Amazing Tour-MUST DO!

The tour the boys have put together is fantastic! Such friendly guys who went above and beyond to make sure our experience was a great one. From offering extra assistance to get on and off the boat, to telling us local stories of their experiences and about the islands. Be prepared for the walk up to the hill inlet on a humid day, it’s a bit of a struggle so when they say take water, Take Water! The views are breathtaking and worth the walk! The snorkel experience was amazing, as a first timer it was amazing swimming amongst the fish and coral reefs, so Beautiful! Lastly the time we got to spend at Whitehaven beach to have lunch was very relaxing and a great spot to take in the beautiful sand and views, plus have a swim. 10/10 tour, thank you Big Fury Team!

Awesomely amazing!

Big Fury is amazing to go on!! It’s a company that only has the one boat and it shows! The tour was amazing! The guys Brendon and Wazza take you to the best snorkelling spot, give you the best tips about where to go on the reef to see the most! The boat is comfortable and fast! You work up an appetite snorkelling and then walking up to whitehaven look out and the best thing is you don’t get a day old pre packed lunch!! Couldn’t rate the lunch any more if I tried - you get taken around to Whitehaven beach dropped off and make yourself comfy in the shade or in the beach while the guys get lunch set up! Home made rice and pasta salad ( which were awesome) and the BEST potato salad. Huge selection of cold cut meats, prawns, rolls, wraps and fruit! Pigged out and could go for seconds! The whole experience was amazing, the guys are Informative, the boat fast and comfy and then food was way more then expected! And then when going to and from the experience on the boat they bring around snacks!! Book Big Fury! You won’t regret it!

Great Day Out!

Loved the fact that it was a smaller group booking as I’m not really into the big cruise ships that take up to 100s of people. The big fury takes up to 35 and on this specific day there was only 16 people which made the experience more personal. The crew were great! And we even go free transfers to and from the marina. Unfortunately for us we decided to visit the Whitsundays after a cyclone had hit on the outskirts of Australia so snorkelling wasn’t as great as we’d hoped as the water was quite murky. It was still a great swim though and we still tried to see some coral and fish! Lunch was supplied in Whitehaven beach.. Salad, rolls, lunch meats, fruit etc. and the look out was as perfect as all the pictures show it to be! We had a great day!

Awesome !

The tour was really great. Everything was well planned, the size of the group was great and the guides were awesome. The two of them were super nice and funny and made the tour even better. The stops were well planned and there was enough time everywhere. The snorkeling was in a very nice place and the lookout was so beautiful. The lunch was delicious and I would highly recommend the tour with Big Fury!
