Fantastic experience!

The crew aboard this day trip were amazing and ensured we had a fantastic day! We got to see wonderful coral and marine life. I've been on a few days trips in the Whitsundays over the years and this rates as one of my favourites!

A must do tour!

The trip from beginning to end was fun. The snorkelling is something that you can’t pass up when you're in the heart of the reef. To be so up close and personal is an exciting feeling. Skipper Luke and his lovely team were friendly and had lots of information to share.

Awesome Zig Zag Full Day

Didn’t realise I’d booked a speed boat cruise.. soo glad we did!!! I injured my ankle the day before so had to hobble but was soo well looked after getting on, off and around the boat. Whitehaven beautiful! Long Island leisurely. Lunch delicious. Look forward to to going again! Thank-you!!!
