First of all, we got picked up near our hostel. Great service and driver arrived with a smile. They bring you to the gathering point where you get the option to hire a stinger suit for 7 dollars. Do it! You will need it when swimming + everybody wears them ;-) Good info on the boat! Great entertaining guide and... More

Me and my friends booked big Fury for our last day in Airlie beach and we did not regret it. Locky and Matt are very professional and helpful, but overall just fun guys. Had a great day.

He was very energetic and full of enthusiasm from the get go. We boarded our boat and were given a great safety instructions on... More

We had a great day out with the Big Fury. Well-organized and friendly staff. Made sure our family of 5 got seats together, and when we arrived at the snorkelling reef everyone in the boat had their snorkelling gear on and were ready to go into the water. The 1-hour snorkelling was good (of course it's not the great barrier... More

Great fun, fast, wet and beautiful! Ideally I would of liked longer on the island but of corse you have to get to the islands which takes up the time, the staff were very friendly and knowledgable. If it's a cooler day wrap up as it can get chilly especially if your sitting at the back prepared to get wet... More

We got to airlie beach and booked our cruise with mangnums. Got the big fury bus at x-base, went on the boat, took some beautiful photos of many islands, saw some amazing fish and coral, then went to whitehaven beach for lunch, which was so full-filling. The rest of the time we just relaxed, and it was picture perfect. The... More

For starters, we were waiting to get on the boat for around 15-20 minutes. Next thing, the snorkeling was horrible and we were taken to a horrible spot. When myself and other passengers on board were getting ready to jump in the water, the driver of the boat, rudely came to the front and told us all to hurry out... More

Sorry to read your negative review about your recent Big Fury trip! I am quite surprised and taken a back by your comments though! You must be the first guest out of 1000's who perceived out crew as rude! Most guests say that the crew make the trip! I am not sure what led you to your opinions but if... More

My partner and I had such a blast on the Big Fury adventure! The day started out with a little rain, but as we departed it cleared up and conditions on the water were good. After a comfortable ride of approximately 1 hour, we arrived at the snorkeling spot. We were given clear instructions and enjoyed about an hour's worth... More
