Loved every minute of our two day boat trip in the Whitsundays. The waters are amazingly clear and the coral and fish life abundant.

We went on a 2 day 2 night tour in the hammer. It had a special promotion for 299 AUD. The place is unbelievable! Is a must do for everyone. The crew was amazing, and so was the food. The places we visited were beautiful, and certainly worth your money. Don't expect though a party environment, our group seemed more... More

Went out with friends on a 22 ft boat for a spot of fishing and cruising around Hook and Hayman Island. Hooked up Coral Trout, Nanagi, sweetlip and other fish. Great bbq that night. The water was beautiful, Deep blue and flat as glass. A lovely breeze blowing. Cruising through the water, absdolutely stunning views.

Although July is kind of winter in Australia, it is one if the vest seasons to visit the Whitsundays! You will avoid the crowds of summer and a milder temperature and less windy and no risk of cyclones! We had a terrific time there on a 4 day 3 night cruise!

We all disliked Whitehaven Beach (north end). Too many planes, helicopters, boats and even drones. Daytrippers all over the place. Why go on a 3 night boat trip on one of the better boats, only to go where all the daytrippers go? It was 2 hours of boredom in the hot sun, with mosquitos. Even the swimming was bad –... More

Going by boat through these magical islands with hilltops and stunning vistas is a gift to give yourself. The clear blue green water and blue sky above cannot be appreciated by a mere picture. The islands have beautiful sand, colorful flowers, beautiful birds and abundance of tropical trees. This area beats Fiji so don't miss it if coming to Australia.

AMAZING ISLANDS!!! We travel during 3 days around the islands of Whitsundays, epic scenarios. The tours are a pic expensive but totally worth it. It feels like you in a foreigner country like Fiji or something. It's a must do in Australia.
