“Great Day In The Sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

My friends and I chose to do the full day cruise with this catamaran which stopped at Whitehaven Beach and then Chalkies for a snorkel. There were about 20 people on the boat so it was a good sized group. Staff were really friendly and explained everything, happy to do so. Whitehaven is a MUST in Hamilton Island and snorkeling was really fun. Stinger suits and all the snorkel gear is included and so was lunch, morning and afternoon tea... The prawns are worth it! Afternoon cocktails were delicious and a decent price. Overall a really good experience!!

“Must do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The cruise was lovely, the staff were friendly, and we saw the most gorgeous sights and sunset. The food was plentiful. Relaxing. During dinner, go out back and see the fish in the water. Don't forget your camera.

“Chalkies and Whitehaven full day cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We were blessed with the most perfect weather on the day of the cruise which was so fortunate. Our group of 11 people ranging in ages from 7 to 50, all had a ball. Enjoyed the snorkelling at Chalkies (stinger suits, goggles, snorkel and instruction all provided), the delicious lunch (of cold meats, salads, prawns, wraps or bread rolls), and the afternoon at Whitehaven Beach. The beach toys (freezbies, balls etc) provided, ensured the afternoon fun continued. The staff were friendly, helpful and genuinely seemed to enjoy playing hosts on the boat and the beach. We loved partaking in cocktails on the way home. Such value for money. We would recommend this tour to anyone. The only downside to a perfect day, was we had no wind to sail. Thanks Skipper Josh and your wonderful team.

“Awesome Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Hubby and I stayed on HI to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and chose this activity to do on the date of the anniversary. We had an absolutely awesome day. The trip out to the snorkelling was a lot of fun for those on the net as we beat into the waves. Everyone got really wet! Whilst the coral isn't fantastic there were a lot of fish around to see. Stinger suits are provided as is all your snorkelling gear. Apparently people have been stung recently so a good idea to wear them! Lunch was fresh; make your own wraps, and prawns. Plenty of food with many going back for seconds. We spent about an hour and a half on the beach where you could buy cold drinks, go for a walk to the lookout, swim or play games. Many joined in a game of beach cricket which kept the kids amused all afternoon. Was lovely to see the crew get involved too. In fact the crew were just all round awesome; knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, caring, talkative and they make a terrific cocktail to boot. We made it back just in time before the rain hit. Thanks Josh, Sam, Seton and Eve for a totally awesome day. Would love to go again one day.
