Fun, fast cruise around the Whitsunday Islands. All in one day visit world famous Whithaven Beach, then it's off to a pristine snorkelling reef off of another island, a delicious picnic lunch served right on the beach, afternoon snacks, entertaining and educational crew commentary throughout the day. Fun from start to finish!

First of all i am totally aware of the fact that cyclone Debbie must have had a huge impact on Airlie Beach, and the Whitsundays. But in my opinion this is just a big opportunity to prove yourself as a company! In my opinion it went wrong on the day we bought the daytour in the office. We were given... More

A great all day trip for all the family, perhaps more so than some of the other tours of this nature. This was post-cyclone Debbie. These guys are open for business and I would highly recommend it. The food provided was very good and the availability of toilets very useful. Thanks Matty and Lachie!

Very good casual day in and around the Whitsunday Islands. All the staff were friendly, engaging from the moment we were picked up at your hotel. The boat crew (local skipper and mate) were great, telling us all about the local flora and fauna of islands and few gems only they would know. I think the back of the boat... More
