    An incredible experience!
    Loved every second of my time on Apollo. The boat was great, the crew were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and the snorkeling and beach visit were truly bucket list experiences. Great food and refreshing snacks provided. Wish the trip could have lasted longer, would definitely recommend! Thank you Andrew, Cam, Andy and Dom:)

    10/10 experience!
    Our time sailing the whitsundays aboard the apollo was absolutely amazing! The crew were so friendly and fun, they really made sure that we made the most of our time on board! From snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef to seeing the iconic white haven beach it really was some of the best days of my life! ( the food was also 10/10) Massive thanks to Andrew, Cam, Andy and Dom for making this such an incredible experience for us all!

    Amazing
    I’ve just had the pleasure of returning from a 5 day diving trip on kiana what can I say but truely amazing and the best experience ever !!! Jack the dive instructor is so knowledgeable and made me feel very at ease, we went to some amazing sights and the outer reef was breath taking so many different species of fish and coral formations !! Charley looked after us and was constantly serving us delicious food and Brent the captain made it all happen . I wouldn’t hesitate to book a trip on kiana you won’t be disappointed

    The best way to experience the true beauty of this area.
    Amazing way to experience the Whitsundays. Highly recommend. Great crew, food and activities. Sleeping on the boat under the stars was magical. Not recommended if you need a lot of privacy as you are sleeping on a yacht with other travellers in close quarters. I found it comfortable and nobody snored so all good for me!

    Amazing experience. So glad we booked a smaller 13 person boat over the party boats. You actually got a sailing experience along with the Whitsunday experience. Amazing food, Malcom and Tom were just great too. Would book again.

    Great sailing adventure
    Had a great time snorkeling, sailing and hanging out on beaches. The deck hands: Andy, Jess, Phil and the skipper Andrew all worked extremely hard to ensure we had the best time possible and cooked some great meals, I had such a good time!

    Had an amazing time on my time on the Apollo. The crew was great, we were fed very well (always enough for seconds). Met so many lovely people, hit about 5 snorkeling spots and 2 bush walks, beach time at Whitehaven, and hang time in the evening.

    Amazing Apollo
    I had very high expectations before this trip, this experience didn’t just live up to those high expectations it exceeded them! The crew, boat, locations, food and people could not have been better. The only thing I disliked about the Apollo was that I had to come to an end! I couldn’t recommend it more!

    Great time on the apollo
    Amazing time on the Apollo! Great balance of snorkelling, seeing beaches & coves as well as drinking and partying. The spots we visited were beautiful and we were often the only group there! Good food and plenty of it. Special mention to Andy who was so kind and positive - really made our trip!

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!

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!

My trip on Summertime was great! The food was delicious (and frequent) and Izzy did an awesome job leading all the activities. It was a perfect two day trip with the right balance between activities and rest time on the boat. The air conditioned cabin also made for comfortable sleeping environment and you could tell the crew really wanted us to have the best experience. Thanks for a great trip!

We finished the 2 night catamaran sailing trip on the Entice Boat and we can honestly say it has been the highlight of our trip to Australia. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to see everything we did on the trip whilst amongst great company of the others on the boat. Captain Dave was brilliant and took us to the most amazing places where we got to swim with turtles and see lots of fish and beautiful coral reef. Simone cooked for us each day and every meal was simply delicious! We got into Whitehaven beach nice and early which was great for getting photos before it got too crowded. Every place we went we got to spend a good amount of time at to enjoy it. Both Dave and Simone were so lovely and nothing was any bother for them so a massive thank you to them for making our trip so unforgettable! Would highly recommend this to anyone!

Thanks for your great recommendation and its awesome to know that this was the highlight of your visit to Oz. Dave's knowledge and experience always ensures that you get to the best spots. The Whitsundays' has a lot to offer and its amazing to hear that you saw so much in such a short time.

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

Would have been nice to have fit more activities in, 2 hours on kayaks felt a bit long but the snorkeling was pretty cool. Food was very good and varied with plenty of options for those with dietary requirements. Staff were nice but overall atmosphere was pretty mediocre if you’re a backpacker. It was sightseeing oriented, which was great, but would have benefited from something more lively. However would recommend it to families or those looking for a quieter experience.

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!
