Hinchinbrook Island Cruises

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Hinchinbrook Island Cruises is a locally owned and operated business, providing day tours to Hinchinbrook Island and surrounds, as well as transferring hikers to the world-renowned Thorsborne Trail.

Hinchinbrook Island is the world’s largest Island National Park and is well known for its range of habitats including misty, heath-covered mountains, sandy beaches, paperbark and palm wetlands, and extensive woodlands. Patches of lush rainforest and eucalypt forest descend to a mangrove-fringed channel in the west, with sweeping bays and rocky headlands along the east coast.

You can choose from a range of day cruises, there is something for everyone. Some of the tours include both cruising in the boat and walking on the island and others you can just sit back and relax on the boat watching the amazing sights pass by. The choice is yours.
