About The Whitsundays

Exploring the Whitsundays With A Jet Ski

Rebecca Hales took this amazing photo while on an adventure with six jet skis exploring the Great Barrier Reef.

When exploring the Whitsunday Islands with a jet ski, you will be spoilt for choice with 74 islands to choose from! As long as the weather is permitting, you can pull up your jet ski just about anywhere!

You don’t have to worry about it being low tide, because a jet ski is small and light, so you can ride along in the shallows. It is also easy to maneuver around the rocks and reefs in small places, and you can pull up at almost any beach.

So go ahead, jump on board and explore the Whitsunday coastline!

Morne du Rand from the local Whitsunday Jet Ski Club recently organised a trip with friends and headed south from Hamilton Island to explore the Lindeman group of islands in the Whitsundays.

Whitsunday Powersports tagged along and they shared these stunning drone shots of their recent trip, and what a beautiful day it was. Clear turquoise waters, rocky shores, untamed bush land and private sandy beaches. Where else would you rather spend your weekend?

The Lindeman Group is located 35km south-east of Shute Harbour and it is made up of Shaw Island, Mansell Island, Keyser Island, Gaibirra Island, Maher Island and Lindeman Island. There is also over ten named reefs surrounding these islands which make outstanding secluded snorkeling spots.

Consisting of mostly National Park, the Lindeman group of islands have multiple beaches, mountains, walking tracks and camping spots. You can book a campsite at Boat Port or Neck Bay on the Queensland National Parks website.

Aboriginal people refer to Lindeman Island as Yara-kimba, the place of snapper-bream fish.

Lindeman Island was one of the first Whitsunday islands to be developed, but the resort is no longer operational. The new island owner is currently planning to build a luxury Whitsunday resort. To keep updated on their progress, check out their website http://lindeman.net.au/.

Jet skis allow you to get up close and personal with the pristine beaches, untouched coastlines, breathtaking reefs and spectacular wildlife that call the Whitsundays home.

You will get to feel the salty breeze rush past your face and blow your hair wild, the warm water of the Coral Sea will splash against your feet and excitement will fill your stomach as you ride up and down on the Whitsunday waves.
