My partner and I hopped off the outer Great Barrier Reef cruise at Hamilton Island and went to the shop only to come back and our ferry to Long Island had left. The lovely staff of Cruise Whitsunday's asked an Airlie Beach bound ferry to detour to Long Island and they did without complaint. Thank you so much for going out of your way.
Also the tours we went on - Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven were wonderful.

We had an awesome day on our cruise thanks to the staff and the experience. A 2 hour trip out to the pontoon was passed easily thanks to the easy charm of the staff and lots of tea! The weather out on the reef was beautiful and i snorkelled for the first time in my life! The fish, the Coral and the semi sub brought out the child in me! Lunch was lovely nice and light meats with salads and rolls and before we knew it our time was up and we headed back inland, we had a beautiful sunset to watch on the way back in and we took some amazing pictures.

“Whitsunday cruising at its best”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We had a day cruise on the "Camira".
We opted for the sailing experience as we thought the atmosphere would be better and were very glad of our decision. Better to be out in the fresh air than a/c cabin.
As for the crew, well they made the day a fantastic experience. Not just because they entertained out kids and kept them occupied. The crews happy demeanour set the tone of the day.
Snorkelling was great and we found the coral more colourful than further up north.
Our time on Whitehaven beach was amazing. Then back to the "Camira" for a BBQ and sail home.

The best diving experience I've ever had, such wonderful sights to see and having turtles and wonderful coloured fish swimming alongside you is awesome.

“Twin Island Escape with Breakfast”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Picked up at 6.20am and depart from Marina at 7.00am. 30 minutes to Daydream Island. Hot & Cold Buffet breakfast by the waterfalls in the adults only room. Look around the island including the 30 minute rainforest walk before a fish feeding show at 10.00am. Further looking around island including Lovers Beach before beer by the pool then transfer to Hamilton Island at 12.25pm.

30 minutes to Hamilton Island and headed straight to Marina Tavern for free lunch and beer. Caught the Orange shuttle bus outside tavern at 2.07pm and did a complete circuit of the Island before alighting at the Ice Cream shop. After an ice cream caught the Green shuttle bus at the Ice Cream shop and alighted at the Resort. Looked around the resort, had a game of table tennis, beer by the beach and pool with entertainment before catching Green shuttle bus back to Marina.

Quick look around the shops before catching the 5.10pm direct 50 minute transfer to Abel Point then finally dropped off at 6.20pm.

All in all a great 12 hours and highly recommended.
