We had the BEST time cruising around the Whitsundays with Captain Brent and Skipper/Dive Instructor Maddie on the Kiana. They made sure everyone was safe, comfortable, and well- fed. They also shared their deep knowledge and appreciation of the ocean with us. The upper deck of the boat was spacious and the sleeping quarters were compact but comfortable. The showers were hot, and there was plenty of beverages and tea on board. The food was spectacular! We had lamb roast, spag bol, cheesecake and tons of snacks. We saw stingrays, turtles, a trillion types of fish and even a sea snake (from a safe distance on the boat)! It was the sailing trip of a lifetime, and I would 100% recommend it to anyone who is looking for a bit of adventure. Thank you, Brent and Maddie, for a truly wonderful time!

Despite it being rainy for 2/3 days on this boat, Brent and Maddie made sure we had an excellent time visiting the Whitsundays and diving/snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. The crew's enthusiasm, professionalism, and expert knowledge ensured we got the best experience possible. The boat itself had ample room both outside and in to relax while wailing. The sleeping space is cozy but the beds were comfortable and I slept well. The food was excellent, and you can buy beer and wine with meals as it's a fully licensed ship. I highly recommend this trip for someone who wants a more in depth and personalized experience compared to a crowded day trip.

I can't speak highly enough about the crew at Kiana, Brent and Maddie made our trip unforgettable! Both of them are extremely knowledgeable about the reef, and they share their knowledge in a very humble and patient way. The food was amazing, everything was fresh and tasted amazing. I would recommend taking the 3-day trip to anyone wanting to experience the Whitsundays at its best. Kiana visits the Outer Reef, so you'll get to see more fishes and other animals than in the inner reef.

Brent and Maddie gave us a really great few days on the water. They were both incredibly knowledgeable, accomodating and friendly. It was basically like hanging out with friends for a few days. Also the food on board was genuinely amazing. Fresh, healthy, home-cooked food 3 times a day. 100% recommend a trip with these folks for anyone headed to the Whitsundays and wanting to dive or snorkel on the reef.

Our time with Kiana couldn’t have been better. The boat was comfortable and the captain, Brent, was very experienced, wise and funny. You can tell he loves the boat, the sea, the reef, and his job. He would tell us all about the reef, the navigation and lots of sea stories. We felt really safe and in really good hands. The rest of the crew, Maddie and Yanis, were amazing as well. We snorkeled and went diving for three times with Maddie as our instructor; we loved it and loved her. She does a really good job. The chosen spots were amazingly beautiful. We enjoyed gorgeous sunsets and would sit at night to have a chat and stare at the stars. We had the best time. The food was cooked by Yanis and was really good and elaborated. He is an amazing chef and he will be an even better marine biologist! The only suggestion would be having a couple of spare plant based milks for breakfast in case of lactose intolerance/vegan. Although there was not a full vegan option, we could enjoy most of the really nice veggie dishes!!! Thanks again for the amazing time! With love, the catalans :)
