What to Expect:

When you are onboard this awesome boat you’ll spending 2 days and 2 nights kicking back and relaxing whilst cruising around the beautiful Whitsunday Islands! You’ll visit the iconic Whitehaven Beach and have plenty of time to chill and do the bushwalk up to Hill Inlet Lookout to see that iconic swirl and get THE shot. Your crew will look after you whilst you are onboard, everything from waking you up in the morning, preparing you epic meals {when we say epic, we meaaaaaan it}. They’ll also provide you with entertainment and will take photos of your time onboard!

What will you get up to?

Well other than enjoying the sites, you’ll be able to relax in the hot tub or on the deck perfect for getting that Aussie glow! These guys have all the gear on board and you’ll be able to snorkel on the beautiful reefs and paddleboard as the sun is setting. You’ll enjoy the evenings with the crew and the other guests on board with some nice drinks {FYI its BYO!} under the stars, its a beauty so look up and check out that unpolluted sky.

Who is this trip for?

This trip is perfect if you are all about those chilled vibes and want to kick back and relax on a more luxury backpacker tour. We recommend this one for sure if you are travelling in a couple or a chilled relative and if you are all about relaxing over partying!

Things not to forget...

Cruising the Whitsundays is an epic experience and you’ll never forget this that is for SURE… You don’t need to worry about a thing whilst you are on board Powerplay, but we’ve listed a couple of things below that you might need to take with you and things to remember:

  • Take your own alcohol with you if you wish to drink
  • Paddleboards and snorkel equipment are all included
  • You don’t need to take much with you, just a small overnight bag
  • GoPro or Camera to capture those epic moments!

I hope you have an EPIC time out at the Whitsundays. Its without a doubt one of my favourite experiences on the East Coast.

Kick back, relax and HAVE FUN!

Absolutely recommended to anyone wanting to take the stress out of booking a camper van! Ben made the process for me so smooth and he genuinely cared for what my trip entailed and catered right to it! Blown away with his kindness and couldn’t be more happy with the price and deal we go for our van!

10/10 service! So helpful and friendly! Looking forward to heading on the trip already 😊

Jenna & Ryan are very professionals and helpful. Wish them the best

This shout out is for James! He took all of our worries,stress and anxiety about our up coming snow road trip and chucked them out the window. In under 30 minutes he had us booked with a better deal,upgraded vehicle and many laughs. Just for his service alone we will be back for every holiday! Thanks heaps James we look forward to our holiday because of you, now I can drive to Sydney today with a clear mind and no worries of having to sleep on my bike in the middle of the snow ⛄️ I have to mention his concern for safety was top notch with not wanting myself or my partner to have a bed fall on our heads again 😂

Thank you again and we look forward to our trip!

Mikey was very efficient and easy to deal with, we booked a camper and the whole process took around 1 hour from him getting us prices, speaking to different dealerships and us paying our deposit. He was happy to answer any questions we had and shared lots of information regarding routes, campsites and the day to day travel in a camper. We would definitely recommend!

The telephone consultations were easy to understand and everything was clearly explained. Even when my plans changed and I had to adjust my booking, he clarified everything directly with the car rental company and I was able to adjust my booking very quickly and without any problems. I always received an answer within minutes. I am extremely satisfied, thank you Ryan from RatPack-Travel!
