"The prima sail boat caters for 12 people and is the ideal setting to capture the majestic beauty of the Whitsunday Islands. Our captain was Thierry and the co-captain (real captain of the ship) was Bec. They are an incredible tag team and duo. Thierry provided us with his vast knowledge of the islands whilst highlighting environmental issues facing Australia. My partner was vegetarian and they were well catered for. It is an intimate setting and the perfect way to get to know people and see the islands. It is a must to do when travelling the East Coast."

"We sailed on the Whitsundays on the Prima boat. I can thoroughly recommend the boat. Steve the skipper was very knowledgeable and very friendly and the decky, Kayleigh, produced some really good food. Steve takes you to snorkelling sites that other boats don't go to, so you get to snorkel in peace! He'll also join you in the water and point out different coral and fish."

"An amazing fun filled time on Prima! Caught up with some old friends and saw the best of Whitsundays... sea eagles, turtles, whales with their calves... just magical. The food was flavoursome and if vegetarian... exceptional! The skipper Craig was so knowledgeable and a great sense of humour! Our host she was caring, thoughtful and full of sailing experience, being a gypsy of the sea! Sleeping rearrangements were clean and comfy! So overall company and all that prima offered exceeded my expectations. Well done for a great business and thank you!"

"Crew was awesome.. helpfull and very friendly.. The spots we have visited too.. but i had two main problems: My girlfriend is vegetarian - we asked for vegetarian meals - but some meals just looked like vegetarian and some were vegetarians and some were absolutely not suitable for vegetarians.. Luckily, we´d expected this and had some stuff úacked with us. The other thing was the boat.. It doesnt look bad and was quite and comfy.. But the deck was painted night(or day) before departure, so the paint eas not completely dry and I dyed my snew shorts.. :-( And the last day the steering went out.. so we couldn´t really sail..Luckily our captain was able to fix it temporarily.. I tried to contact the company when we came back but didnt get any response. "
