"What an amazing action packed three days boozing and cruising through the Whitsunday islands! The staff were great, the food was great, the lols were great!"

"11/10 would recommend. We got mashed on the Atlantic Clipper (and I'm just talking about the amazing potato.. thanks Frodo). The crew are awesome at getting everyone hyped with party games and fancy dress costumes on the last night. But don't worry about the goon hangovers, they're soon cured after a dip in beautiful Whitehaven beach and snorkling with fish- just watch out for the sting-rays and yellow sharks. The last morning was super chill with paddle boarding, banana boats and jet skiing. Thanks so much to the awesome crew.. hey DJ spin that sh*t!!!!"

"'Which boat are you doing for whitsundays?' Most common conversation between east coast back packers... make sure your answer is the CLIPPER every single time... Combine the best scenery of whitsundays, with activities such as snorkeling, view points, water slides, paddle boarding, jet boat/banana boat, and after the days done get your bag of goon and get in the hot tub, dance on the deck or flake out on the bean bags. It's the perfect mix of party and scenery, good sound system on the deck to play your own music and plenty of laughs with drink fueled games on the night. What happens when you mix a giant bag of miniskirts and crop tops with a fridge full of booze and loads of back packers wanting a good time...? The best cross dressing party you'll ever go to! The chef is an absolute legend, his bright white smile is as impressive as his fish, and he feeds you loads. Whitsundays boat trip? Completed it mate. Choose wisely, vote CLIPPER!"

"Had an amazing trip on the clipper with 3 other friends. We went on this boat fully aware of what this particular one is all about... and that is to have as much fun as possible while exploring the beautiful area. Its known as a party boat so anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful, relaxing trip should go on one of the many other available trips.This really is a fun, entertaining and fantastic boat where the crew go out their way to make it as memorable as they possibly can. Just remember to respect the area of sea and islands youre visiting while getting to party at sun down makes the experience of the Clipper worth it (and remember to take plenty of goon)."

"I went on the Atlantic Clipper a couple of weeks ago and totally loved it!The crew was really fun and every night we played drinking games at the top of the boat. We started with just the 4 of us but after a few minutes and laughs, more and more people joined us. Eventually it was half of the boat that joined us and it was amazing! The crew is really fun as well, they are really making the most of the nights with crazy games! Would definitely recommend the Clipper!"
