MY BOYS & I LOVED IT!!!..... An authentic trip..... instead of some random ‘supercat’ full of people, or a high speed blow-up boat that is moving so fast the only thing you can do is ‘hold-on’ ....... even though the ‘chop’ & sea spray was a bit ordinary at times, that’s part of the ‘experience’ isn’t it???...... unless your to ‘precious’ for a “REAL” experience, this HAS TO BE, the way to see the Whitsundays..... couldn’t fault the staff..... the ‘right’ combination between courteous/Aussie/Fun/Professional..... amazing
Really enjoyed being on a sailing boat for the first time, even got to pull some sails, felt like an explorer! Great snorkeling spot with lovely fish and nice coral and the cherry on top, 3rd time lucky visit to Whitsunday Island (after the first times being rainy and chocolate milk colour) I finally got to see the clear blue water, the long-promised turquoise waters, swirling sands and heavenly white beach. Totally worth it! The crew was nice, friendly and funny.
Loved the boat, the water was a bit rough so the raincoats come in handy. The guys running the boat were very nice and the bar on the way home was a nice addition. We did get scammed/pressured into hiring wetsuits from a lady that associates with the boat. So be mindful of her. My wetsuit didn't fit me and we didn't wear them in the water anyway so a waste of $20.
Great day. No wind so no sailing which you can't control the weather. Wear shoes in summer up to the lookout as feet get really hot. Don't spend too long at the lookout so you can have a little swim in the beautiful waters. Captain was really awesome and gave off a relaxed vibe. Was great with the younger kids too. Absolutely recommend. Value and price matched.
The trip over was rough but great fun. The only thing to remember is that although t website says there are stinger suits available- they are not! You will be asked to pay $10 to hire a wetsuit if you want.
