This is an adventure to one of the last unspoilt regions on the East Coast.

Want the best Whitsundays Experience? ZigZag is a true Full Day Tour meeting at 8 am and returning at 4 pm. Plus it is the fastest boat in the Whitsundays. More time at the islands and the fastest boat means this tour is the #1 way to see the Whitsundays.

ZigZag is a 39ft Naiad boat with 4 engines totalling 1200 horsepower! This means the vessel is fast, yet an extremely comfortable ride, allowing guests of all ages and adventure levels to take part. We limit to just 35 guests, making sure you get the small group experience and include morning tea, lunch and afternoon snacks.

The ZigZag crew are well known as the friendliest tour guides in the Whitsundays. They are all trained in the highest environmental standards by the company’s owner who is a marine biologist trained right here on the Great Barrier Reef.

If you like snorkelling and want to see the beautiful coral of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, then this tour is for you. Our qualified crew choose the best locations that suit the conditions. These locations can include Chalkies Bay, Blue Pearl Bay, Luncheon Bay and Border Island and a secret bay we keep quiet. (you will see why) These tropical waters are filled with tropical fish and turtles year round! These areas of reef are sheltered by the islands and have a large, diverse range of stunning colours and abundant sea life.

Spend up to 2 hours exploring the 97% pure silica white sands of Whitehaven Beach; you will also be served a homemade buffet lunch here and have plenty of time to explore this iconic destination.

On returning from Whitehaven Beach we stop off at Palm Bay Resort on the idyllic Long Island, this is a secluded resort where you will get the opportunity for a relaxing swim in the pool or a drink at the bar for a short while before returning to Airlie beach.

ZigZag Tours

This tour made my holiday here at Airle Beach. Everything from the staff, the boat, the tour route, the snorkelling, the lunch, it was all top class. The team really made it the most enjoyable experience, especially Will, who had us laughing non stop through out the day.

Great fun experience

If you are looking for the perfect day to visit the Whitsundays Zig Zag is made for you. We had some adrenaline with the speed boat, we saw a lot of different fish during the two snorkeling sessions, we had a great lunch on the beach and we even went to the lookout point to see Whitehaven beach! The crew is friendly and will adapt the day depending on the weather. We recommend Zig Zag to everyone.

Fun filled day with spectacular views

The trip feels like an exclusive one since they take us to secluded places to snorkel and soak up the sun over white sand. Less people on board means extra personal attention. Captain Taz will make sure you are never bored with his 360s and zigzags over the sea. Deck hand Will fills in with his awesome sense of humor. The equipment were of good quality. Overall value for Money and much more fun is ensured than big cruises. Go for it!!!
