customer testimonials

Here is what just a few of our happy customers have to say

“Our original tour with a different company was cancelled, and how lucky we were it was because we got to experience Thundercat Whitsundays one day tour which was fantastic. Mark and Cam couldn’t have been better hosts and as our tour was only half full they took us to an extra snorkeling spot and longer at the beach, how incredible is that for service. We saw a vast array of animals including swimming with a sea turtle, rays and the views were out of this world. I couldn’t recommend this company more and every time we are back in the Whitsundays they will be the first people we go to. Ohh and the food was great aswell :) overall one of the best experiences we have had with a tour company”

“My sister and I were recommended the 2 day/2 night tongarra trip by friends in Sydney and it really didn’t disappoint. Trav and Tony were awesome hosts and really showed us the best of the Whitsundays with a trip to Whitehaven beach and some cool snorkelling spots. Sleeping under the stars was amazing too - would definitely recommend this boat!”

“The Red Cat Adventures 2 night trip and stay in Paradise Cove Resort with JJ and Chris was a huge highlight of our 3-week trip in Australia! The resort itself was spectacular and well suited for friends, couples or families. The views and the amenities were outstanding and the food was delicious! Not to mention the amazing snorkeling and Whitehaven Bay. JJ and Chris made the trip incredibly positive for us with their outgoing attitudes and caring and friendly natures. Thanks for a great trip! ”
