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!

Headed out at a nice time of the morning with Grant and Matt Sparrow, 2 guys who really made the experience worthwhile. We went past the islands and provided info on as much of our surroundings as possible, a chance to go snorkeling and a trip to Whitehaven Beach with lunch provided, which was definitely a highlight.

Despite the cold weather and rain, we had a blast! The waves made it that much more fun - there were times we couldn't stop laughing. Our hilarious tour guide kept us entertained throughout the day, and offered a wealth of knowledge about the area. The snorkeling was decent but could have been better, we did not see much fish......

Even it was cold and windy it was a great experience. A fun and wet ride to the reef. Snorkling was OK not much fish and no colorful corals, after 10 Minutes we returned to the boat. Food at whitehaven beach was excellent and enough.

The day starts with a quick ride out to one of the outer reefs of The Whitsundays where we got to snorkel around. The reef wasn't the best but we did see a few fish. Then you head to a beach for a cold buffet lunch which consisted of various Salads and cold meats. It's then an hours trip back... More

Awesome Day ! The skipper did everything he can to make it count. This guy is amazing. Always positive, taking care of everything and everyone.

One reason I chose this boat instead of others was due to the small amount of people on it. However there were some tradeoffs by doing that. First, the woman who picked us up was on time and very friendly. Braeden who was basically our guide was great. He was lively, funny and added a lot of enthusiasm to the... More

We had a great trip to Whitehaven with BigFury and our tour guide Brandon. We were first not sure whether this trip would also be suitable for our children (8 and 11 years) but they loved it most! The day started relaxed at 10.30am and the first stop at Whitehaven around lunchtime. After a first swim we had a very... More
