43211 Booked this trip following research due to my wife having had reduced mobility due to a knee replacement operation. Pick up from hotel was punctual. All stuff were friendly and aware of people, there needs and had safety as a prime objective. James was an amusing young man, full of fun. Whitehaven and BBQ was great, snorkeling was good, weather cannot be controlled, the Hill Inlet walk and view was amazing. Staff were so patient when boarding the small dingy. Snacks on board were good. We all had a get day

54321 The tour was brilliant! All the staff were super friendly and helpful 🙂 the bush walk led to the most wonderful view, then Whitehaven beach was so lovely with a proper bbq and loads of time to chill out and swim around. Snorkelling was good, saw lots of different fish, and even a turtle!! A few family’s had young children with them and the staff made sure that they could take part as much as possible too. Great trip, would certainly go again 🙂

54321 I highly recommend this tour! For me it was a unique expierience to see “the tongue” of Whitehaven Beach and the snorkelling was nice. We spotted a few dolphins on our way as well as some turtles. The crew was very friendly and helpful and the driver who picked us up was just great! Christina

43211 It was an enjoyable day. Staff were very friendly and the BBQ was excellent. We did expect a bit more time cruising the GBR rather than speeding from one destination to another and the ‘glass bottom boat’ was a bit disappointing. Maybe it was the lousy weather or where we were sitting, but we could not see much. Still, we would go back again (on a sunny day!)
