Great trip to discover the Whitsundays!

Me and my friend had an amazing trip on Mandrake! Dan and Tom did their best to satisfy their guests and we can say we were really lucky! Weather was perfect and we went to so many beautiful places with the boat and snorkeling. Being the first ones on Whitehaven Beach was definitely amazing. Thanks again!

Awesome trip - highly recommended

Our Skipper Greg and Deckhand Michael were amazing and funny! Great sense of humour and a good group (only 14 people which makes it great)!! This is not a party boat - we all had fun with a few drinks though. Great route with amazing landscape, snorkeling etc.. Michael cooked us delicious meals and we all felt very welcome on their "home" :) I would totally recommend this tour to everyone who wants a mix of snorkeling, chilling, beach and a small bunch of awesome people!

Lovely trip

We were the first ones who arrived to the lookout and to the whiteheaven beach, other boats arrive later. It was great experience to be there before the growds and have enough time and space to take pictures. Sailing staff was very friendly and told us lots of stories about wildlife, Australia, sailing etc. Snorkeling was good- saw lots of fish and corals. Food was amazing. Would recommend the tour for not party people.

Dear Karolin thank you for your lovely email and we are very happy you had a lovely trip. The over night sailing trip is something special. We miss the crowds at the more popular locations. Our staff are passionate about giving you an awesome experience and have great stories about all things Australia and the Whitsundays sea animals, flora and fauna.

Great Crew and people but sad booking practise.

We booked Mandrake and seconds later we received a mail, that the tour is cancelled and we will be on a different boat (ofc without offering a refund!) We looked for a sailing boat with only few guests and were now on a large trimaran with lots of people. The great crew (Greg, Will and Michael) luckily made it still an awesome tour. But if you want to experience what you booked you should better chose a different company!

Hello Jasper, We are grateful for your review, we appreciate that even though it was not the tour you originally booked, you still had an awesome tour on-board Avatar with our crew. We are sorry Mandrake had to be stood down unfortunately sometimes we are not able to avoid this. Thanks again, OzSail Team.

not the best

They cancelled our tour one day before departure so we had to wait and go on another boat the next day. Even though all the people in the boat were pretty chill and easy going, they treated us as little kids, we didn’t had time to relax and just enjoy the tour.

Hi Muriel, We are sorry to hear about your experience with us. Unfortunately during our quiet season occasionally we have to cancel trips and find alternatives to our guests, hence why you had the opportunity to move to another trip the next day. If you had any issues with our crew onboard, please contact our reservations team on [email protected] or directly to our Manager at [email protected] We would love to hear more about your experience so we can address the issue. We appreciate any feedback, so thank you. The OzSail Team
