We had an amazing day snorkelling & scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef 🙌 The staff were so kind, friendly, accommodating & even went out of their way to get 'instagram worthy photos' as they called it, for us 😊 We saw some beautiful fish, being in that crystal blue water is awesome & just to know you are on the great barrier reef is amazing! The food was delicious. We loved that they used the trip out there to go through the safety procedures etc, wasting no time when we arrived. We got a couple of the professional photos aswel which were amazing! A definite must do 😁

I’d just like to thank everyone at ReefSleep for the incredible proposal my now fiancé organised (with your help and suggestions). The crew did such an amazing job and gave us the most incredible memory. It started with an underwater dinner and as dessert came, a few scuba divers appeared at the window with a sign that read ‘Will you marry me?’ and my now fiancé got on one knee. I honestly can’t thank these guys enough. We’re already planning on coming back for our one year anniversary!

Traveled to Whitehaven with Whitsunday cruises from Hamilton Island during November 2021. The whole experience was fantastic, the crew very helpful and professional. The beach itself is incredible and really lives up to all the hype. It really should be on your bucket list.

An qmazing experience with a high quality customer service!! You sleep on a glam swag on a small pontoon in the middle of the great barrier reef, watching the sunset, sunrise, moon, stars, turtles, corals, fish... listening to the sound of the waves and the wind, eating delicious food and pampered by a lovely and professional host (the amazing Summah!) ! This 1 day and a half felt like 3 days of pure rest and healthy energy. I've snorkel 4 times, the reef is so beautiful, and the "snorkel safari tour" gives you the opportunity to discover a part of the reef more "private" and have extra comments about the life under water. The staff in general from the boat to the pontoon make the experience even more unforgettable. They are all so nice, bubbly, caring. I've done the experience solo, and It was a pleasure to chat with lovely guests and staff. Thank you Cruise Whitundays for one of my best experience this year.
