WHAT OUR TRAVELLERS ARE SAYING
The boat was perfect for the 6 of us and gave us the flexibility to go to some secluded spots and spend the time we wanted. Would highly recommend -... read more the skipper and snorkel instructor were both excellent!

What an amazing day, Matt and Tom were excellent guides, very knowledgeable and great guys. The seas were a little angry but Matt not only made the ride comfortable but... read more also a lot of fun. Tom’s guidance in the water was fantastic, he pointed out some incredible features that you might otherwise miss. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend.
We went for a 7 hour premium charter last week around Hamilton Island.
- Our boat skipper was lovely and so was his deck hand. Both were very courteous... read more and lovely people
- the tour itself was also good
-We were made to pay an extra $300 for a "tour guide". It turns out the "tour guide" was actually the deck hand who was sent on hikes with us (he was a nice guy) but he knew NOTHING about the area at all. He did not give us any information about the area and did not know anything. We had to eavesdrop on other tour guides from other groups to get some information about the area. The second person is meant to be on the boat anyway to guide the skipper, etc. So why charge us $300 for a person who is already going to be on the boat. When we went snorkelling he gave us 20 min in the water and rushed us to get out of it (when we were enjoying) telling us that time was up. When in fact we still had 45 min left for snorkelling time. Once we were out we asked the skipper and he agreed to let us snorkel at another destination on the way back but that spot was not great.
- After paying for a premium serivce there are no food or drinks included - no problem as they told us at the begining. We ordered a "charcuterie board" which was meant to be our lunch. That was a joke! We paid $110 and it was barely enough for 4 people as a morning tea - let alone a meal to last us the whole day. We got 4-5 crackers each and 2 small pieces of carrots, capsicums, some cheese and a couple of cherry tomatoes and 1 spoon of olives. That was definitely not lunch for 4 people by any means. It was very disappointing and we were all absolutely starving at the end of it all. For the price that is charged for this tour a generous lunch should be provided anyway. And if someone has paid extra then at the least it should be enough to fill up 4 people. I saw other cruises (not private) doing generous BBQs for their guests on whitehaven island. At least have enough food for lunch esp when you are charging extra for lunch.
We were very disappointed by these things mainly. Other than that the boat was lovely.
Captain Luke navigated the rough conditions of the day with ease and made us all feel comfortable on board. Skipper Tom was very friendly and helpful. Engaged the kids... read more with feeding the fish (or more like the seagulls haha) and helped them spot a goana, which they loved! Communication when booking with the office staff was a really pleasant experience. Thanks so much for an amazing day of adventure!!

We saw a whale, mating turtles and beautiful fishes without having to get into the water. We loved that we could customise our day and what a fantastic way to see the beautiful Whitsunday islands. …

Great private sunset cruise. Enjoyable and excellent host with a nice little hamper provided. Great for small group of 5 without crowds.
The crew were very friendly and very professional. We encountered some rough waters due to wind and Luke our skipper was excellent in minimising our discomfort. Lunch was great.

My family hired a private family charter with the food package included to spread my fathers ashes into the sea. The company was so accommodating and our skipper brought... read more us to a beautiful private location near Whitehaven to hold our private family ceremony. The food provided was absolutely gorgeous and we loved the supply of beach blankets and umbrellas provided on the beach. I would 100% recommend this company. Well worth the money and service is second to none!
