customer testimonials

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

“I can’t recommend Thundercat enough!! Did it with my husband and we had the most spectacular day. We’ve done a few tours of The Great Barrier Reef and surrounding islands and this was by far the best. The crew, Cam and Mick, we’re excellent. Cam’s passion and enthusiasm for the islands and marine life, beams out of him and his knowledge was impressive. So friendly! It was relaxed, fun and so enjoyable. The lunch was great, all home made. Definitely above par in comparison to some big budget tours. Plenty of time to explore Whitehaven Beach and so much to see when snorkelling. The experience with the fish in Manta Ray Bay will have us talking about it for years to come. Please do this trip, you won’t be disappointed. 5 stars! Thank you Red Cat for an unforgettable day.”

“Brandon and Travis took us on a great tour with the Tongarra boat, we went to great snorkeling locations seeing sharks, and swimming with turtles and massive tropical fish. The food was tasty and cooked from scratch by Brandon and Trav and they made sure that we all had a really fun trip - well done guys!”

“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! ”
