Border Island Whitsundays

Border Island is one of the 'outlying' islands of the Whitsundays, and for guests who wish to visit here, will be rewarded with some spectacular views above and below the waterline.

The island covers just over 3 square kilometers covered in a rich vegetation including Hoop Pines, tall grasses and palm trees. From the many bays there are many fringing reef systems, with vibrant soft and hard corals. Regular visitors to these reefs include turtles, dolphins and whales in season (July-October).

Crew will issue each guest a wetsuit, mask with snorkel and a set of fins. Then after a short safety briefing you will be transferred by our tender vessel close to the reef for a relaxed swim with our tropical marine life. The water temperature sits between 22-23° in the winter months, and 29-30° in the summer months.

Croc Head Bay Whitsundays

New Bush Walk - October 2018

In October 2018, National Parks completed a brand new walking track to a phenomenal lookout facing East over Pitt Stop and West over Cateran Bay. The walk will take around 40 minutes in each direction, starting with a steady incline with steps before leveling out along the ridge of the island.

Make sure you take plenty of water and sun protection as there is little shade from the sun on this Border Islands new walk. Whitsunday Bliss crew will supply fresh chilled water, soft drinks and light snacks should you wish to take them on your hike!
