Captain Kev is a legend!

I love Captain Kev and his tour! Every single thing about it is amazing. Captain and his crew is so friendly and real deal. The spots he has taken us were just gorgeous. Food was plenty and delicious. Very comfortable to sleep in the boat. All he wants is to make sure everybody is enjoying the experience. After tour he organises a dinner with discount and free beers in a nice pub under his name. He is an awesome guy and the tour is unbelieveble!

Kevs outdone himself!

An authentic trip. You won’t be greeted by any false promises at the door and the trip will exceed your expectations. Several hours on whitehaven beach before the tours arrive, great snorkeling spots and an amazing aussie burger all rolled into one event!

DONT TRUST BAD COMMENTS

Usually we never leave a comment if it a good exp, wich was it. But after seeing all the bad review on this trip we feel like we had to respond to thoses. We almost took another compagny after reading all the bad reviews but finally decided to book with some apprehension. We really dont underdtand those comment the captain is a great man, really funny and real. I think that people who leave those comment expect a 5 star yacht with waiter serving champagne or something aha Great time with freight train, good food (lot to eat), good snorkel sites and way cheaper than the others compagnys go check it out !

Never again with this “captain”

Negative points : Just ask yourself why you don’t get fotos of the cabins : it’s a old boat badly renovate and not confortable at all. You get beetle or cockroaches inside the boat, no foam to seat outside. But the most negative point of this cruise is About the “captain” : this guy make “jokes” really sad, was talking with his customer to put a electric collar dog on one of his crew member to call her... I imagine what he will reply : that humor ! Guy that’s not that it’s only shame. And the guy need to be more hygienic... he’s tossing and spit his mucus in front of his customer : captain be hygienic and stop smoking all times (for respect for no smoker). Like many past reviews : this guy is sexist making many jokes about fat women. We advise the dingo Fraser Island whose is partner about this last point (intolerable in 21th century). Positive points (reason of 2 stars) : Very good atmosphere on the boat with the other customers, the 2 crew helpers are nice, food was great snorkel sites were great. I think it’s the cheapest your on Whitesundays (but I really will choose another one for 50 extra dollars).
