What people are saying about Whitsunday Islands

One of the best experiences ever done in the field of sea excursions! The staff is very nice and helpful, several snacks were served with many choices both in food and drinks (alcoholic and otherwise). Lunch included 3 different types of grilled meat, fresh shrimp, cold pasta, potatoes, salad, vegetables, sauces, bread. The atmosphere was pleasant and light for the entire duration of the excursion (departed 8.15, arrived 17.45). It is really worth it!

It was a fantastic day on the water! I would highly recommend! The food was really good and there was LOTS of it. The crew and everyone else on board were really friendly! I was a bit scared to go by myself but it was honestly fine if you’re willing to talk to people! It was definitely worth the money!

So professionally run. The crew were amazing, so helpful, kind snd organised. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, the meals and food were delicious,. Activities spot for on and 10 out of 10 in every way.
