We had a beautiful day yesterday with 3islands. The crew is really friendly and knowledgeable. They also have a lot of fun together, which creates a nice atmosphere. We were in a boat with 20 tourists in total, and positively surprised how they make sure everyone has enough time to swim with the beautiful whale sharks. We saw 2 different ones and had four swims in total.
We loved that they were also very conscious about the environment and removed fishing hooks or something when came across. There is a photographer with the group who really went out of his way to make amazing pictures of everyone onboard, together with the whalesharks and other amazing stuff we came across. Afterwards you get all the pictures on a CD, which is included in the price.

Went out in the draw card! From the start of the day to the end of the day was so amazing! We had the pleasure of being with Georgia, Taylor jack and tricky and old mate nossy! Mentioned that I was afraid of sharks and stingrays and they did a great job comforting me even though towards the end we saw a tiger shark I honestly couldn’t fault this. It’s easily the best thing I’ve ever done in my life and I will recommend three islands to everyone I know that’s coming here!!

Thank Toby W

Wow. All I can say is long may you continue offering this level of service. We had an absolute blast from beginning to end. All the team were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The food all day; from fruit to lunch was first class. The whale sharks were calm, serene and majestic. Thank you. A once in a lifetime experience.

My boyfriend and I went out on the drawcard yesterday. This was easily the best trip I have ever been on. The crew are fantastic and have everything you need for the day. The pre-whale shark snorkelling was brilliant, we saw reef tip sharks, octopus, sting rays and green sea turtles.
We were fortunate enough to get to swim alongside 3 different whale sharks. It was better than I had expected, getting to spend time with the whale sharks not just a quick glimpse.
I highly recommend this once in a lifetime experience! Hopefully we will be back for humpback season!!

My friend and i came on this tour and weren’t sure if we would even see whale sharks as it was just the start of the season! The crew were all so lovely and friendly and willing to help everyone out! You could tell they all love their jobs! The experience to swim with whale sharks was just amazing, there are just no words for swimming with such gentle giants. The hardest part was trying to film with my go pro while keeping certain distances away from the whale shark and snorkelling in the middle of the ocean.. the ladies always helped if you were getting off track though which was awesome! The tour included a snorkel to test your gear out and then have morning tea, i think we then had about 5/6 turns to swim with the whale sharks and then we had lunch and got another turn at snorkelling in the reef. Overall was such an amazing experience and would do it again! The only thing i can say is make sure to bring a go pro if you want video footage as there wasn’t any video footage provided but the photos provided by aimee were amazing. Thanks everyone for an amazing day!
