My husband and I did the Reef Ryder fast boat tour with 8 others, us two being the oldest (in our 60s). We arrived at one beach walking up to Hill Inlet for the amazing view of Whitehaven Beach. Plenty of time to walk along the beautiful white powdery sand and some places saw a tinge of pink sand. Enjoyed... More

I had a great time with my friends on the incredibly fast jet boat. You will definitely get soaked so be prepared for an amazing time!

We did a snorkel on Chalkies Beach. How thrilling to be able to walk out to the coral reef and experience such beauty. Then we went to Whitehaven to see this beach which TripAdvisor ranked best in the world. It is a fabulous beach which goes on forever and the sand is just like powder. This trip is a real... More

We did the three hour 2 n 1 tour which left from Hamilton Island-did an hour of snorkeling at Chalkies beach and then an hour of play at Whitehaven beach. Snorkeling was awesome. Reef was beautiful and saw lots of fish. Perfect amount of time for our family with two young kids. Boat ride to and from was only 30... More

Day trip, great way to see Whitehaven beach, national park and do a spot of snorkelling. Left the harbour about 9 and return at 5pm. Very well organised and timed. Went to a few snorkelling spots very close to the beach. Great if you're not confident in the water. Saw lots of fishes, highly recommend!

Fantastic! Great schedule! Amazing snorkelling. Everything was spot on time and no time wasted. Lunch was good. Would thoroughly recommend this - particularly good for a family with kids. Worth taking some extra snacks as it is a long, high energy day for kids. Would definitely come back again!

For an hour we had thrills and spills, dead stops and spins in a jet boat driven by the capable Scott. The jet boat ride included a few stops with history of the islands and points of scenic interest. Well worth the expense.

After reading the wonderful reviews, and having been to the island before we were excited to try some water sports here. The two girls at reception on Sunday 12th March morning were really unhelpful. We initially inquired about parasailing and they told us that you couldn't go parasailing unless they could gather 4 people for the trip. Fair enough. We... More

Hi, Thankyou for your feedback! I am SO disappointed to hear that this was your experience with our company! This is NOT AT ALL WHAT WE EXPECT FROM OUR STAFF!

No four hour round trip to the pontoons on the outer edge of the reef required - a quick 30 minute trip will get you here and the team will look after you. We went out to Chalkies Beach and Whitehaven on the Reef Ryder with this team. They supplied snorkling gear, including stinger suits, and we walked straight off... More
