The locations were beautiful despite the recent cyclone damage but what was disappointing was that in both locations (Chalkies and Whitehaven) the boat/tour operators would say we were going to leave at a certain time and then try to leave early. This may sound trivial...More

We took the tour from Hamilton Island harbor to Whitehaven Beach. In about 30 minutes, the speed boat takes you to one of the most fantastic beaches in the Pacific. The sand is like powder sugar and crispy white, the water clear and blue, turtles...More

Full day trip was good because of tides and weather we were able to go to various reefs and locations. Weather and sea conditions play a big part in the extent of activities but our day was excellent.

Should have read the negative reviews prior to paying for this as there seems to be a common theme about the complaints. I wouldn't say the staff were rude per se, but clearly uninterested and impatient. Polar opposite to the staff of the reef tour...More

We did the full day trip and was so happy we chose to as time flies when you're having fun. Lots of snorkeling (if it isn't your thing, grap a noodle provided and just go for a dip), Whitehaven Beach was just breath-taking. Hill Inlet...More
