What people are saying about Whitsunday Islands

The skipper Alex and his crew looked after us very well during the two-day sailing trip around the Whitsunday Islands. It was fun, entertaining and we learned some interesting information about the Whitsunday Islands. We particularly liked the last evening with the campfire and camping, snorkeling on the coral reef and "George" the big fish! Everything was very well organized and the food was good, Johanna took great care of us. I would definitely recommend the tour. Value for money is very good here considering the two nights accommodation, the meals and the chance to have a good time with other people.

It was a mega trip with Captain Alex and his crew and the other participants, I had a very good time and would love to go back on board. Thank you so much and I couldn't have asked for anything better for my birthday

This was great for our young kids (3 and 1) we saw fish and a glimpse of 2 turtles it was great and kid friendly
