Amazing 2 Days In The Whitsundays

Wow just Wow! - this is the highlight or our 6 week holiday so far. First, we did the day tour on ZigZag, the crew Taz Will and Kelly are super friendly and you could tell they loved their work. We snorkelled and seen lots of fish, coral and 2 turtles. Whitehaven Beach and the lookout was amazing and the lunch was fresh and tasty. In the afternoon we got dropped off at Palm Bay Resort on Long Island. The staff here are also really nice and our room was right by the beach. We spent our time here swimming in the pool and exploring the walks on the island. The next afternoon we caught the boat back to Airlie Beach. We can not believe we only paid 295 for such a fulfilling 2 days. Thank you so much to all the crew at ZigZag and Palm Bay Resort. We absolutely recommend taking this experience. 10/10

Island resort stay with zig zag tour

The best get away I have ever had, I only wish we'd stayed longer. This is a fantastic experience for couples or anyone looking to escape to a beautiful, tranquil and remote island. The Zig Zag tour on the fast boat was awesome, Whitehaven beach was absolutely stunning and snorkeling the reefs was amazing. We will definitely book this again in the future. Just perfect!

A weekend in paradise!

My boyfriend and I, and are two friends, absolutely loved this Island retreat. The whole package was fantastic and I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy a more relaxed and special trip to the Whitsundays. The day tour to the Whitsundays was brilliant with Zig Zag and the staff were so accommodating and friendly. We visited the famous Whitehaven and a few other snorkelling spots and even though it was all within one day it didn’t feel rushed at all. The night at Palm Bay Resort exceed all expectations. There were drinks awaiting our arrival and the staff again were super friendly and were always willing to offer their help and advice. We went on walks around the untouched grounds spotting all sorts of wildlife - wallabies included! We went kayaking and snorkelling in the bay, we enjoyed cocktails in the pool - the whole weekend was fantastic and so well organised. The hut overlooked the beach and was immaculate and had everything you needed. It felt we were the only ones there! Thank you so much - we recommend it to everyone we speak to!

Fun boat with a beautiful resort stay.

Zig Zag tours was excellent! The boat was fun and very speedy across the water. The crew, Kay, Mel and Taz were great, very friendly and helpful at all the stops throughout. The stops were beautiful. Wewere then dropped off at Palm Bay Resort which is stunning! The rainforest right next to the beach. We cooked our own food, provided by Zig Zag for an extra fee and it was delicious! Definitely recommend this option. The facilities at Palm Bay Resort was great as were all the staff and I would stay again. This combo deal was a perfect mix of fun and relaxation.
