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!

    Great fun experience

    If you are looking for the perfect day to visit the Whitsundays Zig Zag is made for you. We had some adrenaline with the speed boat, we saw a lot of different fish during the two snorkeling sessions, we had a great lunch on the beach and we even went to the lookout point to see Whitehaven beach! The crew is friendly and will adapt the day depending on the weather. We recommend Zig Zag to everyone.

    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!!!

    So much fun

    This adventure was so much fun! They went to great lengths to ensure that each visitor had a wonderful experience. They sought the best snorkeling locations they could find for our group, and were even out on the water with us, attempting to point out where some turtles were. They were informative and engaging throughout the tour. Lunch was tasty and filling. There was plenty of food and water for everyone. Time spent on the beach was fulfilling. There was plenty of time to eat, sunbathe, and enjoy the scenery. They suggested hiking up to the top of the hill for an incredible view of the area, and we got some terrific photos. Our group had a wonderful time. Thank you.

    An exciting & memorable tour for all ages!

    The Zig Zag tour was amazing! The boat was speedy, fun & fast all whilst being entertained by the crew. Visiting islands and magical beaches was just perfection - the crew knew their stuff & had us snorkelling areas that weren't contested with other cruises. The food was delicious, healthy and plentiful. Be sure to book your tour with Zig Zag, you won't be disappointed!
