    "Loved our time on Blizzard and the crew, Alex and Sam were amazing. You can really tell they were enjoying their job and they did everything in their power to keep us safe, fed and entertained. We also did a lot more sailing and used a lot less motor than I was expecting."
    Alexandru
    "Went on Blizzard for a 3D/2N trip around the Whitsundays. Blizzard is a lovely yacht and has enough space for everyone on board (it is a yacht not a house). Our skipper Scottie was very knowledgeable and made the trip more personal... we stopped to view whales at every opportunity, which all the guests loved. He also took us under sail more than motor, which was great. Des was our deckie and the food was amazing! We felt constantly fed and my girlfriend was well catered for, even as a veggie; had separate meals prepared. Our crew were really good and definitely added to the great experience. Being early in the whale season we did not expect to see any. We were fortunate enough to see multiple breaches and one whale come within 50m of the boat. We snorkelled with turtles and saw some great sections of reef.. you read so many horror stories of the Great Barrier Reef so it was great to see that it is still thriving (if you are willing to not go to the tourist sites that are visited daily by hundreds of people!) The Whitsundays are truly incredible and we felt this was the best way we could have seen them. We will definitely be back and have been inspired to start sailing more! Thank you for a great time."
    James and Abby
    "Amazing trip on the sailboat Blizzard! Scotty and Mitch are just a perfect crew, we couldn't get any better. Scotty, our funny and experienced captain took us to just amazing places. We saw colourful corals, fishes and turtles. Mitch is a great cook! He always prepared delicious meals and helped with everything! Both of them had always an instructive answer for marine life and sailing. It was a beautiful sailing adventure with a very nice group. Thanks for everything!"
    Christina and Mat
    "We have booked a 2 night sailing tour on the Blizzard, a 50 ft Beneteau sailing boat, and it was a wonderful trip although the weather could have been better. Scotty, the skipper and Desiree, the assistent and cook, did a great job and knew what to do. Everything was well organized, food very nice and the boat quite clean. Scotty likes to sail really and not only use the engine and he is very experienced concerning the Whitsunday waters. Nice stops for snorkeling, clear instructions and entertaining stories made it all very enjoyable. We can really recommend this crew and company."
    Vinjardin
    "My friend and I were on board Blizzard from Friday to Sunday - honestly, one of the best experiences of our lives. The snorkelling and scenery, complemented by the monohull sailing, was just so so much more than we could have hoped for. Scotty was a phenomenal skipper with his knowledge of all things, not just the sailing. He is a huge asset to your company. As is Monique, the deckhand, who was the best tour guide we could have hoped for, looked after us, and cooked up a storm every mealtime. In all, thank you so so much for giving us an amazing time."
    John B
    "Best 2 day 2 night trip in the Whitsundays!! It's my 3rd trip out to the reefs and I will say the skipper loccy made the trip with his knowledge and enthusiasm! The food was fantastic and I thoroughly appreciated the effort the skipper went to take us to the best spots on the reefs for snorkeling!! Out of all the boats this is the one to get on !!"
    Chris J
    "Fabulous trip in great hands. Grateful to have had them take such good care of us. Thanks."
    Scot B
    "Just finished a fantastic 3 day trip on Blizzard with Scotty & Mitch. The sailing was brilliant and a lot of fun. Both Scotty & Mitch were extremely knowledgeable & informative; they added so much to the experience. The snorkelling was very enjoyable & Scotty's local knowledge certainly enhanced the trip to Whitehaven Beach. The food was also excellent, plenty of it & good quality. This is my 3rd trip to Aus & I've been on a number of trips & experiences across the country. This is by far the highlight of my previous trips combined! I'd certainly recommend Blizzard to anyone as you get the true sailing experience with an excellent crew."
    Fish
    "It was the best trip while being in Australia!"
    "Scotty was so knowledgable about all aspects of sailing and the reef and we learnt so much from him in such a short space of time. It's clear he is incredibly skilled and passionate about his job which makes the experience so positive for everyone. Luke was also an excellent deckhand - he prepared delicious meals for us and ensured we never wanted for anything. He was also so friendly and seemed very keen to learn as much as possible from Scott. Thanks very much to both members of the team - it wouldn't have been the same without either of them!"
    Jessica
    "One of the best experiences I had. The crew was extremely nice, kind and they just make you feel at home."
