These locations can include Chalkies Bay, Blue Pearl Bay, Luncheon Bay and Border Island. These tropical waters are filled with tropical fish and turtles year round!

    Fun filled day with spectacular views

    The trip feels like an exclusive one since they take us to secluded places to snorkel and soak up the sun over white sand. Less people on board means extra personal attention. Captain Taz will make sure you are never bored with his 360s and zigzags over the sea. Deck hand Will fills in with his awesome sense of humor. The equipment were of good quality. Overall value for Money and much more fun is ensured than big cruises. Go for it!!!

    Manta rays and turtles

    Such a great day out. Adrenaline filled from as soon as you step on the boat. The snorkelling was fantastic, lunch was great and Whitehaven Beach is a dream. Best of all Manta rays and turtles came out to play.
