Explore the Whitsundays and Airlie Beach over a few days

The Whitsunday Islands are an absolute highlight in Queensland.  Brighten up your day with a day out around The Whitsundays or at the waterfalls of Airlie Beach with Red Cat Adventures. Their fast boats can whip you out to Whitehaven Beach for a couple of hours or you can join them on land for a swim with the turtles at the water falls, or both! Either way you’ll have a great day.

If you haven’t been sailing before you are in for a treat. There is nothing like being out in the open water looking back at the islands and beaches.

So why Red Cat Adventures?

Well, because these guys are legends of course. Ash and Julie live and breathe adventure. This fun loving couple have created one of the most award winning adventure companies in Airlie and have injected so much of their energy and love of adventure into designing some epic day trips. Together with their dedicated team they just keep on pumping out one great trip after another.
