This cruise was the highlight of our trip to daydream island. The Skippy and his crew were amazing and took care of us all day, we even helped set the Skippy up for a prank. Great snorkelling, amazing food with plenty of drinks. We were all entertained for the whole day, even managed full steam ahead with sails full of wind on the way back...tick!

Had a fantastic day sailing on the Camira. Experienced crew were very helpful and supportive when I was feeling unsure about snorkeling! Whitehaven beach is tranquil and sailing home using only wind power was topped off the experience Great food and drinks were flowing from 11am onwards. This is a must do trip when you are in the Whitsundays.

My husband and i did the Reef Sleep and Whitehaven beach and Whitehaven beach and what a awesome 3 days it was. Would thoroughly recommend this is on everyone's bucket list. We are in our 60s and 70s and it was the best trip ever. From the friendly staff to the food it was amazing. The oysters we had were the best we have ever had. Reef sleep is a full on 2 days and you have a good choice of beer and wine to suit everyones taste. Good job Whitsunday tours you have put alot of thought into giving your customers a wonderful experience no matter what age. Could not fault anything.

It doesn't get any better than this. Not only is the Reefsuite an amazing underwater experience - complete with blue lighting into the ocean so that you can watch the reef go about its business - but the staff are also ready to provide the best possible hospitality. The food is top quality, prepared by Sebastian, a French chef and no detail for our comfort was overlooked.

Brilliant day trip absolutely loved it, crew were great funny and helpful. The boat was excellent had a couple times with motors off and in full sail mode. Whitehaven beach and hill inlet were beautiful. Snorkelling was better than we expected and hubby got to see a sea turtle and reef shark (I missed out on the snorkelling because I wasn’t sure how you get back into the inflatable boat note to self ask these questions!) the inflatable has a little ladder they hang over the side. The group onboard were all fun and loving life. Only thing that would have topped it off is to make available some other alcohol choices even for purchase for those who don’t drink beer, cider or white wine. A glass of bubbles on that cruise back would have been brilliant. Thanks for a fantastic day out exploring the Whitsundays.
