Had a great family day. Whitehaven Express easily and happily catered for my gluten free son. Captain Shane took some great pictures of our family and happily passed them on. Would highly recommend this company for a fun family day out.

Hi, glad you enjoyed the pictures and that your family had a great time. We try our best to deliver value for money especially when kids add extra, but it is all worth it if everyone has a great family day out! Cheers, Capt Shane

Initially a bit hesitant in the things which were offered. After the snorkelling a very good BBQ. A very interesting hike to a viewpoint on the largest island. Magnificent views. A manta ray spotted and at distance some whales. All in all good
