We booked the island hopper ticket which took us to daydream island and Hamilton island. It was a lot of money for all it was - a ferry to two pretty average islands. Maybe it was the weather but we felt there wasn't much to do on either of the islands. The beaches were very average. The highlight was cocktails at the one tree hill lookout. It was good to see the two islands however I won't be returning.

5 star. Trip was amazing. Captain did an incredible job in very rough conditions. The crew were extremely helpful and great fun both on the beach and on the boat. WeAther wasn't the greatest, but we still had a fantastic time. Whitehaven beach is a must do. Muffins very yummy and free Use of stinger suits a great surprise inclusion.

The down side was crummy weather, rain and wind in the dry season. Reef world and Reef Sleep isn't designed for those days.

The upside is the location and the staff. The staff are brilliant. Nothing's too much hassle, they are friendly, informed and helpful. I learnt so much about the reef. Our Reef world host was Skye and she and the guys on board honestly made it their mission to be both unobtrusive and look after our every need at the same time. The food was good. Having Reefworld to ourselves after the day trippers left and before they arrived was wonderful. The Swags are basic but comfortable. The hot shower is a blessing. We got to dive and snorkel before the day trippers arrived and that was the highlight. The Dive instructors were brilliant with new divers and I really gained a lot of confidence. The facilities are basic, think dive boat, but you really have all you need!

Even in bad weather the trip was worth the money and time.

Reef world had a lot of variety for the family. The semisubmersible was a great way to see the reef without getting wet as was the underwater room on the pontoon itself. Snorkling was fun as was my husbands first experience with diving. Would like to have seen some help with the snorkling equipment. We did the semisub first and by the time we were ready to Snorkle no one was helping with wetsuits and snorkels. This is the only real option to see the reef in the Mackay region, so we were appreciative of the opportunity.

Modern catamaran vessel was fun, although often felt a bit busy. Whitsundays were amazing, especially Whitehaven Beach that lived up to its billing as one of the ten best beaches in the world. Snorkelling on a reef was disappointing but then this is not a trip to the Great Barrier Reef as such but a cruise round the islands.
