Brilliant tour

Absolutely brilliant tour. Scott, our guide, was first class. So funny, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We saw loads in the 3 days but had time to relax and socialise as well. The food was great with plenty to go around. Liv and Elle were really lovely and made sure everyone was having a good time. Can not recommend this trip enough.

Absolutely worth it!

Fraser Island was a lot of fun. It was a different experience to drive in the sand. We saw a lot of different things. Food was delicious and accommodation all right. Friendly stuff. Would have been better with no rain, but it is what it is with the wether. Whitsundays was even better. There was no wind to sail but it was still good. Snorkelling was amazing! You can see so much... food was good as well. It is a really good price for this two tours!

Great Trip, great hosts!

The Fraser Tour was awesome, we had a great group and a great guide (thanks Scotty!) The food was good and there was a lot to see. The Whitsunday Tour was great too, Captain Kev is one of a kind. If you can handle his humour and cursing, you will have a really fun time with him (thanks a lot mate!). We think a one day trip would be enough to explore the Whitsundays but if you like snorkelling, this is your trip.

Not what I expected :(

Quite disappointed with the tour itself. I was lucky that the people in my tour were amazing so we didn’t let the skipper Kev ruin the trip but he really was quite unprofessional. There was no itinerary and they never explained where we were and what we were gonna do. They said they were gonna lay out a map and tell us the activities and locations but that never happened. So we didn’t even know what time to wake up the next day but the skipper just made loud noises at 6 in the morning. We never went to Hamilton Island even though that was mentioned in the tour if it was good weather (and we had the perfect weather for 2 days). The skipper also said that he would’ve taken us to better locations had we just talked to him (???) honestly we did not pay $300 to be treated as if we were freeloaders. Also the tour ended 2 hours earlier than what was written on the tour. But on the bright side, the other 2 staff were really nice and chill tho. Also, the food was delicious!

Fraser Island Tour great, Whitsundays not so much

We had a great time on Fraser Island with a really motivated and knowledgeable guide. Everything was organized well and we had plenty of fun. Everyone took turns driving - as we had only 2 cars for around 15 people some could only drive twice for short turns on the three days. It was fun nonetheless. Whitsundays was different altogether - booking online was no problem at all. But the captain and the crew weren't motivated at all. Dinner wasn't enough for everyone and there were hardly any explanations of what we're doing, too. As we went to the Whitsundays beach they just said "Departing now, don't take towels". Then we had to follow one of the crew, who didn't say anything and in the end just said "We meet back at the boat in 2 hours". He didn't even say where we could go or lead us there. The whole trip was like that - the people around were cool but the crew and the boring snorkeling (not comparable to a proper tour at the Great Barrier Reef) made the trip regrettable.
