Wet Weather Activities

It’s raining? So what! There are plenty of ways to enjoy the Whitsundays in the wet. 

The summer rain isn’t cold, and if you’re wet already, then why not get out and do all the activities you’d planned - snorkelling, sailing, cruising and exploring the Whitsundays.  Just because it is raining in Airlie Beach might not mean it’s raining on the islands, or at the Reef, or vice versa, so make sure you check with local operators as to the conditions of the day.
