54321 Absolutely amazing! If there was a single thing I had to change it would be nothing! The flight was excellent and the views amazing! On the rafting trip, Josh and Shanna (the captain and the guide) were awesome! Fun and knowledgeable and very personable…they were quick to anticipate all our needs. Compliments to the chef too! Lunch was outstanding! We were lucky to have picked this tour, we didn’t realize they had unrestricted access to areas no other tours could go. There was no one else around for the beach trip and we had the snorkeling spot to ourselves too. Thank you THANK YOU! You gave us an experience we’ll never forget!

54321 We took this package in November, and it was an amazing experience. It was Jenny’s birthday and she thought that this was the best birthday present ever!! The scenic flight was awesome and we got to see a lot, including Heart reef. The Ocean Rafting trip to Whitsuday island which covered snorkling, Hill Inlett and Whitehaven beach was the highlight for me. Some of the most spectacular views and beaches ever. Don’t take my work for it, and see bellow the video we put together from this trip. So see for yourself what a great experience this was. My only comlplaint is that I would have liked to spend a lot longer on Whitehaven beach. It felt like we had only about 45 minites there which is not enough to enjoy the beauty there. Would have loved to have stayed there for at least 2 more hours!! So my suggestion is for this experience to start 1 hour eaelier, and then finish 1 hour later. And use these 2 extra hours as ‘free time’ at Whitsunday Island. ps. And not a bad value either. Can’t wait to come back!!
