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!

Being a little restricted for time, our group of four booked on Big Fury one hour before departure. Although we considered other Whitehaven Beach options, we all agree that this was a fantastic way to see the sights. We bounced across a choppy Whitsunday Passage, taking in some scenic views. Backpackers, families and couples of all ages enjoyed fresh and... More

Jumped on board the complimentary mini bus yesterday and headed to Abel Point to meet the crew of Big Fury.. During checkin was introduced to Grant who mentioned he was previously a doctor and given i suffered with type 1 diabetes this gave me some piece of mind straight away. The day went well with a fast trip to Whitehaven... More

We considered doing a sailing trip to Whitehaven beach, but were happy we chose the Big Fury tour. We enjoyed the excitement of the fast boat and the one hour ride to our snorkel spot (would've been much longer sailing). I was spoiled with snorkeling in Cairns but still enjoyed this snorkeling experience. Then we headed to Whitehaven beach which... More

I have just got back from an amazing day. The whole thing was well organised and Grant walked the fine line between funny and professional brilliantly. He kept us laughing all day but the safety tour he gave would have put most airlines to shame. Whitehaven was amazing and beautiful and lunch was fresh and plentiful. The snorkelling was totally...

Couldn't fault these guys from start to end. The crew made the day so much fun and made sure nobody wanted for anything. Being the fastest boat around meant there was more time for Whitehaven beach and snorkelling. The food for lunch was far better than you could have expected for a boat trip and plenty of it. Safety procedures... More

Great day out on the water, stopped off for a snorkle amungst some pristine coral before heading to white haven beach for a picnic lunch with the lace goanna's. Excellent day out, crew were entertaining and very knowledgeable of the local area. Worth every cent.

This tour was just awesome!! Staff extreme friendly, the boat is fast and it makes a lot of fun riding through the islands :) Security and safety instructions on high level and the snorkeling is more than secure. They look for a sunny spot with good visibility and you can go on your own while the tour guide is there... More

Went on a trip with the BIg Fury company today of the Whitsundays Islands from Airlie Beach. It was excellent, great value for money, great hosts, especially Grant, a real character, and really good food, which was homemade and served by Grant on Whitehaven beach. The journey to the beach is quick, you have ample time for a swim before... More
