We have just returned from a fabulous three night four day trip on the Blizzard boat sailing round the whitsunday islands. Captained by Sam with his deck hand Armin, we have had a fabulous experience taking in amazing reefs with great snorkelling, secluded coves inaccessible with the larger tour companies and drop offs at beaches few can get to. Our morning at Whitehaven beach was simply mind blowing. We were lucky to be accompanied by 8 other like minded guests, hungry to witness the wonder of this beautiful part of the world. Having an experienced ocean master as your your guide instils confidence. Cool, calm and collected, Sam was a first class skipper, knowledgeable, interesting and resourceful. The food provided from the kitchen gantry was first class whether it breakfast, lunch or dinner! Blizzard as an ocean going 15 metered single hull yacht was perfect for our adventure. We saw amazing fish and reef made possible by Sam. I can’t recommend this experience enough! First class in every way! Safety was at heart at every brief he gave, whether relating to the mandatory wearing of stinger suits when entering the water, the tide movements impacting your movement in the water, and the locations for our overnight stops! If you want to experience Whitsundays, Blizzard is the way!
