I booked Reefsleep because I wanted to experience the Great Barrier Reef in a way that was exciting and a bit different. Reefsleep offered that! Really the best part about reefsleep is being there when most other people aren't. There's a maximum of nine people allowed to stay overnight on the reef so you've got lots of room around the...

As if Whitehaven isn't great enough you now have the option to have a play on a seabob. This is an awesome addition to the Whitehaven tour and seabobs are seriously fun, easy to use, and will be sure to put a smile on your face. Special thanks to the guys who run the tour, Oliver and Tim you were... More

We jumped on board a ferry to daydream island for the day! The staff were absolutely lovely, there was free tea and coffee though working the hot water tap out was a bit of a trick! It was smooth sailing from there, the ferry was on time both ways! If anything I felt it was slightly over priced but can... More

We had a fantastic day out to Whitehaven Beach from Hamilton Island, including a snorkel at Chalkies Beach using the Seabobs. Those things are amazing. Thanks to Oliver, Matthew, Scotty and Sam. Double thumbs up.

My wife and I just took two separate trips with this company. The staff is amazingly accommodating, professional and first class! Riana gave us an awesome tour of Whitehaven Beach and the Inlet. Natalie was the perfect hostess on our overnight stay at the Great Barrier Reef. Service is impeccable. Went on my very first dive at the Reef. Awesomeness.... More

My husband and I went on the Reef Sleep adventure February 8 and 9th. Our hostess for the time out there was "Emma" who treated us royalty. At 3pm, everyone but the 9 people who have paid to do the Reef Sleep, leave by boat and the pontoon is ours until the boat arrives back about 11 the next morning.... More

We especially enjoying the free tea and coffee anytime. I would have liked to know more about the islands we were passing and was... More
