"We had a really enjoyable day. Whitehaven is a must see. JJ and Chris were great guides, very entertaining and informative. Would highly recommend!"

"All-day trip visiting Whitehaven lookout, then Whitehaven beach for a dip. You will never see a beach as nice as this with amazingly soft cool sand. Then off to the two best spots to snorkel (where the locals go.) A first time snorkeler, blown away by the bountiful fish and coral to see. One fish was so big and friendly, you just can't imagine what its like being that close until you do it yourself. A big turtle swam straight under me, amazing. The Skipper and Guide looked after us so well, and the seating on the boat gave absolutely everyone the best view"

"We looked at what was on offer of all the trips to Whitehaven from Airlie Beach and Thundercat looked best value for money and offered the things we wanted to do. WOW far exceeded our expectations and would do this again in a heart beat. From the minute we left to the minute we arrived back, everything was super organised, efficiently run and just a fabulous day. Mark, Mick & Ben were just fantastic and so enthusiastic about the operation that you just got wrapped up in. Breathtaking views and scenery at every turn and Whitehaven was just magical. The food provided was fresh, well displayed and everything was on offer. This definitely was a bucket item list ticked!"

"We had the most wonderful time and the crew were so kind to our little 8 year old that was a little scared at times due to the rough waves! The tour was everything you promised and more â€“ Great value for money! We also went out to the Outer Reef on another tour and much preferred our Thundercat experience. "

"If you are looking for a fun day with some time on the water, go for the Thundercat. The crew is very funny, looks after you and very safe and professional. The weather wasnt the greatest, sea was very choppy, my wife was also 6 months pregnant. However, despite all this, the crew looked after us very well made sure everything was fine. The Thundercat is a specially designed boat that offers a very smooth ride, even in tough conditions. Thank you very much, you made our day!"
