“Literally paradise! 10/10 is an understatement! first of all a massive thank you to our skippers Jayden & Kane who went out of their way to be amazing hosts! A group of 10 of us went on the ride to paradise tour and it blew us all away. We seen whales on our first boat ride, snorkeled with fish as colorful as the rainbow and were lucky enough to get close and personal with a big green sea turtle... amazing!! The resort was like the cover of a magazine, each room feeling like the interior of my dreams and more activities to entertain the lot of us! The staff were so accommodating and the food was delicious, they even catered for needs that weren't specified on the forms and it all came out 5-star! Thank you so much for having us, we will be planning our next vacay soon! Love Sharky”

“Amazing Time! This has to be one of my favorite things I’ve done on the coast so far!! A friend recommended this boat to me after she did it and I can see why!!. Tin Tim and Rahn were awesome!! The boat had great vibes, sleeping out on deck was so cool. The food was super good. Whitehaven beach was incredible, we were the first group there, definitely worth the early get up. Definitely saw more fish snorkeling here than in cairns....most of us wanted to go again by the time we were back in port, most definitely recommend this boat!!”
