What people are saying about Whitsunday Islands

We were very unlucky with the weather for this trip- high winds, rain and big swells- however the staff were all amazing trying to ensure we had the best possible experience given the weather. We tried the introduction dive and Daisy literally held our hand through out! It was so worth while as no matter how wild the weather was above the water, underwater was a true paradise and an experience I will never forget.

The experiences on offer were excellent. The safety and other instructions were easy to follow and remember. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was great and of course the reef itself was fantastic. I would definitely return one day. Thanks to all and a special thanks to the little Asian girl who put up with me for my first snorkelling experience, and dragged me along the reef.

It was a beautiful day with blue sky and sunshine.The reef was beautiful serene and underwater vision on the glass bottom boat was excellent.I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to know more about our wonderful Barrier Reef.

Fantastic day. All the staff were fabulous. My children loved it. Big call out for the buddy who helped my son through his fear of being in the deep water.

this was an amazing experience. the staff were amazing from beginning to end. I loved it so much I am doing it again in a couple of months.
