Excellent day out taking in hill inlet lookout, Whitehaven beach, snorkelling or glass bottom boat and day dream island. Plenty of time at each location. Great friendly staff who made everything so easy. Snacks, refreshments and lunch throughout the day was very good. One of the best boat trips I have ever been on!!! If you want to do the Whitsundays do this trip. 3 trips in one.

The three island cruise was amazing. Whitehaven Beach - beautiful white sand, great views and crystal clear waters. Due to the wind we didn't get to Bali Hai Island but instead got to snorkel at Langford Reef then a cruise over to Daydream Island. The cruise boat was spacious and comfortable. Staff were friendly, knowledgable, extremely safety conscientious and helpful. I was particularly impressed with the inflatables on hand in the water with the snorkellers "just in case". The food was good and available through out the entire cruise from the moment we stepped aboard. And ... to finish the day complimentary Tequila Sunrises were available on the short trip from Daydream Island back to Shute Harbour.

Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your time with us exploring the Whitsundays. Langford Reef is an awesome site, and a good alternative to beautiful Bali Hai. Our crew will always choose the best site for the weather conditions, to give you the best experience of the amazing Whitsundays possible. Should you return to the Whitsundays please join us again, no 2 days on the water are the same!

There are so many cruises to chose from we picked this one as it covered 3 islands, there was a choice of snorkelling or the glass bottom boat. We went to the Whitsunday Islands to see the beautiful white sands, it is really as they say the sand is so fine and white they reckon the best in the world. Fantastic views from the lookout, then walking on the sand it was beautiful. We went back to the boat where they supplied a buffet lunch, really nice, there was also tea , coffee, cake and biscuits all day from the time you got on the boat. Next stop was to a reef where you could go on the glass bottom boat or snorkelling, we chose the boat as we're not into snorkelling it was great. After spending time their,time for more food you won't go hungry, last stop Daydream island, lots of small kangaroos on the Island very tamest if you come from overseas good chance to see kangaroos also had a living coral display with sting rays, small sharks, some colourful fish, star fish. On the island you could enjoy the facilities,pool, etc. great day really enjoyed it what also made the day were all the crew on the boat everyone was so helpful and informative at the end they line up to wave goodbye. Definately would recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. So glad we could accommodate your needs with the glass bottom boat. We are the only operator in the area that offers Whitehaven and a glass bottom boat tour on the same day. So glad you chose us to share some of the wonders of the Whitsundays with you. Thank you.

This tour goes to three islands! We started with a stop on Bali Hi Island where we had 2 hours snorkelling time. A great spot to snorkel and see colourful fish and coral. We then made our way to Whitehaven - little dinghies take you ashore in Tongue Bay. We had two hours which was plenty of time to take pictures on the look out and spend time on Betty's beach in the inlet. The last stop was Daydream island where you can walk around the rainforest, have a dip in the pool, or sip on cocktails and relax! Overall it was a great day out and we never felt rushed. The crew are very friendly and attentive, and the food was very good and generous!
Very comfortable boat and loads of fun!
