"This trip was so awesome! Could not recommend enough. 'Ride to Paradise' was a great way to fit in so much in a small time frame. Leaving at 1pm on Friday, going on a half a million dollar speedboat cruising around the Whitsundays to an awesome snorkel spot where you can snorkel up close and personal with turtles amongst coral, then being taken to a 5 star resort where you can choose between private rooms or awesome fancy dorm rooms. The pool at the resort is HUGE, complete with jacuzzi, stand up paddleboards and kayaks to take out to your own personal beach at your own leisure, or just chill and read a book in the hammocks. There is a group of people on this tour, around 15, so the perfect amount to make great friends or keep to yourself - whatever you want!"

"The accommodation was beautiful and such a lovely break from hostels - a holiday from our holiday! Very glad we had the whole resort grounds to run around rather than being cramped on a boat! The food was really good and the guides Billy and Steve took the time to take us on a wildlife tour in the evening which really added to the experience."

"Ride to Paradise was AWESOME! Steve and Billy great fun and very knowledgeable and looked after us very well. Food was amazing... Blown away by the resort, luxury all the way! The WildCat boat was great for speed to get to us to Whitehaven and snorkelling faster than other boats, so we had more time to snorkel, relax, explore. Overall this trip was amazing!"
