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.

Spent an amazing afternoon with Frank and team on board Ricochet, a beautiful 43’ catamaran based at Hamilton Island. My wife and I did the sunset sail tour which was perfect, Frank was a great skipper and we thoroughly enjoyed cruising around the islands. Highly recommended and can’t wait to come back and do the half day sail.

Top class trip! If you come to Hamilton Island this is the sailing trip to take. Zach and Amelia from Lymington made this such a special day. Sailing doesn’t get better than this. Thank you.
We didn’t want the day to end!

Fantastic excursion! We booked the half day trip. Thoroughly recommended - a great way to see more of the spectacular Whitsundays. We were blessed with good weather and in seeing whales and dolphins as we travelled to Whitehaven Bay. Then we enjoyed snorkelling with turtles off Chalkies beach followed by a beer or two at Whitehaven beach. James and Hannah looked after us really well. Lunch and drinks were excellent

Our family & friends group of 6 had the most wonderful time on RIcochet! We did the full day cruise to Chalkies Beach for superb snorkeling - lots of fish, baby clams and healthy coral. Then, after a sumptuous lunch, on to the northern part of world famous Whitehaven beach with its pristine white sand and crystal clear water. we walked to Hill Inlet look out for the most fabulous views over the swirling sandy inlet, then down to the beach for a swim and relax. On the way home we were treated to a spectacular sunset sail as the perfect way to round our a perfect day. Ricochet is a small, luxury catamaran with personalised service, nothing is too much trouble for the crew. This trip is highly recommended!

We had an excellent Sunset cruise, and then came back for a part day cruise 2 days later, to Whitehaven Beach and Chalky’s.
In a word, faultless.
Frank (who was also the owner) was an excellent skipper, very laid back, but clear and confident.
He and wonderful Hannah made us feel relaxed on board the very swish catamaran”Ricochet”.
Free flowing drinks, and great food. It is a beautiful boat, and a brilliant way to see the islands around Hamilton. Absolutely worth it. Thanks for an excellent time.

Best day out on Ricochet Yacht, we snorkeled at Chalkies then went to Whitehaven to relax, swim and drink champagne. Great relaxed skipper and crew made the day so enjoyable, we cannot wait to do it all again next year.

I would like to extend a big thanks to team at Ricochet following our day out on the beautiful catamaran on Saturday! We had an amazing day and were extremely appreciative of the attentiveness, friendliness and professionalism of your staff Jimmy and Pierre, they made for a magic experience. Exploring Whitehaven, Chalkies Beaches, Hill Inlet, snorkelling and having a relaxing time on the yacht, best day ever!

Thanks again, hopefully we get the opportunity to get out on Ricochet again!

We booked a full day & sunset tour with the Ricochet team. Frank and Pierre were an absolute delight, we both really enjoyed chatting and getting to know them. Fortunately we were only a group of 6 and the other two couples were lovely too. We had such a fun day! Huge thanks to Pierre for giving us a heads up about the secret beach over the rocks - the pictures speak for themselves! Everything was incredibly well organised and thought out. The boat is absolutely immaculate and the service was second to none. Thank you so much.
