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 !!

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.
