It was one of the best days of my life! Happy family memories made, amd we will still be thinking of this tour when we return to the UK. We have an autistic teenager who was very nervous about the boat and activities. The team, Maz and Benny, couldn't have been more accommodating, yet discreet, in their care. My son took part in everything and his smile on the boat as we sailed home will stay with me forever. Cannot recommend this company and their trip more highly.

It was such an amazing experience! Maddie and James made it such a wonderful trip. The rafting itself, snorkling, Whitehaven, the walk; everything was lovely! And as a bonus: we did some whale Watching as well. Great experience and would highly recommend it!

Amazing experience, you get to swim and snorkel on the great barrier reef, see huge fish and turtles. Very competent and fun team organizing the tour. Amazing views of the Whitehaven Beach. 10/10 recommend

Best experience ever! FRIGGIN AMAZING!! Very professional, but also alot of fun. Great tunes, awesome guide. Definitely doing it again, and again, and probably again

For a great half day trip, snorkeling, and stopping at Whitehaven beach and lookout, this is the trip for you!
