This was honestly a highlight of a trip recently completed. If I could, I would fly back from Canada just to do this full day sail again. We sailed out in the morning to a mostly secluded island which was stunning. Snorkeled until lunch. After...More

Great day trip to the reef, Louisa and Blake made everyone feel welcome and relaxed. We would recommend Sailaway for those that prefer a more personal experience to the reef with smaller groups. If that’s you put them on your list.

Lovely boat and great helpful staff. Enjoyable snorkelling, saw a number of turtles, reef sharks and many many fish. The bleaching of the coral is very sad but a timely reminder to us all.

Had a wonderful time on the Sailaway sunset cruise. Great way to spend an hour and a half and have a couple drinks and appetizers before dinner. Great value for the cost and would definitely recommend.

The staff on the boat was Great! Sadly they cannot control the bleaching and destruction of the coral. The boat only goes out to a nearby island where the coral and fish are meh. If you are comfortable in the water try ABC.
