First of all the hill in let is a must on any booking you make in whitsundays. The company was nothing special at all, snack for breakfast ran out, the lunch we we're told by the skipper not to have to much (we we're starving by lunch time) so left hungry. the skipper although I assume was trying to be...

The Whitsunday Islands are one of the top attractions of Australia, and for a reason. During our daytrip with Mantaray we enjoyed picturesque views of perfectly blue sea and the idylic islands. That said, keep in mind that you spend about three quarters of the time atop a roaring diesel engine, which takes away much of the magic. It does... More

Beach was amazing! However the snorkelling spot was absolutely rubbish, we saw maybe 4 different types of fish and the coral was all dead. The lunch on the boat was also quite gross. Great staff though all friendly.

It was a gorgeous day. The beaches were superb, the water transparent, although a little chilly while snorkelling (and that's not Mantaray's fault), Glen and his crew were professional and amusing, an excellent balance between responsible and funny. The food provided was pretty decent and much better than my expectations, there was a good variety of dishes for all tastes.

Went for my first dive which was daunting enough. Thanks to Lucas and Kyun for all the help to make this first time dive as easy as possible. The introduction by Lucas was great. Once down in the water both instructors made sure myself and others were as comfortable as possible. Which in itself hard enough to trust people that... More

We booked this trip by default as all the cheaper boat tours to Whitehaven Beach were sold out. The crew were excellent especially the photographer who went out of his way to take photos of our family group of 10 and sold them to us on a disk at very reasonable prices. The seas were calm which made for a... More

Ok, so i'll start off with the good stuff. Friendly staff, clean tidy vessell, loved that we got to see Whitehaven beach and have a descent amount of time to relax and swim. Plus doing 2 dives along with that is pretty great value. Now the bad stuff. The 2 dives we did were just 2 dives at the same... More
