What tours in the Whitsundays are suitable for a blind passenger?
The Whitsundays are one of the most beautiful places on earth. Not only visually, but to all the senses. The warm ocean breeze, combined with the lull of the ocean and softness of the sands at Whitehaven means that even those who are visually impaired can enjoy the amazing uniqueness of the Whitsundays. As one of the most visited places in Australia, the Whitsundays has something to offer to everyone.
Tours in the Whitsundays try to be as inclusive as they can be, allowing passengers from all walks of life to come to this beautiful part of the world to enjoy and explore the best way they can. While some may be able to enjoy it in different ways than others, it does not mean that everyone can’t enjoy the Whitsundays in their own way.
As safety is the most important factor in any part of a Whitsundays adventure, each tour has different criteria and limitations on what passengers can do. For those dealing with visual impairment it’s recommended, if not required, that you have a travelling companion during your Whitsundays tour. This will ensure that the passenger will have a guide for the entirety of their tour, helping them not only to navigate around the boat, but to also safely make their way to Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet or any other stops their tour has on offer. While the crew is there to help guests as much and as often as they can, they are unable to dedicate all of their time to any one passenger, so having a travel buddy or companion is the best way to enjoy your time in the Whitsundays.
Several tours that welcome visually impaired passengers include Solway Lass, Whitsunday Blue, Reefworld and Camira. Ask us which tours are available to you and we’ll ensure you get on the trip of your dreams in the Whitsundays.
