James Pennington, 08 Jul 24
Excellent Luke and Dane were very good making the day very safe and enjoyable.
India Rose Long, 03 Jun 24
THIS TRIP WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD! Myself and my 2 friends were lucky enough to take a trip on Big Fury the other day. We visited both sides of Whitehaven and we had 1 snorkel stop at Chalkies Beach and this was one of the most amazing snorkelling spots i have ever seen and i have seen many! The food was delicious and the crew were amazing. They were all so knowledgeable and you could just tell that they love their jobs. They were only 18 years old and were really amazing and passionate about what they do! Luke (the host) knew everything about the islands and he was so sweet and attentive. Big Fury is a family owned business and is much cheaper than some of the other trips and i feel as though you get so much for what you pay! Thank you to the amazing crew for making our time in the Whitsundays so special.
Sharon Hallay, 24 May 24
