Our family of four booked a fishing trip through the Hamilton Island Watersports centre, which turned out to be the worst we've ever experienced. Our boat, the Predator, was faulty, complete with a sensor that beeped the entire time the boat was in operation. Our guides were inexperienced to say the least. When we first arrived, I asked the guide... More

We recently spent 5 days on Hamilton Island, three of which had poor weather conditions with wind and rain. We booked a full day tour to whitehaven and hook inlet with water sports on the last day of our trip which was sunny and clear skies. Turned up at 9am on the morning of our tour to have a lady...

We went parasailing, doing tandem flights with our 8,11 & 13 year olds. It was a fantastic experience and everyone is very keen to do it again.

The customer service here is just appalling and it turned out to be the worst part of our trip. 1. I understand that Watersports might have a minimum number of people to go ahead with the activity but it should be possible for customers to cancel without a fee if there aren't enough participants for the activity to go ahead...

We booked an afternoon trip on Reef Ryder to Whitehaven and Chalkies and loved it. We felt like we were in good hands. The scenery was amazing as we zipped through the islands to reach Whitehaven and Chalkies. Following a swim at Whitehaven we then visited Chalkies Beach which is close by and snorkelled. This ended up being the highlight... More

Also hired a go pro... More

We only had three days in Hamilton Island so decided on the half day snorkelling Chalkies Beach and Whitehaven Beach experience. Best decision ever! We had perfect conditions. The staff were friendly, helpful, relaxed. The boat ride was smooth and quick. I would highly recommend this tour if time is limited. However next time, we are hoping to do the... More

When looking for a 1/2 day trip to white haven beach we came across this companies brochure showing the very picturesque white have beach and sand bars. We were looking for a smaller boat and not a large group so we booked with this group. The staff was very nice but we didn't get to the part of white haven... More

Lovely friendly guys on the desk on the main beach of Hamilton Island. We hired a SUP board one day and a kayak the next. They were very generous with times and happy to oblige by giving me another few minutes (free) the next day to take photo's.
