Whitehaven Beach is a picturesque 7 km stretch along Whitsunday Island that is located at the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. This famous beach is known for its 98 percent pure white silica sand, which gives it a near luminescent shade of white. 

Lady Enid is a family owned and operated business in the Whitsundays. The Graham family, who owns the vessel now, showcases the vessel as an elegant adventure experience in the Whitsunday Islands as they continue to provide wonderful memories for many tourists and locals alike.
