We have done a Whitehaven Tour with other companies before but GSL have by far been the most engaging, friendly & accommodating boat crew! Which makes a huge difference when we have our young family with us (7 month old baby & 2 year old toddler). Also helps that the boat is pram friendly! Joel specifically was fantastic! Helped save me from a wild lizard (I’m dramatic but also terrified of all things in the wild) Will 100% recommend you guys to family & friends and we will always travel GSL!

Really enjoyed the trip. Its not exactly a cruise as the boat runs at top speed to get to Whitehaven beach, but then it needs to for the trip to be done in a day. The helicopter flight is only short, but pretty spectacular

Had a great time, but keep in mind that if you choose to snorkel and do the helicopter, you’ll get almost no time to relax/hike on the beach.

Really fun crew, supplied good food. All around just a spectacular time.

Great activity we were very well looked after and catered for.
