We chartered Aliara for 8 nights in August 2013 with some of our family from NZ (we are based in Central Queensland).
We had a superb holiday and would definitely recommend Whitsunday Escape to anyone considering a Whitsunday holiday.
The team was extremely helpful right from the planning stage. We booked the holiday whilst in NZ and we really appreciated Jess & Tegan contacting us in NZ to answer any questions we had. The communication (mostly via email as this was most convenient for us) was extremely informative yet easy to follow and most of all very helpful. It made the planning and lead up to our holiday very easy and took the stress out of the planning.
We highly recommend the night aboard at the Marina beforehand as it is a great chance to familiarise ourselves with the yacht and most of all it allowed the children to familiarise too.
The orientation was fantastic and we feel it covered all the necessary topics, we personally felt there was nothing we would change about this given the choice. Ben was very easy to get along with, his experience was obvious but he had a wonderful ability to explain things to our less experienced sailors. Thank you very much Ben.
Our actual holiday was marvellous and something we would like to do again when the kids are older. We thoroughly enjoyed the catamaran but next time we would probably opt for a monohull having already experienced the Whitsundays in a cat.
Having sailing tourism experience in the Bay of Islands in NZ we weren’t sure what to expect of the Whitsundays but we had a wonderful time and were very lucky to have beautiful weather and see whales, turtles and beautiful coral & tropical fish.
We would like to personally thank those we met: Wes, Ben, Alita, Jess, Rose and also thank those who assisted us with our behind the scenes holiday planning. The Whitsunday Escape Team are highly professional, extremely knowledgeable and very friendly, thanks guys!
