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!

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.

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!

I couldn't recommend the Summertime enough. Especially if you're a bit shorter on time and can't do the 2 or 3 night tours. You get two full days and experience all the greats bits Whitsundays has to offer.

Our skippers, Daniel and Damien, were really good fun. The food was really good throughout the whole trip with plenty of snacks! The group was a really good size (can imagine it gets a little crowded on boats with more people), and we were really lucky with the people on board as everyone was really friendly. There was a mix of couples, families and groups of friends.

The Whitsundays were as incredible as the pictures look. Damien also took us on a guided kayak and we saw some sharks and actually saw a Mantaray fly out of the water which was incredible. Others saw a turtle whilst snorkelling.

Don't hesitate to book!

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.

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

A sensational sailing adventure in the Whitsundays. Our picture postcard weather was complimented by the exceptional crew - Captain Dave, and super hosts Emily and Tess! Thanks for making our 50th birthday so special. Highlight was swimming with George! We can’t wait to come back!

Went on the 2 day cruise around the whitsunday islands, brilliant crew Amy and Jesse always there if we ever needed them. I'm fussy when it comes to food but the food was so good! Very chilled out ideal for couples/single travellers got to meet some brilliant people on board from all around the world. And of course the stunning beach, kayaking and snorkeling speak for themselves!

We have really enjoyed our time on summertime. The crew was entertaining and took care of everything, we enjoyed good food and of course the beautiful Whitsundays. There was enough time at the stops (e.g. time at Whitehaven Beach, snorkeling, kayaking) and overall a nice atmosphere.

Enjoyed every bit of the journey on Summertime. We were lucky to have good weather and a fantastic crew. We saw dolphins, mantaray, turtles and heaps of fish. The sunset was breathtaking. Thank you for a fantastic time.
