With limited time (and one party member who is prone to sea-sickness if out too long on a boat and especially a moored and bobbing boat) we chose to take this half-day trip and we all loved it - grandparents, daughter and teenage grandson. The young 'driver' was very skilled - we were most impressed by the way he handled... More

We had a great morning out the boat doing the half day fishing trip. My husband caught two 'keeper' size (40+ cm) coral trout and several throw backs. I caught a few throw backs and a coral trout that was half a cm undersized! The boys on the boat where very helpful and had a relaxed approach to the day... More

The two-in-one trip to Chalkies and Whitehaven was fantastic. We were visiting in a group for a wedding and wanted to see the islands but didn't want to invest a whole day (we didn't have bunches of time). The trip was great, just enough time at both locations to enjoy what they had to offer without feeling like we had... More

We took several of their services over our trip! We did the speed boats, all day snorkeling, wake boarding, and jet skiing. The staff was amazing! We are a family of 8, ages of children 5-15. They were patient, kind, knowledgable, and flexible! Changing locations and time lines for the best possible experience! They stopped several times so we could... More

We had a lovely morning - fun ride in the speed boat to excellent snorkelling at Chalkies Beach, then on to swim at Whitehaven. Saw three whales during the morning, beautiful fish and a goanna too!

We chose the half day Two in One -Visit Whitehaven & snorkelling off chalkies Beach on one of the Reef Ryder's. Loved the iPad to complete the liability waiver, but a little bit of fuss & bother & rushing to get everyone signed on meant 2 of our party of 4 didn't pay. Of course this was picked up later...

We did the day tour going to Whitehaven beach and snorkelling at 3different locations and a walk to the lookout at Hills Inlet. We found the staff helpful but not intrusive. Our itinerary had been carefully worked out by the staff to account for the large tidal fall so that we were able to get to Hills inlet as well... More

We did the Whitehaven beach dash, the staff at the checkin were friendly enough but not very informative. Once we made our way down to the boat our 'deckhand' was very short and unresponsive to everyone on the tour, our driver just seemed bored with the whole thing. The beach was amazing and we got to spend a good amount... More
