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

A great deal

We highly recommend this journey. To sum up a great value for money trip , beautiful beaches, a nice adventure and nice backpackers encounter! + : arriving in white even beach first in the morning before all other tourists arrivals , spending a night on the boat with sunset watching, the Australian burger and apple pie, snorkeling times, all included package . - : hard to sleep on the boat, Kevin specific humour :). I would definitely do it again !!
