    AMAZING experience. I did this tour last year for my birthday and made sure I booked it again on this years trip to The Whitsundays. Guides are amazing and friendly. Food was amazing and so much food on offer. Best part was the snorkling and Whitehaven beach. Would highly recommend this tour.

    This tour was absolutely the highlight of my time in Whitsundays. I loved every minute of it, and to be honest I can't wait to do it again. The staff was super nice and friendly, the food was great, the boat is very stable, although I did get a bit of seasickness at the beginning, but the vibe of the staff and others made me not focus on it. Thanks Camira and the staff there for making my day awesome!

    I had the best time on this day tour and I highly recommend! Definitely worth your money, we got 2 x morning teas, lunch, and 2 x afternoon teas. All the food was so yum and filling. Beer o’clock after snorkelling was a treat. And they gave out zooper doopers which was amazing with the heat. Whitehaven Beach was phenomenal and I think 2-2.5 hours there is plenty of time. I did this tour solo but it suits all types of travellers! The crew were all so lovely and accomodating, could not fault any of them! Bing Bong
