We took the half day trip to Chalkies and Whitehaven on the Reef Ryder and even though the weather was pretty average (very windy and high seas) our captain was very competent in his boat handling trying to avoid the roughest sections and getting us to our destinations as quickly and safely as possible. The snorkelling at chalkies was a great intro for the kids as our youngest hadn't done this before and swimming off the beach made it feel a lot safer for her and there was plenty of fish among even the little sections of coral. From there we headed across to Whitehaven and played a few ball games on the beach as well as having a swim. I had been to Whitehaven a few times and it never disappoints but for the rest of the family their first trip was all and more of what I had described and we all loved it.
