Fast speed boat getting to destinations with ease and allowing for plenty of time for fun activities. Friendly staff (Amy and crew). Also enjoyed a bit of history about the local islands from the captain.

Vicki W November 2021

Fantastic day out. We went to two amazing snorkelling spots (rivaling the Great Barrier Reef for fish and coral) and the walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout is a must. The view of Whitehaven Beach from the lookout is spectacular. The crew onboard our cat, Cam & Eleshia really made the day. You could tell they were passionate about their job and the environment and made the trip heaps of fun. We were really lucky with the weather too. Definitely put this on you bucket list.

The red cat adventures tour to Whitehaven beach was an extremely enjoyable and memorable experience. The snorkelling spots were incredible and the boat ride was fun, entertaining and comfortable. The crew on board made the experience extra special. The food provided was delicious and the use of snorkelling equipment was convenient. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting as it was a great experience!

Dave and Lenore (or LeCore not sure on spelling) were amazing they were fun and interactive but not over the top where you wish they'd just go and let you enjoy the trip for those that wanted a bit more of a guided tour the option was there we chose to go off on our own and explore and it was amazing such an awesome trip 100% recommended.

Jodie W November 2021

Had a great day out on the water. The staff were amazing. Lots of laughs and clear safety processes in place. Food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely free time spot on the most beautiful beach and incredible snorkeling experience. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a fun relaxing day.

A breathtaking trip to the worlds best beach made better by a knowledgable and friendly crew, the day was probably one of the most memorable of our lives - 10/10 would recommend.

LiamRoosy November 2021

What an amazing day. Filled with inquisitive trivia & titillating conversations. The beach was beautiful as well as the coral reef. Jamie & Alesha have a great understanding of the local ecosystem and get the fish all around you. Alesha is easily the funniest tour guide I have ever had. Marcus' skills in driving kept us safe and together even as the group spread out along the beautiful reef, he got us to and from where we needed to be faster than any other options. Homemade brownies and more than enough food. Even catering for vegans & gluten intolerant passengers. Incredible experience and the best value. Would 100% recommend

Heather W October 2021

We had the most amazing day on Thundercat! The experience absolutely cannot be beaten - the crew were amazing, the food delicious and the boat was very stable so no sea sickness. At our first snorkelling spot we saw amazing coral and heaps of fish, then our second stop at Mantaray Bay was like nothing else - we were able to get so close to massive Batfish, Wrasse, and Giant Trevally. The final stop at Hill Inlet and Whitehaven Beach was amazing. Perfect amount of time to admire the views, go for a swim in the beautiful clear water, and just relax on the beach. Such a great way to get to see everything the Whitsundays has to offer, and the crew and the whole team at Red Cat do so much to help make the day perfect.
