The crew of 'Handsome Dave' and 'Magic Mike' where awesome and very friendly and most of all had get knowledge of the area and locations. The areas we visited (Whitehaven, snorkerling the reef) were amazing.

A must do trip visiting the Whitsundays! Very impressed by the fact we were able to be picked up from Daydream Island! Seats were saved for us and we were introduced straight away to our hosts Amy and Captain Mick, who warmly greeted us to our group. We started by going over to Whitsunday Island where Amy explained to us she would be at X then Y but allowed us to have choice of what we wanted to do. Up on the hill inlet, Amy was informative, providing us with information some others may not have received. On the whole we had plenty of time on the island - the perfect amount that meant we could do and see all we wanted to and not start to get bored! From here we had some lunch whilst looking for turtles and even for a vegetarian, my dietary needs were covered greatly! I was very impressed by the quantity and quality of food (which I must admit, prior to the trip I was a bit worried about!). Even the snacks offered throughout the day, the delicious brownies and fruits sticks, were lovely! (Note that drinks are available to purchase onboard at a reasonable price too!)
After lunch we made our way to our snorkelling spots and this was definitely something spectacular! We made two stops - one focusing on seeing different types of fish and one focussing on the coral. It was amazing to see two different parts of the reef, and in my opinion both as spectacular! They have really done a great job of picking these locations! All in all it was one of my best days in Australia so far, and a big thank you to Amy and Mick who helped make the day such a success! You guys were great!

The day was perfect.. A speedy trip to Whitehaven giving more time to enjoy why you were on the tour.
Plenty of time swimming or relaxing then lunch then off to 2 different snorkeling places. I had never snorkled but that was no problem . MIka instructed everyone on how to do it. Our safety was a priority for them keeping an Eye on everyone in the water.
Would highly recommend this tour company
