If you do an overnight tour, do this one!
Brad (the skipper & owner), Oliver, and Kyle were absolutely fantastic the whole trip. We were well looked after and were at no risk of going hungry or thirsty. The food was delicious. We had a bit of rain one day but no one can control that. Whitehaven was beautiful and full of little rays..we had plenty of time here. On the second day, we went kayaking and snorkelling and saw many fish, rays, and turtles. 10/10 recommend this family run business. Thanks so much guys and all the best.

A unique experience.
Apr. 2021
Awesome and so not what I was expecting. Damian and Kyle (sorry if I got that name wrong) were sensational hosts. They explained everything, from the sailing, spots visited, to facts about the wildlife. They were both informative and made everything very interesting. We had perfect weather, which meant not much sailing but the plus side was you could stay on deck the whole time. The boys kept everyone well feed and kept the food coming. Really enjoyed the snorkelling and visit to Whitehaven beach, plus night spotting fish was surprisingly interesting. The old ketch was very comfy and surprised with a hot tub. It was a wonderful experience.

Experience of a lifetime

This boating experience truly feels authentic! Coupled with the amazing beaches and activities, including snorkelling and kayaking, this trip is well worth the money. Comfortable ship with a great crew. Josh was an amazing host and tour guide and was very accommodating for a Celiac diet. Would recommend to anyone!

Had a great time at the Whitsundays with the Summertime crew. Josh and Damion were excellent and made our trip so much fun. Perfect balance of fun, relaxing and adventure. Went to Whitehaven beach first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds which was such a great idea as it got very busy as we were leaving. Thanks Summertime for such a great time! Will definitely be back!

It was perfect. The crew was so friendly and chilled! I’m a vegetarian and that was no problem, the food was very good, especially when you are a backpacker you will be thankful for some self made food like this. I loved the Kajak tour, I saw my first turtle out there und I really like the people on boart. In the evening we all watched the Sunset and had some beers and wine as well. Early in the morning I stand up to saw the sunrise and it was worth it! The whitheaven beach was unbelievable beautiful it was kind of a magic place I thought.
So all in all it was worth it! I would do it again if I could

If I could give them 10/5 I would. This is a cant miss tour! I’ve been in Australia almost a year doing so many excursions and this is THE ABSOLUTE BEST I mean you get the best experience you could ever dream. The capacity size is perfect, small enough for introverts (like me) and big enough for extroverts! The crew make you feel included in everything and I HIGHLY recommend staying with the crew member josh because he will spot and point out every little critter. In the two days on this trip I saw 2 dolphins, 3 lemon sharks, 1 reef shark, 20+ stingrays, 2 starfish, 5 shovelnose stingrays, a HUGE army of crabs, 2 turtles, a whole bunch of cool colourful fish and a GIANT clam (and I mean HUGE) all from staying with Josh! And that’s only the sea animals!! The boat is super fun to be on and I LOVED putting up the sail I felt very involved!! At the end of the day the crew points out constellations in the sky and giant fish and squid in the sea! If you want some instagram worthy photos the crew get ALL the best angles, Johnny and Josh both made sure I looked the best for my pictures and I absolutely adore them! They encourage you to the best of their abilities. The food is spectacular, like you get an actual BBQ experience and such a nice breakfast. FYI if you’re a solo traveler like me, the captain Dan will help put sunscreen on your back😅🤣 Dan and josh are also super smart, they tell you EVERYTHING which is awesome, names of animals, how the silica sand is made, and all about the history of the islands! This has been the most memorable trips of my life I’ll never forget it. I can’t thank you enough for having me on your tour and making me feel so included. 100% best tour trip in all of Australia no doubt about it! You will not regret booking, trust me

PS. Boys if you are reading this, thank you for getting me out of my comfort zone and making this amazing. You truly are incredible people, and I mean that with all my heart.

Best two days in Australia
Jan. 2020 • Solo
Summertime is an aircondition boat with good space and a warm jacuzzi and so lovely staff. Good food and good guided trips onboard. Sleep good also if you are a tall or big person. Can recommend this boat out of many others I heard about in Airlie Beach.
