“Would not do this twice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

We did a day trip to the platform off of the cruise ship we were on. I am an experienced diver and spend a lot of time on small boats. The trip was advertized as a 1-1/2 hour boat ride and 3 hours on the platform. The boat ride was more like 2-1/2 hours each way and total time on the platform was around 1-1/2 hours. The visibility was no more than 25ft. and rather than spending more money for Scuba I jumped in with mask and snorkel and saw all I needed in 10 minutes. 50% of the folks got sick on the way out and the way back and I could not imagine that I would ever do this again.

“Reefsleep”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Had an awesome time during my reefsleep. Went by myself and the cruise and crew were just amazing! The swags were comfortable to sleep in and the crew went over and beyond to make sure we had a good time. The food was good. Richard was the best, he told us so much about the Southern Hemisphere stars. Very impressed. Martin (contact me :) ) always made sure I had a great trip and I wasn't too nervous for my scuba dive. Highly recommend the reef sleep.

“Amazing journey great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

My partner Jemma and I went on the whitehaven beach cruise to hill inlet and had an amazing experience. The trip was unforgetable with friendly staff like Craig, the charismatic tour guide, who involved everyone in the group making special moments even more memorable and Jason the Captain who was always helpful, welcoming and witty. Thanks to all the staff of Cruise Whitsundays for such a sensational trip. Justin and Jemma.

“good fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

friends and I did a snorkelling trip and I cant say enough about the staff and boat. I was a bit disappointed with the huge amounts of people but the beauty of the great barrier reef made up for it
