We had a great trip on the Avatar! The boat itself is lovely with massive areas you can relax and sunbathe on. The sleeping conditions although a bit hot are also fine for a boat. You’re the first people at Whitehaven beach for about 4 hours as you arrive at 7am which was amazing. As we left at 10.30 tonnes of boats arrived up so being there alone was really special. Also snorkelled in some cool spots. Food was great. Not really party boat in our experience, although this suited us! Constructive feedback would be that on the first day you don’t really do much. You get on at midday and we snorkelled at one spot for about an hour, then you are just on the boat for the rest of the day. If you don’t mind chilling it’s fine however another activity on the afternoon of the first day such as a beach visit or walk would have been welcomed. Apart from that, amazing trip with lovely chilled crew! Thank you.

J'ai fait cette excurssion avec une amie et nous n'avons pas été déçues du tout! Il faut oublier son confort fortement restreint sur un bateau mais il est finalement peu important. Vous avez la chance de voir une des plus belles plage du monde (et totalement d'accord) mais aussi de nager au coeur de l'océan avec les poissons. De plus, les soirées sur le bateau sont supers sympas! Vous partagez avec les autres et assistez à un super coucher de soleil! Le personnel est top! Je recommande fortement cette excurssion.

We had a special and unique experience. Alex and the crew- Carter and Dylan were great! They cooked us delicious food, explained everything to us, took us to amazing places to snorkel and took us to the stunningly beautiful beach of whitehaven island. The sleeping conditions were challenging, but we managed and slept well and they contributed to the experience! Many thanks to Ozsail for the amazing experience. We were with 3 children (5,8,11) and they also really enjoyed it!

Unfortunately, it was not a “yacht” in the sense in which one imagines it. It was an old boat. The paint has chipped off and stuck to everyone's body. We could only sail a little bit within the 2 days, most of the time we drove with a motor boat, so to speak. Sleeping on the boat was very cramped. With so many people (27+3 crew members) it could be a bit cheaper I think.

The experience on the boat was amazing. The staff was very professional and pleasant. The food was excellent, especially with regard to evening meals. The landscapes that can be seen during these two days are magnificent. Highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to visit the Whitesundays.
