What a fantastic time for my family!
Dec. 2021 • Family
I'd highly recommend this day tour with Red Cat. The ride was smooth, the crew were friendly and the views both in and out of the water were spectacular.

Though the time of year made it warm, the walk over to Whitehaven and up to the lookout was easy enough for everyone in our group. The crew timed it so that the view from the Hill Inlet lookout was filled with all the beautiful swirling white sands.

My husband can't swim well and he was made to feel safe and felt comfortable enough to get in the water and snorkel for the first time ever. I can highly recommend you bring an underwater camera if you can as the fish and coral at both snorkelling places were definitely worthy of being photographed.

The Red Cat team made the day for my family one we'll never forget.

OMG A must do bucket list tick
Omg..what an experience. A huge Lifetime must do bucket list tick. 8 hours of pure white sand aqua sea, coral & reef fish
Started at the marina climbing aboard a canapied high speed boat which took us around the Whitsunday islands stopping to swim in pristine aqua waters with some of the whitest sand in the world. Next a short hike up to the 3 lookouts to take in the view before heading back to the boat for an onboard buffet lunch.
We then ventured to a secluded bay for a snorkle in the most awesome natural aquarium! Hundreds of huge and small reef fish swimming around us was a sight to behold. As if that wasnt enough we then moved further around the island for more snorkling but this time drifting over a huge coastal coral reef.
This company is the bomb. A big shout out to Ryan our bus driver , Dave the skipper and Ian our charasmatic hilarious tour guide. Its worth coming to the Whitsundays and Airlie Beach just to do this tour.This is a must do.

Greatest Trip of this holiday
Dec. 2021 • Family
Can't really decide what part of the tour was my favourite. Ian and Changa were great hosts which was fantastic. Whitehaven Beach was as beautiful as it looks in postcards and the team used their knowledge to wait awhile to go to the lookout because of the tides. The snorkling with fish was beautiful and the spot where we snorkelled along the Corals was awesome.

Loved it highly recommended to all

Great day out!
Nov. 2021
Cam and Ryan did a great job hosting our tour that included snorkeling and visiting Whitehaven Beach. The weather wasn't the greatest, but the guys did well to adjust our tour to fit in three opportunities for snorkeling.

The snorkeling locations were great, one spot, in particular, was teeming with fish. The guys looked after us with great energy and enthusiasm. I'd recommend this tour for any group type.

Some tips:
The boats are capable of high speeds so prepare for high winds and spray while traveling.
When arriving at Whitehaven Beach, I suggest applying insect spray as the mosquitoes are very active.
