customer testimonials

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

“The tour with Thundercar was really great. The guide, the driver and the captain were all so enthusiastic, I really enjoyed the trip very much. The boat ride out is cool (speed boat experience with some nic moves around the waves accompanied by some cool music), The lookout and Whitehavenn beach were awsome, the snorkling with the most fish I’ve ever seen all around you. The guides really love what they do and really try their utmost to make you the most enjoyable day you can imagine. The trip with Thundercat is highly recommended! Well done, guys.”

“I've just come back from the most amazing weekend. It was just fun from start to finish. A lot of the success was down to Charlotte (aka Shetland ) and to Kane who did so much and wanted everyone to enjoy themselves. I absolutely loved the boat outings. The speed of the boat was fantastic and the island we visited was unbelievable. The snorkelling was fun too. The food was great, the beds were comfortable and it was a great experience. I also think the staff at the office are great as getting properly prepared for the tour is important.I would definitely recommend!”

“The BEST holiday tour we have ever been on! From the moment we jumped in the bus we knew we were in for a day to remember. The boys were amazing at everything especially with the kids. Fantastic snorkeling, awesome boat ride, good food, great guided bushwalk, good company with lots of laughs! Will go again when we come back! Well done ThunderCat!”
