Shute Harbour is the original port for the Whitsundays. Presently it is home to ferries that service the Whitsunday Island resorts and outer reef.
It is sometimes used as a first or last night stopover for charterers though it can be swelly and receives ferry wash. Better options are Bauer Bay - South Molle Island and Palm Bay Resort - Long Island
