Fun, fast cruise around the Whitsunday Islands. All in one day visit world famous Whithaven Beach, then it's off to a pristine snorkelling reef off of another island, a delicious picnic lunch served right on the beach, afternoon snacks, entertaining and educational crew commentary throughout the day. Fun from start to finish!

Booked previous day tour operator very helpful! Loved the day from start to finish, tour guide Locky was brilliant full of local knowledge and briefed us on conservation guidelines and safety! Excillerating boat ride to the island. Beautiful Whitehaven beach, lunch was more and better than I expected! Locky took great photos of all parties on board! Snorkelling on the... More

This would have to be one of the best 1 day trips that we have ever done! Quite simply the team could not do enough for us. We had a tight timeline to get back to the ship and they did every possible to meet this including dropping us off back to the Port of Airlie to catch the tender... More

This tour was so awesome I can't stress enough how much you need to go on it! The staff (particularly Braydon) were so knowledgable and funny! Excellent commentary and superb lunch was laid on for us all. *Do NOT expect brilliant snorkelling here during Nov-Mar* if you want to snorkel in crystal clear water, go to the outer reef from...

As others have mentioned, this is a well organised day trip. From the moment I was collected from my accommodation, a great deal of fun was experienced. With a smaller than average tour boat, there are plenty of opportunities to meet other people. The driver and host provide lots of information about the islands that are passed en route -... More

We followed the recommendation on trip advisor and were not disappointed. This is an excellent well run tour to Whitehaven beach (lunch provided and a swim) and then on to snorkelling amongst the coral... we went to Raven cove (a good hour in the water) which was beautiful. The trip is a full day in a very fast boat (raft)... More

For a 1 day trip out to the Islands this trip was very good. The Crew on-board were "safety-first" and although they were a little rough around the edges, they were genuinely funny, charismatic, and tried to appeal to every sense of humour on-board. Lunch was basic, but "hey, you get what you pay for"....even still, it was good. The... More

Cool fast boat with only a small number of guests. Tour guide was funny and took some great pics for us at Whitehaven beach. Lunch included however have to pay for drinks during the day. Snorkelling was good fun and gear was provided. Had to pay for stinger suits $7 each, bit annoying as they are practically a necessity for... More
