before we got on boat James briefly gave us details of places we going to visit. when we got near whitsunday Islands where the shallow water was, boat was stopped for nearly an hour for all the people on board to go for snorkeling. It was my first time so i freaked out but nicole was very friendly, helped me to snorke,it was breathtaking, Cannot express in words how wonderful the snorkeling experience gave me to look in the water, get to find different spices of fishes, amazing reef swinging, on top of all that, we get to see Sandy the Shark. It was right 10 feet under me in a small cave. never imagined i would see shark that close. From there we were taken to white heaven Island, where we had bush walk for 15 minutes, we were full on but the bush walk was too much for kids they got tired and hungry. Right after that we had some fun time at beach whilst having lunch, playing with silicon sand and diving into the crystal clear water is the most exciting thing to do. we just loved it.

It was such a beautiful end to our week! The views are worth it, hosts are fantastic! There's space at the back of you want some quiet but even surrounded by a hens and few big groups which felt like a party boat I still was able to enjoy some peace and enjoy the atmosphere and take everything in. Definitely book it was so great and just a wonderful experience!!!! 5 stars!!!!

Such a great tour! it was rainy when we went but cleared up by the time we snorkelled & it was still such a great time! 10/10 recommend this tour if you’re visiting Airlie Beach ! I swam with hundreds of fish & Maori Wrasse & Giant Travelly! it was amazing

First time ocean rafting was rough wet day. Still had a awesome day enjoyed Whitehaven beach and snorkeling. The tour guides Mandy and AJ made the experience even better I will be doing it again.

Amazing would definitely do it again definitely one of the coolest things we have ever done
