We booked a 2 days 2 nights "Pride of Airlie" tour carried out by koala adventures on South Molle Island. It definitely was the WORST TRIP OF MY LIFE! About the vessel: it's really a BAD JOKE and very DIRTY catamaran. The cabin was way too small and smelled like toilet. Also you couldn't lock the toilet. About the resort:... More

Not enough food for all and only cheep food like noodles and rice. In fact only two days and two nights because of the late beginning and early ending of the tour. Like a typical tourist resort with horrible animation e.g. limbo. No time for exploring the island. No BYO but bar closes at 10 pm. You feel like they... More

The food was pretty terrible throughout the trip and the buildings on the island itself are falling apart. However, the staff is very friendly and helpful. A highlight of the trip was learning to husk a coconut. The facilities are below average as our toilet stopped working and the island lost water for part of the stay. Overall, it's not... More

There were so many boats to choose from we didn't know what to do so we booked with a Travel Agent who recommended the Pride of Airlie to us. The Whitsundays were absolutely amazing. The boat itself was really good as was the crew on board. The walk on the island was one of the best I have been on!... More

After being sold this trip in a travel agent in Cairns my friends and I were very excited to be heading to the Whitsundays and actually staying on an island. I was very apprehensive given the price ($499 each!) as I had previously been told by a friend that I should just do a day trip to the Whitsundays as... More

The resort you stay on is very old, the toilet did not work, the pool was not clean, the food was bad, the drinks was expensive. We did not sail because it was to many people on the boat so it was not safe tor sail, so we went by motor the entire trip. Take any other company if you... More

Booked this trip as part of a package with Wicked Travel down in Sydney a month ago's. 3 of us went over to Southmole island on the Pride of Airlie last week and had a brilliant time! The island itself is amazing and everything you would expect from a tropical island in the Whitsundays. The first day we got there,... More

Got told that staying on the island was the "better" and more popular way of experiencing the whitsundays. They couldn't have been more wrong. The accommodation wasn't far from a abandoned old, smelly hotel; the fact they call it a resort is a straight up lie. The accommodation is filthy as you can see from the picture, my friend had...

This was my second time on south molle, last time was in 2013... And it's still amazing. Everyone has their own opinions about this place, which is fine but to me this place is so welcoming. All the staff are so nice, like a small little family. We went there on our own boat again, we knew it was a... More
