"If you look for a fun, leisure and luxurious trip, look no further. They did not oversell it, we had a private room which was quite big and very comfortable. There was a very nice outside bathroom with 2 showers and a bathtub to be shared with the other private room. Food was really good and plentiful. The crew Coco and Jayjay were very nice and friendly and they answered all questions. The resort is absolutely amazing, the staff there is very friendly and helpful. After a long day of adventuring it was so nice to go back for a hot bath! Thank you Coco and Jayjay and the rest of the team at the resort ! "

"Really enjoyed this trip. Booked it last minute and glad I did. The resort was gorgeous and had plenty to keep us entertained. From table tennis and pool to kayaking and paddle boarding. The food was also delicious and we were able to bring our own drink. At night we lit the fire pit and just chilled. Thank you to Billy and Cane who were so accommodating and made the trip relaxing and fun! The trip to Whitehaven beach was also amazing and we had the perfect amount of time! Would definitely recommend to all!!"

"10/10 experience! Billy and Dylan where the most amazing host. They made us laughed, they showed us the most amazing places, they cooked yummy food and met every single of our picky demands. "if you don't enjoy yourself staying in a billionaire resort, swimming in one of the most beautiful beaches, cruising around paradise in an awesome boat and meeting awesome ocean creature. It's simple, life is not for you""

"Bily and Ricky made this experience incredible! They were both very personable and engaging all while remaining very professional. Paradise Cove Resort is beautiful and worth the extra expense. Fabulous outdoor showers and bath and the common areas are great for socializing and kicking butt in flip cup. All of the spots we stopped were picturesque and we had ample time to explore, snorkel and swim. The boat was also such an experience. Awesome scenic ride. It was definitely a Ride 2 Paradise!"
"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!"
"My ride to paradise experience was amazing! The staff and crew were very friendly and helpful. Jay Jay and Rolly were the best!!! Would do it again and recommend to friends/other travellers. Definitely best part of my East Coast trip. The resort is absolutely beautiful as well. Very happy with my experience."
"We just came back from Ride to Paradise 3 day tour and we totally loved it! The food, the music, the boat trips were PERFECT. We are all just amazed by the whole experience. Go for it!"
"It was just AMAAAAZING!!!! Everything was perfectly organised, the food, snorkelling... the resort is incredible, you have everything and it seems that you are on your own island!!

I will recommend this tour to EVERYONE, you will not regret!!!!"
"Incredible! Perfect balance of chill, exploring and adventure! The resort was unbelievable, better then what I had imagined & saw in the brochure. Food was soooooooooo yummy! Whitehaven beach was breathtaking! The snorkeling locations we were taken too were so beautiful, better then I saw in Cairns and I even got to swim with 5 turtles! Big thank you to the crew for making me and everyone feel so welcome. I honestly did not want to leave."

"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."
"My husband and I just arrived back after a trip with Ride to Paradise just wanted to say how amazing it was, from start to finish. Billy and Steve were awesome, super knowledgeable, helpful and approachable. Everything you would want! The food was so good, the best I have eaten in ages! Thank you!"

"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!"
