After morning tea, at 11am arrive at your first snorkelling destination, our crew will give you an introduction to snorkelling and take you ashore by dinghy to snorkel from the safety of a protected beach, a great way to gain confidence in the water.

"Crew was brilliant always pointing out the best areas while we were sailing and skipper spotted wild dolphins before we did. Snorkelling by blue coal Island was awesome, so many beautiful fish and coral to see. Got to Whitehaven early the next day and walked to the lookout point first, was speechless. Once on the beach the sand was so soft and spent the morning lazing in the water with fish and stingrays swimming round me. Wonderful food was provided throughout the weekend and sleeping on deck was fun under the stars saw a shooting star was lucky to see that. Thank you to the awesome crew for taking me to Paradise xx"

"A great trip! Great weather, with even better banter! Highlights included seeing turtles, dolphins, shooting stars, the sunset and Whitehaven Beach (and finding out the boys love clash of clans). Would definitely recommend this boat, one night and two full days is the perfect amount of time to get a good tan and see a lot of what's on offer at the Whitsundays! The three kiwis make a great crew and cater for all your needs!"

"It was one of the best things we did so far in Australia. The crew was amazing, motivated and very friendly who made sure that everybody had a good time. We went snorkelling at two great spots, one with lots of turtles which werent afraid at all and the other place was perfect for lots of fish and coral. Its also possible to use one of the kayaks, but we preferred to stay in the water snorkelling. The food was really good. I would truly recommend this trip."

"Fantastic crew that tried to make everyone feel at ease. The crew did their best to give to passengers the best experience. Meals were very abundant, lot of snorkelling (and kayaks for those who wanted to try), nights under the stars, amazing sunsets and sunrise. The two days were unforgettable."

"On first morning/afternoon of the trip we got to visit the amazing Whitehaven beach and spend like 3 or 4 hours there. Probably the nicest beach Ivve ever seen. The crew lead a hike to the viewpoint to overlook the beach and explain the history and general information about the area. This was really interesting. This was followed by two great snorkel stops. I couldnt recommend this trip enough. Crew where incredible and willing to answer any question you threw at them. The food was fantastic and plentiful. The sights will blow your mind! BOOK IT."

"Had such an amazing trip - so friendly and relaxing. Enjoyed the snorkelling and kayaking. Just wish the water was warmer! Kate was a fantastic chef, and no idea how she managed to feed 26 of us all so well! Leon was full of knowledge and it was so nice to have someone genuinely passionate about what they do. Dave was hilarious, loved his stories about the sharks v crocs. Thank you so much for making this boatride so fantastic. Kirsty, Scotland"
