Becky Low , 24 Mar 22
No better way to see the Whitsundays in my opinion - access to the best snorkelling and beaches! Once in a lifetime experience - perfect balance of relaxation and adventure - incredible snorkelling, great food, stunning star gazing at night - we even got to see baby turtles and squid one night !
Emily, 17 Dec 21
Wow!! What can I say. Had an absolutely incredible 2 days and 2 nights on board the beautiful catamaran that is On Ice!! I was not expecting to have such a comfortable experience on a boat, but On Ice was just perfect for me and my family. We absolutely loved trying out the sea scooter, stand up paddle boards and snorkelling at some beautiful locations! We were also lucky enough to spot a number of turtles on our trip!! The crew were fantastic, and the food was delicious. Not a bad word to say about this trip :)
Hannah, 06 Dec 21
An awesome trip! I was a bit worried at first being a solo traveller however the group was very friendly and welcoming. I really loved that we went straight to Tongue bay on the first day so that we were one of the first people at Whitehaven the following morning! Tommy's playlist and the amazing cookies were an unexpected highlight!
Dan M, 30 Nov 21
