Would absolutely do again

18 guests and 3 crew hence a pretty nice little group and definitely not too crowded. The crew gave clear instructions as to what and what not to do and if you followed them there won't be any drama in contrast to what I've read in one or another comment here. A real plus: We arrived first on Whitsunday Island and had beautiful photo opportunities of the beach without any people on it! Meals, as well as tea and coffee are provided, even though no gourmet food but what can you expect. Little bummer for my trip was the bad weather but that's nothing the crew can control.

Wonderful whitsundays

had a fantastic time with the freight train crew. first day spent sailing out and then swimming at whitehaven beach. dinner and drinks docked in a little bay for the night, and then a day of snorkelling. we were lucky enough to see dolphins. the skipper kevin is a big character (certainly a lover of all the bikini clad girls on the boat!), but has a passion for sailing and this beautiful area, and kept a great social atmosphere going on the boat. would certainly recommend!

Fun experience with a great crew and boat

I had the BEST experience! The 3 snorkelling spots were outstandingly beautiful and we has them to ourselves which really made a difference and made it feel more personal. The crew were super fun and lovely. Surprisingly comfy beds. Food was nice. I was quite selfconscious getting in the little dingy (imagine beached whale) but Chelsey made me feel fine about it and super reassured me. Coming from the UK you have to be aware that Kev is very down to earth and no-shit, listen to him and respect the boat and his instructions and you'll be fine.

I thought do the wrong choice at the beginning but after the second days, I realised It was what I was looking for! It’s not a big compagny like others because the owner has choosed to share his passion with small crew (18 max) and do not offer his deal via tour operators. The boat it’s not big but it looks like a family trip and this is the best experience you can have on whitsunday. I enjoyed my 2days on the boat with them and I can recommend to everyone to do it because it was incredible! Thanks Freight train and hope the best for you in the futur... French team for ever