    Mel
    "My personal highlight from 9 months in Australia is definitely the trip we just had on Blizzard, captained by Scotty and Yas his 1st mate. Great weather helped made the whole experience really enjoyable. Scotty's knowledge and experience is second to none and Yas was always really friendly as well as a great cook. Despite cyclone Debbie wiping out the islands only 6 weeks ago, they still managed to show off the best the islands have to offer."
    Chris
    "I did a lot of research on different boats/boat companies before booking; we wanted a good value for money boat with a small number of passengers. We chose 'Blizzard' as it had excellent reviews and met our requirements. The whole trip was a once in a lifetime, amazing experience."
    Gareth
    "We just finished our tour on the Blizzard and wanted to give some immediate feedback. We had a wonderful time and cannot say enough good things about the tour. We really wanted to contact you directly though to emphasize how much we appreciated Mitch! He was unbelievable, especially given that it was his first trip on this boat. He worked extremely hard, was very social, and an all around pleasure to have as our first mate! We hope that many others have the chance to sail with him in the future! Thanks again."
    Tiff and Chris
    "We choose Blizzard because we knew is was one of newest boats sailing in the Whitsundays. We were very happy with our choice and Blizzard exceeded our expectations. The experienced crew with Ellen and John looked after us for three days and the food always seemed to be brought out whenever we were hungry and there was plenty of it. During our tour we were lucky enough to see whales, turtles even a few dolphins. We are more than happy to recommend Blizzard to anyone planing on sailing in the Whitsundays!"
    Keith
    "Our 2 day/2 night trip on Blizzard was the highlight of my holiday in Australia. Our captain was so knowledgeable about the Great Barrier Reef and took us to the best snorkelling spots. Our deckhand was so friendly and welcoming and cooked us some lovely simple food, which was just what we needed after a day snorkelling and sailing. I would recommend this trip to everyone!"
    Hannah
    "We recently sailed onboard Blizzard. Right from the start we could not have asked for better hosts or a more amazing experience! It far exceeded our expectations! Both of the crews knowledge and expertise, combined with their friendly and welcoming attitudes made everyone feel safe, and ensured that we had a fantastic time! We booked the private cabin with the ensuite which was perfect. The facilities on board (not just our room) were extremely clean and looked brand new! Our bed was really comfy and we had amazing views straight out of our cabin! All the meals we had onboard Blizzard were absolutely delicious! We were very impressed, it was so good to know that we would be getting a great feed after doing all our activities during the day! All the experiences we had during our time left us wanting more! We will definitely be coming back and telling all our friends about our amazing trip and the experiences we had - Thanks so much! Cant wait to come back again! "
    Tom
    "My friend and I booked Blizzard and we had a blast. Captain Scotty was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable and at home. Blizzard is in fantastic shape and the cabins are clean and comfortable. The boat sails beautifully, so even the most experienced sailors wont be disappointed. Book this trip - you wont be disappointed!"
    "The trips was awesome! It was THE highlight of my holiday in Australia thanks to skipper Dave and Stephanie. They are the best! Definitely recommend this to other people. Dave and Steph made the trip an awesome trip!! Very professional, experienced, clean, caring, just great!"
    Dabi - Netherlands
    "Amazing!!!! The crew were outstanding - the best couple of days I've had in Australia. Thanks so much :)"
    Roxy
    "We couldn't recommend this trip and this boat highly enough. If you are looking for a fun relaxed trip-not a party boat but a very sociable boat-that when the wind is good makes you feel like you are really sailing-stop looking for anything else-book an adventure with isail-and if you can-book Blizzard"
    Niki
    "The best way to see the whitsundays is on a yacht & this is the creme de la creme! Stunning boat, great skipper & the lovely Lauren crewing. No more than 10 guests. Can't recommend it enough"
    Lance
    "Hi Lizzie Just updating you on our weekend trip out on Blizzard. We had a marvelous time and the weather was great. We did all the activities, saw wonderful scenes and snorkelling with the fish and turtles was terrific. And we had a wonderful group of people with us. Lots of fun. Thanks for all your help. Cheers Elaine "
    "Thanks to Kirsten and Mr Travel for booking Sue and myself On Blizzard, yes it was brand new as you told us, it was. We had a truly fabulous time.
