One of the best day tours you could choose on the Whitsundays. Our choice of the one snorkle/ beach/ lookout Whitehaven tour allowed a lot more time frolicking on the beautiful beaches and for the walk to the outlook which is a must. The crew were fantastic, had great personalities which added to the overall experience. Loved every moment of it- just DO it.

Amazing day with Shellie and Toby, right from the beginning, their energy and humour made the day so eventful. From the snorkelling, hiking to the laxing around Whitehaven they both were so knowledgeable and passionate about their back yard. I would highly recommend this adventure especially if you end up with these two legends!
