Booked this daytrip through their website at short notice which was quickly confirmed. Smooth pick up in the morning (most entertaining driver ever ;D) and then we were introduced to the crew at the pier. Welcoming, knowledgeabel and extremely entertaining, they did an amazing job which was an important part of this great cruise. The boat itself does not make... More

Convenient pick up at our resort and on the water within 20 mins. Stopped at a nice secluded spot on Whitehaven beach were we had time to... More

My wife and I had a fun day on this activity to Whitsunday Island. The crew was very friendly, efficient and funny as well. The tour commentary was interesting and very humorous, and the boat was comfortable and fast. The BBQ lunch on the beach at Whitehaven was amazing, as were the stops at the hill for the fabulous view... More

They picked us up from our accommodation and dropped us home. The view from the top of the ship was amazing. Morning tea, a hot BBQ lunch and snacks were provided. There were also soft drinks, wine, beer and mixed spirits available to buy. The crew really know their stuff and are very passionate about the Whitsundays. The breeze came... More

We had a wonderful day with Whitehaven Xpress. Went on board at Airlie Beach, spent 2 hours on Whitehaven beach including a nice BBQ, then up to beautiful Hill Inlet (a must see!) and afterwards snorkeling at a really nice spot at Hook Island. Everything was perfectly organized and the crew was amazing and very helpful. Can not be better... More

The day was perfect. The staff were fantastic. Very professional and friendly. Pick up and drop off worked well. Lunch was lovely, and I was made a homemade vege burger. I was impressed that my stuff was wrapped in foil so it didn't mix with meat juices, not many people would have thought of that. Picnic site was lovely and... More

The staff were really friendly (except for the grumpy bus driver, he has a chip on his shoulder) and Cam is a funny bugger with bad dad jokes and puns a plenty!

Lachlan thank you for your lovely review. sorry the bus driver let us down this day. (most of the drivers are quite well balanced with a chip on each shoulder). I will personally have a chat to each of them, it is important and is really taken seriously. How good is it seeing a turtle up close - a rare... More
