Note from The owner at Freight Train Whitsundays
“Hi my name is Captain Kev and I can guarantee you the price on Bookme.com.au is the total price! THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO PAY! You may be asking why so cheap? Well I drive the boat, I organise and shop the food you will eat, I take care of my maintenance and I own the yacht myself. This all saves a massive amount of money on wages that I have passed on to you. On this tour we include all the below. I hope to meet you soon. Kev“
