Amazing experiences and awesome crew.

Not only were we impressed with the sights we've been shown, but we really enjoyed the crew on Zigzag as well as our pilot, Christian's company. They were all professional, fun and very knowledgeable. Loved that they promoted supporting other tourist businesses too.

Couldn’t not rate this trip higher. They deserved 100 stars! The team was so well organised, bubbly and friendly! The boat was so comfortable and the crew made it such a fun ride. We constantly stopped to sea marine life like whales and dugongs before we got to our snorkelling spot! Best snorkelling ever!! It was such a highlight of my trip getting to see the Whitsundays islands by boat! Provided lunch and snacks so we did not go hungry! Now to the reef flight! Talk about best day of my life! This is a must do, and for 60mins this is the most affordable flight! It was like nothing I’ve ever seen before or in photos! The view of the islands and the reef from the sky was second to none. I can’t thank the team enough! I’d definitely do it again!
