extended visits to venues, as the air-conditioning on the coach does not work without the engine running. The tour sequence may vary. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
