We had an absolutely incredible trip, we were on a beautiful Catamaran boat. The three crew were great, they cooked all of our meals and we were NEVER hungry, so much food! Tim was great, walked us up to the lookout over Whitehaven beach and boated us around to all of our snorkel locations. We were the first at every spot and the last to leave. We had Whitehaven to ourselves for the first part of the morning! Same with the snorkel locations, first there and last to leave. The sunsets were incredible and everyone was so friendly and nice on the boat, it can be as chill or as party as you make it. Only thing I would recommend is to take LOTS of sunscreen and a hat as there isn't much shade on the boat and the Sun is Strong! Also if you have your own snorkel then take it as the ones on the boat are pretty average...but good enough :) This was the best thing we did on our roadtrip of East Australia, would 100% recommend! THANKS SO MUCH! xx

The whole crew aboard the avatar helped make this trip amazing. The whitsundays and it's wildlife if are a real gem on the East coast but this was made an even better trip by the atmosphere on the boat. Although no bed sizes were modest this was to be expected when on a boat trip. The food was to a high standard and plentiful. I would happily book again.!!

couldn't have asked for a better trip! The crew was awesome and gave us lots of information about the places we went to and what the schedule was. We got up early to be at Whitehaven Beach before all the other tourists and got nice pictures. The food is super delicious and there is loads. The atmosphere on the boat is very relaxed and in the evening it's fine to sit around and have some drinks. The snorkeling was great too and we saw some big fish and a turtle! Thanks a lot to the crew for the great trip!

As I'd never been in a kayak before, I was unsure of this experience... but so pleased we gave it a go. The operator was friendly, polite, & very informative. Definitely kayak around to the bay, as this is where we saw the most turtles. Actually saw more turtles here, than we did during our whole 2wk stay in Airlie Beach. If you're keen to see turtles, then this is the place. Maybe we were lucky on this particular day, as there's no guarantees....but definitely worth a try, given it was a cheap couple of hours!

After arriving in Airlie beach during a potential cyclone we weren’t very sure if we could do anything enjoyable. Then we found the kayaking and paddle boarding experience. The clouds parted and the sun came shining out. We paid for four hours in the end and really got to know the wildlife, turtle bay and islands. The Greek goddess instructor was absolutely wonderfully helpful and fun to talk with and helped my partner to feel one with the waves. We will definitely be coming back to find more. We saw a manatee, fish and lots of turtles. It was pretty windy but for two people who aren’t in the best of fittness (as we now realise) it was really enjoyable and worth it (no pain, no gain) thank you very much! We will be back xoxox

Carl, Jo and Lauren were a great crew to host us sailing around the whitsundays. They checked in with us all at the start to find out what we wanted most from the trip and then made sure we did that over the 2 days. Carl had some great knowledge that he shared with us about sailing and updated us regularly with where we were and where we’d been. They got everyone involved with the sailing as well which made it a unique experience Only note I would say to improve would be to have a few bean bags or deck chairs around for people to sit as your back does start to ache after a while of sitting on the deck with no back support for 2 days

Could not fault this trip! Matty, sammy and Carl were the most friendly staff, so knowledgable and great banter! Asked what we wanted to achieve at the start and made sure we got to see everything we wanted- I wanted to see the smallest sand island and they took us there! Great atmosphere for young people who don’t want party party and just want to chill, chat and enjoy the Whitsundays. Really clean boat, beautiful to sunbathe on top with the sound of waves as you sail along. Sammy made great food with more than enough for everyone- we took snacks and didn’t touch them! They drop you off at the beach to do the hill inlet walk and let you snorkel free while they keep an eye so you never feel constrained by time or typical tour group mentality. Even saw (and heard!) whales, turtles, giant fish and beautiful coral. Thank you guys so much for such a beautiful weekend- would totally recommend these guys!

What an amazing 2 days on the Matador with an amazing fun crew! The weather forecast was definitely not on our side for this trip. The first reef was ok - lots of fish but the reef itself has had suffered lots of damage from different cyclones. The second stop was amazing. Tons of beautiful fish, and we've got to meet Big George and Boy George. The rest of our monday was enjoyed in very wet rainy weather with lots of hot coffee. Dinner was served at our overnight stop and we even saw a shark! Day 2 started early and off we went to Whitehaven. 3 h was enough time for tons of selfies, exploring the area, going for a swim and enjoying this always changing beach! Go! 5☆!

I've been on a fair few cruises in Australia, and this is without a doubt the best one I've experienced so far! What appealed to me was the non-commercial feel, run by 3 awesome Aussie guys that really have a passion and joy doing what they are doing. We we're around 20-25 pax on the boat, all in their 20-30s (no family's or kids yay) which connected quick and became a big family and had great fun exploring Whitsundays together! BYO is great :)
