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

I booked this trip up in Cairns as part of a whole east coast package and did get some post booking blues as we got really anxious because of some of the reviews on Trip advisor. However I am glad we did it in the end because it seems like what most people were writing about is either sorted or... More

But we are both in our mid 20's and enjoyed every second on the pride of airlie. It really was a perfect 2days 2nights get away into a tropical paradise on the remote south molle islands.... More

The general trend of the reviews of this trip are all spot on. This trip was horrendous. When booking this trip a few weeks before in Out of Bounds, Byron Bay we were told that we couldn't miss this trip. It was sold to us as 2 nights 3 days at a beautiful scenic hotel, with amazing food, plenty of... More
