54321 Highly recommend Staff on the Cruise Whitsundays where friendly, informative and approachable. They provide tea coffee and afternoon snacks and bring along drinks, sunscreen and buckets and spades for Whitehaven beach.

54321 It was a fantastic day and everything was perfect

54321 It was a great day. All the staff that work for Cruise Whitsundays were friendly and approachable. They also kept us informed of what was going on. The trip allowed lots of time to look around at our leisure. They were well equipped at Whitehaven beach, providing water and sunscreen to those who needed it. Was a very enjoyable day. Thanks to all concerned.

43211 It was a great trip for me and my family. The crew were very helpful and friendly – one of them even helped us to spot whales on our return journey. The only “off” thing was our booking – we requested to go Whitehaven in the morning & Hamilton in the afternoon when we did the booking via phone call, but when we arrived the tickets were the other way around. It was still fun but we would have enjoyed the beach more in the morning

54321 Had a great day, and when we missed the cruise liner to Whitehaven Beach (our fault) the staff were very helpful putting us on later. Hamilton Island very relaxing and staff very obliging. Loved One Tree Hill and getting around in the buggies.
Narelle — 17 May, 2017

54321 We didn’t have much time in the area to see everything so we’re glad we chose this tour as we got to see both Whitehaven and Hamilton Island which we definitely didn’t want to miss out on. The day was great, and staff attentive.
