Thank you Triplem67. I actually did look at your Roll Call for the Feb 25 Edge. It was quite helpful and you were very helpful. There was lots of info on it.  At that time j was looking to get from Arlie Beach to the Whitsunday’s  on Celebrity tight schedule and following your  roll call on how you tried to get it all to come together. 

@mauimary Try Red Cat Adventures for a non-ship Airlie Beach excursion to Whitehaven Beach.  If you've been reading our Roll Call from Edge GBR 25Feb, you'll know that Red Cat came to the party at the last minute for our Cruise, but as far as I know they pulled it off.  I think they had capacity for 38 people on their boat.  

The guy at Red Cat was Luke and he can be found by searching Luke Red Cat on that other social media platform that is not allowed to mentioned here at CC.  😉

Hey there @Madson16
Sorry I haven't responded sooner.... unless I get tagged I don't see the messages unless I log in to have a read of what people are asking.  

I can email you the details of the Private car company I used.  I'll find the costing for our group back in March and have them ready to send to you.  It won't be as cheap as maybe a Taxi or Rideshare, but the plus side was reliability.  They were there to pick us up and take us to Skyrail and they were waiting for us as booked when we got back.  

You may also want to check out the Skyrail website.  I believe their bus connection improved for Cruise Ship passengers, but it was only happening just as we went in early March.  So it wasn't an option for us initially as we arranged our transport was in advance.  

Email me at triplem67 @ gmail.com (take out the spaces).  👍

We have set up a private tour from Airlie Beach with Red Cat Adventures. Reach out to Luke, he will start a list and once you have about 30 people he will book the tour. He is working around the short port time as well. We had enough interest that there are 3 boats booked for the Whitsuday tour.
