    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

    An absolutely amazing experience! We woke up on a cloudy, overcast, drizzler of a day and thought it was probably going to get called off but it turned out to be one of the best day trips we've ever done. The vessel is huge, able to fit 70 people, and is super steady on the water so none of us got sea sick. The crew were super friendly, funny, helpful and at the same time really professional. The music they played throughout the day was really well chosen, fit the mood perfectly the whole day. We were a little nervous about snorkelling as we had never done it before but the crew explained the process and assuaged our fears. Whitehaven Beach is a must see! Beautiful beyond description with lots of whiting, sting rays and baby lemon sharks swimming around. The food was great and in plentiful supply, there was morning tea, a huge BBQ lunch with lots of prawns and afternoon tea. All the while the crew were happy to doll out beers, soda or water the entire day. Well worth the $209!!!

    The staff were awesome. The music played all day was awesome. The whole experience was awesome! Clean boat, even the bathrooms were kept clean throughout the day. Had a nice relaxing day sailing the whitsundays, learning about some of them, went for a nice swim in clear blue water and the softest white sand I’ve ever been on!
