Great trip and amazing deal from BookMe.

I use Book Me for all my bookings of trips etc and I save so much money every time! Can not recommend using bookme enough! Prices are almost too good to be true but I can assure you the prices on this site are 100% legit. Some days you can score an absolute steal of a deal! As for my trip, Matador Whitsundays was such a fun time and I made lots of friends during our sailing adventure onboard. 10/10! Food and snorkelling locations were just unreal and I loved the interactive sailing feature!! Thank you Matador Whitsundays and Thank you BookMe!

Sadly disappointing

Sadly disappointed. Boat impossible to sleep in at night due to unbearable heat (no fans)or air con. And smell coming from toilets not far from you bed. Banging/lights on and off and very noisy toilet flushing. Had to sleep on hard deck with pillow and sheet. No roll up bed provided. Food was school camp standard. Also no sailing at all. Better tours out there. Deck hands lovely and Whitehaven beach magnificent.

2 days 1 night

Une expérience géniale, une équipe compétente qui nous emmène dans de super endroit. On a pu nager et touché des poissons, regarder le coucher et lever du soleil sur le voilier. Une expérience que je recommande fortement.
