Amazing day tour on the Southern Cross! Luke and Damo were wonderful on board, friendly and approachable at all times, with clear competency in their jobs. Sailing through this area was a dream, with beautiful weather and spectacular views everywhere you looked. Snorkelling over Langford Reef was a great end to the day, and it was very special to sail right back into the harbour- outstripping other boats along the way. For the price we paid, we had a wonderful time, and I've been recommending it to all of my friends in the area!

We did the Whitsunday Bullet tour and had an amazing time. Very professional, accommodating and knowledge able staff. We loved that you got to spend lots of time at the beaches to swim, snorkel, paddle board and explore. Was also nice having snacks and lunch provided. Would definitely recommend this.

Good morning Steph Thank you for taking the time out of your holiday to send us a review. Whitsunday Bullet, being a fast catamaran means you get ample time at each stop. We are glad you enjoyed your day and made use of the stand-up paddleboards! Thank you so much for choosing us and we hope to see you again soon! The Explore Whitsundays team

My husband and I went on the 3 night trip onboard the Whitsunday Blue and really enjoyed it. The crew Aaron and Amber did an awesome job in all aspects and were very friendly and professional. Aaron took us to some stunning locations for great snorkelling and catered to the group’s needs. Amber never disappointed in the cooking department and made the simple food always taste delicious. Agree with a previous post that the boat seems to need a little maintenance and love. Aircon only worked first night and then didn't work. Need to be prepared that you are staying in a smallish cabin, it was expected but we still needed to adjust. We had lovely couples onboard with us and with the awesome crew made for a great memorial holiday.

My partner and I went on the "ADVENTURER" 2 night boat tour. It was one of the best holidays we have had. Dan and Laney...Thank you so much!! You both made our adventure such an amazing one. Snorkeling with the huge fish was something we will never forget, to see the coral and sitting on the front of the boat in the pool. We sailed around the islands, visited whitehaven and went paddleboarding. The rest of the guests were also amazing and we feel like we made friends for a long time! Definitely a must for any adventure seeking couple, friends or family!

Good morning Loren Thank you for taking the time out of your holiday to leave us this great review! Our crew are very passionate about sailing and in making sure they provide excellent customer service. One of the highlights of travelling onboard Adventurer is meeting like-minded guests which, like your situation can become life long friends. We are so glad you enjoyed snorkelling and the spa at the front is very popular! Thank you so much for choosing us and we hope to see you again soon! The Explore Whitsundays team
