Fun, fast cruise around the Whitsunday Islands. All in one day visit world famous Whithaven Beach, then it's off to a pristine snorkelling reef off of another island, a delicious picnic lunch served right on the beach, afternoon snacks, entertaining and educational crew commentary throughout the day. Fun from start to finish!

Thank you for sharing your feedback and we are very sorry for the manner in which one of crew reacted to you bringing a banana on the boat. Some crew are very superstitious but this by no means excuses his behaviour on your trip. This...More

This was a very bumpy but very enjoyable boat trip. The tour guide made it a fun day. We stopped off at Whitehaven beach, done snorkelling and also went to the look out at the swirling sands. Really enjoyed it
