The crew made the trip so much fun. We were well looked after, entertained and fed. The island we went to was perfect for relaxing or being active. a great day out. Book from home to avoid missing out.

First of all, I had a great day with great people in a beautiful location. Pickup was prompt from my hotel, as was dropoff. Breakfast was great - fruit, pastries, scones and champagne. Perfect way to start the day. The crew were all really friendly, and had the passangers singing along in route, on the island and on the way... More

They also try to remember everyone's names. Lots of activities on the island to keep you busy - snorkelling with lots of pretty fish, fish feeding, fishing, kayaking,... More

The crew were locals, who were so entertaining. They played the guitars and serenaded us on the way to and from the island. Not a commercial boat, a beautiful schooner, with the sails up. The island was peaceful with snorkelling and feeding fish available. After lunch we went out fishing in their modest tin boat and had a great time... More

I went on the Schooner Whales Tale and had a fantastic day in fact this was my 2nd trip on this schooner previously 4 years ago. The cost of the full day trip includes food and drink. All the drink you want especially if you like a drink or two or more. From the time you board to the time... More

Went on this trip with a friend, overall had an amazing day. Some of the reviews I read are spot on, plenty of drinks flowing which I loved but only a couple were really drinking, most people were focussed on snorkelling and sunshine. But that could vary day to day. Also group was quite large which was unexpected, its marketed... More

Great for all the family. Staff great, food and drinks all included ALL DAY. Coral and fish viewing a little disappointing after you have experienced the G.B.REEF. GREAT VALUE
