Explore The Whitsundays - Tours

There are many ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences to be found in the Mackay region, from sailing the Whitsunday Island’s aboard one of numerous charter vessels, to diving and snorkelling the marine ecosystems of Great Barrier Reef.

How about catching Red Emperor or a delicious Coral Trout, or for those looking for that little bit extra, heading out for a day of heavy tackle fishing for the illusive Black Marlin or Sailfish.

Once your appetite for all things marine has been sedated, why not hire a vehicle from Rich at Gypsy Car Rentals  & head on a road trip through the region and soak up some history from Proserpine to Bowen & Collinsville. Visit the secluded townships of Dingo Beach and Hideaway bay for some light tackle action, lunch and a swim. For those looking for a bigger thrill, try heading out to Peter Faust Dam or the Proserpine River chasing that illusive meter Barramundi or some Blue & Threadfin Salmon! And please remeber you are in Crocodile country when in the river systems so take the necessary care and remain croc wise. 

Please get in touch with us and enquire if you’re interested in pre-booking any tours or require more information – we would be more than happy to assist you!
