After the tropical cyclone had passed we boarded the Derwent wondering what we would see. Despite the recent heavy rain the cruise was excellent! The crew were very knowledgable and friendly. The food served was also very good with plenty to go around. The visibility was poor in the water after the intense rains. However we still had a good time. We bought our discounted tickets at destination Airlie opposite Magnums Hotel in Airlie Beach.

The whole experience was excellent. The crew were very friendly, the food and drink was excellent and the sailing ship was the real thing !! Our trip around the whitsundays was unforgettable, very much like the Caribbean but the coral was even better !! Loads of turtles and fish.
The only thing we didn't like was wearing the stinger suits but better safe than sorry ?
Would definitely do the trip again.

If you do nothing else whilst you are at Airlie Beach, do this day trip. Read the above, why wouldn`t you go on the Derwent Hunter?
The crew really do their utmost to ensure that you have a good time.the snorkelling is on some very beautiful parts of the Reef and is unhurried. Dave, the Captain even did the washing up after the beautiful lunch, and Jess,one of the deckhands has a great sense of humour.
You would be hard put to improve on this experience!

My family and I had a great day out with the Derwent Hunter crew. Unfortunately there was not much wind on the day we went but this did not ruin what was a really enjoyable day. The snorkelling and food were great and crew were great fun. It really was a top day for all the family.
