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

Tour was on the fast boat, had an hour snorkling at Chalkies Beach then an hour on Whitehaven, supplied free softdrink and water, snorkling gear, floaty noodles, stinger suits if you wanted - good value, thanks Ben and Tom. 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.

Not sure where to make this review, maybe here?? We hired a half day dinghy, had a fabulous time putting around the passage. Husband and I caught three great coral trout, saw turtles, action never stopped. Great afternoon out, would highly recommend, gave a little freedom on the water. Fishing gear to hire too!

We did the half day Reef Ryder trip to Chalkies and Whitehaven beaches The trip out was windy and a little rough but we all loved the action. Our “captain” was pretty good at avoiding the roughest waves and got us to our destinations as quickly and safely as possible. The snorkelling at Chalkies was just OK as the water... More
