Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a fantastic day out, we loved every minute of it. The snorkeling was lovely, especially when the sun shone down through the water. We saw lots of fish, coral and beautiful blue clams and we had plenty of time in the water. Our next stop was a bit of a walk up some steps to Hill Inlet Lookout. When you got to the top though, you were blown away by the amazing view, breathtaking and loads of photo opportunities. Next was Whitehaven Beach itself. We had lunch on the boat first, which was lovely and fresh and plenty of it. They also had ice cold alcoholic or soft drinks to buy at very reasonable prices. Then more swimming or lazing on the beach. They even had standup paddle boards for everyone to use. Stinger suits, snorkeling gear, pool noddles, pickup and drop off from you hotel, they have thought of everything. Adam and the two Rhys’s were a fantastic team, who really looked after us. We were always well informed about how much time we had at each stop and they made sure everyone stayed safe. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and would highly recommend this fantastic day out to anyone and everyone.

What started out as a very average day with the rain falling and the wind blowing even before we got on the boat. Turned into the most amazing experience.
The crew Luke Tom and Micko were absolutely fantastic and such fun. They really tried to make the most of the start of the day telling everyone on board, who were very sceptical, that the day would improve. Which it did, such an amazing place the trip was full of activities if you wanted, time to yourself if you wanted the day went so quickly, it was sad to leave it all behind. If you are in the Whitsundays
This is the best trip ever

Booked last minute recommended by GSL. $159 per person I thought was a little expensive as I have done a similar cruise for $99.

Inside 24hrs texted to confirm hotel pick up and time. All included in price. Great dietary requirements choice, and not disappointed by food onboard.

Emails received detail waiver, meeting points and departure time, standard inclusions and extras so read carefully. I think most forget towels.

Pool noodles are available for Non confident snorkelers/swimmer. We were tendered to and from beaches so know your physical limits for getting in and out. Four paddle boards available for use on Whitehaven. Tom, Jamie and Jimmy were great hosts.

It was a good experience overall, but get ready to spend a good amount on the boat to get to the reef. The operators were helpful and funny. I’ve requested a vegan lunch/breakfast and honestly my breakfast was ridiculous, I just got 3 small pieces of fruits. We just spent like 30 minutes at Whitehaven Lookout and it was very frustrating to not be able to enjoy the view longer (time to get up to the lookout + time to get down on the beach). Paddle boarding was really fun though. Snorkeling was great and operators made sure everyone was okay and safe. I would recommend staying on the reef for at least 2 days to not rush it and fully enjoying the beauty of those islands. But definitely an experience that I won’t forget

Today was a bucket list day for us and the guys on the Whitsunday Bullet couldn't have made the day any more perfect. Their friendly approach and professionalism made it a fun and safe day out. The boat rode well in the sometimes choppy water. There was no sign of sea sickness from the 35 guests on board. We had a mixture of weather from very cloudy to chinks of sun light, spots of rain, and occasional patches of blue sky. The beauty of the area can be fully appreciated from what you experience on this 8 hour tour. The care and concern for every passenger, making sure they're safe and having fun makes this smaller, but very fast, boat a fantastic way to visit Whitehaven Beach, snorkel and experience the Whitsundays.

Wow, we loved this day trip, starting with snorkelling and seeing the coral and fish, followed by an easy walk to the lookout with such amazing views. Josh gave a very knowledgeable talk here and looked after everyone really well. Lunch at Whitehaven Beach what a superb place! We tried the stand up paddle boards and had a swim in the warm waters. We recommend Whitsunday Bullett because this boat is made for these waters, what a great captain who took us around Hamilton Island on the way back. Such a nice crew who looked after everyone so well. Comfortable boat and no pretence. #whitsundaybullet

Snorkeling was a first for my kids, 8yo and 12yo, both very nervous swimmers however there were life jackets and noodles to help them feel safe. This was the highlight of the trip, being able to swim with tropical fish in the wild. The hill inlet look out provided some spectacular views and the free time on the beach at the end was the best beach we’ve swam at - warm clear waters with small fish in shallow waters. Reece and Pinky and our skipper all very informative and welcoming and made sure everyone was having a good time. I highlight recommend!

From the moment you book your trip to the second you step foot off, you are treated with warm Tropical Queensland hospitality from the staff at Explore Whitsunday. The tour ticks off the Whitsunday to do list ~ The picturesque sights at Hill Inlet lookout are something else, pics at Dead tree for insta, paddle boarding at the iconic Whitehaven beach and finished off with snorkeling. Apart from the gorgeous views, luxury of soaking up and paddling on the blue waters, and having the tough decision on what pics to load up on Instagram, it is the onboard crew that top the trip. A big thanks to Micko, Pinky and Reece you certainly made us laugh and feel extremely welcome on board the Whitsunday Bullet. We will certainly recommend this trip to all of our friends and no doubt come back and do it all again.

We booked a 2 day trip (day 1 - Whitehaven beach and snorkelling) day 2 was through a different cruise company out the the Pontoon for snorkeling.
My family and I all agreed that the Whitehaven was so much better by far. Luke and Ruth were amazing guides and entertainers, full of energy, enthusiasm and really couln't do enough for us all.
We started with a trip to the lookout, a little stroll on the beach before we were whisked around to south beach for a few hours where we had lunch, swam and soaked up the crystal clear water. We were then taken to an area for snorkeling.

We managed to pack more in on this trip without it feeling too crammed and rushed. We cannot wait to do it again and will be booking through Whitsunday Bullet.

Went on the full day Whitehaven Beach and snorkeling trip with the family. It was a really good day. We got it on special for about $159 per Adult which is significantly less than The Whitsunday Cruise company.
Whitehaven Beach is beautiful, and the snorkeling is ok. It’s not the offshore reef however so don’t expect it to blow your mind.
The boat is fast and comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful. Lunch and snacks were provided and were ok. Maybe a little more could have been an improvement.
I would suggest that they look at rigging up a ladder from the from of the boat, as messing around loading and unloading all passengers in the small dinghy for a 10meter trip is a waste of time.
Overall well worth it.
