If you can get over the way that Paul barks his instructions at his crew in a condescending and rude manner, the experience is fabulous. Beautiful beaches and amazing snorkelling on the most stunning reefs in the world. The check-in was efficient and the lunch was adequate. And the boat was very comfortable with a small group of adventurers. It... More

The staff at Watersports were nice, but the sign in system took too long for a family to complete and so the line was a bit large in the morning sing-in - I suggest you guys create a family sign in for all members on ONE form. Staff did not think to advise us of the low water temp and... More

Me and my son did the parrasailing and was great fun. We even got to see some whales after we finished, which the guy hung around and let us take photos 😀

Friendly staff made for a enjoyable afternoon . Speed boat out to Snorkel around a reef and time for a swim or sun and refreshments on the beach. Kids happy for the whole trip, now that is a bonus :-)

Kids did Sea Kayak adventure with Josh and it was fantastic! They also had him for other sports and he is very enthusiastic and knowlegable.

My partner and I booked a last minute trip to Hamilton island and decided to include a sunset kayak. Having never been kayaking before we were a little bit timid about the experience but our guide Josh who works out of the Dinghy hire place on hamilton island immediately made us feel at ease. He was funny and very down... More

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
