Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our journey with Ocean Rafting out of Airlie Beach was absolutely splendid!

    The company rearranged our reservation due to weather without cost and were helpful and friendly throughout the whole day.

    It was a bit bumpy on our boat ride out to Whitsunday Island but absolutely beautiful. After a short hike (easily walked in flip flops) on the island to some gorgeous lookouts we headed back on the boat to anchor by a beach for lunch.

    The seagulls created quite a nuisance, but pool noodles, provided by the crew, helped keep them at bay while we ate our lunch, relaxed on the beach, and swam in the water.

    Then we got back on the boat to head to our snorkel spot. We saw so many unique coral and fish.

    When it was time to go it started raining but our crew, Chris and Emily, kept everyone comfortable and happy.

    Our bumpy and wild ride back was full of lovely views, fun music, and laughter.

    I would recommend this tour for anyone wanting to explore Whitsunday!

    We really recommend doing these jetski tours, us two sisters really enjoyed this experience. We normally don't do adrenaline/ adventure activities, but the team were supportive, safety conscious, and gave us a great tour of the Whitsundays. We had so much fun, it was beautiful, we had a swim and saw a turtle. It was great chatting to the other people on our tour, including our guide.
    Shout out to Ollie who led our group xx (enjoy your beer).

    We booked a cruise with Whitsunday ferry to Hamilton Island.
    The terminal is amazing and our checkin girl was lovely. So friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I forgot her name.
    The ferry itself needs a renovation. Its a bit rundown. Even the Radoms which protect the radar from the elements was broken in 2 pieces.
    Staff didnt explain very well where the swimvest were stored. Everything was over the microphone and very hard to understand.
    There is selfserve for tea and coffee on board.
    We took the ferry via Daydream island.
    The trip itself was great, lovely scenery with blue water. Picture perfect. We would do the trip anytime again if we are back in the area. If you signed up with Turtle Club you get a discounted rate on the fare.

    I went on the Spank Me boat and it was great fun. Very sociable but chill. We went to the best snorkeling spots and our skipper Alex did everything to make sure we had the best experience. Kate and Vikki were the crew and they were so lovely and made sure we were well fed and looked after, they went above and beyond for us. Alex had lots of interesting information to share with us. Some people went to bed at 9pm some stayed up until after 12 chatting and quietly listening to music on deck having a few cans, not a party boat, it’s a more relaxed atmosphere. I would highly recommend it. We went snorkeling 3 or 4 times in different locations. Slept really well on the boat too after all the sea air and healthy food.

    We got caught in a storm on the way back, which was memorable and fun. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the coral.

    This experience was AWESOME. Definitely a top experience of a life time. Loved the flight and views, we went early morning in July so even caught some whales! Then did the ocean raft and crew was awesome, loved the snorkeling, boat, beach time and we even caught more whales playing! Such an awesome experience all around. Didn’t catch the pilots name but he was great. For the raft and snorkel, Hailey, Taylor and Benny did fantastic. Great crew and time! Thank you!

    This was a total surprise and I am 100% glad I went on this one. Beautiful scenery, stunning beach, learnt about marine turtles and had a delicious burger and milkshake at the Diner. Totally one of the best little places in the Whitsundays .

    Views were absolutely stunning, crew were so lovely and helpful, and they kept us informed about the history/ significance of each location.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the Great Barrier Reef. Started the day being picked up at Airlie Beach. Our route took us to Hamilton Island for a second pickup before we were whisked away to the pontoon at Hardy Reef. Along the way we got some great views of the Whitsunday Islands and were even lucky to see some Whales. On the reef I took a whizz around the reef in the glass bottom boat (free) before doing my main activity which was a guided snorkel of the reef wall (about 89 AUD). The guide (Sunny) was very knowledgeable and informative about the reef and it was a great experience. I didn't opt to try the free snorkel area so can't comment. As an overall review, the activities were fun, food provided was good, it was a real experience. Downsides were it is a lot of sailing time (circa 3 hours out to the reef, 4 hours play time and 3 hours back) and the underwater photos, whilst good, were a bit expensive. I paid 91 AUD for 5 photos. They do offer a Go Pro that you can hire for the day and take as many pictures as you like for 80 AUD, this may have been a better option. Also should say as a first time snorkeller felt safe and taken care of throughout

    Cannot recommend enough!! We had a fantastic day out on the Proserpine River followed by a delicious bbq, another tour of the wetlands where we saw wallabies and beautiful birds and finally tea & damper. Stewie was so knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. If you plan on visiting Airlie or the Whitsundays, definitely consider making a trip to the Proserpine River for this Croc Safari!
