This particular trip was recommended to me by a travel agent in Townsville, and I'm glad that I took her advice! The staff were so warm and friendly, and it was great to be able to take in some of Whitehaven Beach and the sights, before taking part in my first ever dive! I was unlucky with the weather; it...

I start by putting it simply! I've been out diving with Mantaray 6 times in 5 weeks! I am a repeat customer for a good reason! Some of the reviews on here are from people who clearly have a very miss represented perception of reality! Do your self a favour and filter through the rubbish. Mantaray cannot not control the...

Actually...I was expecting a lot more. First of all...the leaflet offer digital camera rental. I didn't rent it from a other company because of this, they just sell a cheap toy underwater camera for $25. Secondly, I asked the lady as soon as I jumped on the boat, how long the scuba diving will be...she told me 45 min and... More

Wonderful day out. The crew were very friendly and comical and took great care of us all, with our safety and wellbeing a priority. The other passengers were from various parts of the world but we all enjoyed each others company. We had to wear wet suits because of the stingers but had a swim on the famous Whitehaven Beach...

I felt compelled to write this review after reading 'Aussie_Travel_Writer's' review. I must say i was quite worried about going on this trip after reading this review. However, i needn't have worried as this the trip turned out to be absolutely fantastic. Whitehaven beach is incredible, words cant describe how mind blowing the Whitsundays are. It looks exactly like the... More

I did the Mantaray Charters tour together with my boyfriend on Valentines day and it was the best Valentine's day we've ever had! The crew was very friendly and funny and looked after everybody and everything. We had a lot of different interest groups on board like families, couples, friends etc. And everybody seemed to be happy with the service!... More

We all had a great day out on the seaworthy charter boat 'Mantaray' in paradise amongst the Whitsunday Islands. Once we were greeted by our crew and given an entertaining safety brief and famil of the boat from our friendly skipper, we headed out into the Whitsunday Passage. A visit to the famous Whitehaven Beach is a must-do when getting... More

I always write honest, unbiased reviews with all the good, the bad and the ugly and I always trust Tripadvisor reviews to do the same when I plan a holiday. We visited the Whitsundays (Airlie Beach) a few weeks ago and I booked two trips online before the time, still deciding on the third one - although I already had... More

This is a great trip to Whitehaven Beach and to do some snorkelling for those on a budget. We booked the trip blind through our accommodation and on arrival, having walked past some stunning boats we were a little disappointed at our transport. However the trip itself was great with the skipper of the boat having a great sense of... More
