The overnight Whitsunday sailing adventure with Alexander Stewart was an amazing experience! It was the best part of my East Australia trip! Very friendly crew, good food, a lot of snorkeling. We saw colorful fish and coral and even sharks later in the evening. A recommender!

Go the girls. This sailing vessel is manned by an all girl crew and they made the day excellent. Nice and relaxing sailing out to our snorkelling point in the Whitsunday Islands. We were well informed, given clear instructions and felt very safe in their capable hands. Just a great day and the onboard marine biologist gave an excellent talk about the Great Barrier Reef. Thanks ladies for a memorable day.

If your looking to get away from the crowds, sail on a historic tall ship and do a little snorkelling then this is the excursion I would recommend. The crew were great, kept us entertained with stories and facts and were very accommodating. Great for families too who have children. And price is well within reasonable. Highly recommended!

We spent the day with the Eco Tall Ships Adventure around the Whitsunday Islands on the Derwent Hunter schooner, a 22m timber tall ship. We got to snorkel around the inner Great Barrier Reef before spending the rest of the day sailing around the Islands. It was a simply amazing day.

An amazing adventure, the staff were friendly, helpful & very organised. Food was good and the snorkelling was great for my first time. Would recommend to anyone wanting something a bit different. Got to be hands on with the sails & anyone was able to steer the ship with staff being there for assistance. Would do it again
