Amazing! Really awesome crew who really want to be there (on the boat trip).. the destination was magical. Felt totally safe snorkelling with my six year old.. He loved the sub, and the underwater cinema... The lunch was excellent. The day is highly recommended!

Spent a fantastic day cruising on the Camira, snorkling and swimming at Whitehaven Beach. Unfortunately it was stinger season so we all had to wear suits, but it was great nonetheless. The crew were all very helpful and personable, especially Jim and Malcolm. All in all we enjoyed great company, stunning scenery, great food and a wonderful day out in... More

The only cruise that seems to take you around Whitsunday Islands. A bit tiring having to start early from Port of Airlie Due to multiple pick ups. With regards to service, the staff weren't particularly friendly inspite of the skipper's mentioning; the advertising of friendly service seemed a bit forced. Then again, staff friendly varied from boat to boat due... More

We went on a cruise to a private pontoon in the open water near the Barrier Reef and the crew onboard were really professional, friendly and fun and made our trip... More

We did a Cruise Whitsundays trip to the Great Barrier Reef. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth it. The high speed trimaran was comfortable, and the staff that ran the trip were first class. There were a lot of them on the boat, and they were very attentive throughout the day. The 40 mile trip out to the reef... More
