customer testimonials

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

“Had an awesome day on the Thundercat. First stop was beautiful Whitehaven beach where were saw many rays followed by a well organised lunch on board. First snorkelling destination was teeming with fish. Water was a bit fresh but the 5mm shortie wetsuits kept the cold at bay. Second snorkelling spot had lots of coral varieties also saw a wobbegong. The ride from and back to port was very choppy at times but heaps of fun as we ploughed through the waves. Definitely take warm clothes in winter to pull over your togs for the trip back. Huge shout out to Korey and John (the crew) who did a great job all day and were extremely helpful with all aspects of the day.”

Anne Taylor, Thundercat - July 2022

“Amazing day on the water with Micca, Ben and Taylor. Went on the tour with high expectations after we booked it the day before but the day still exceeded our expectations. Really fun day and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in airlie. Snorkelling at cockatoo point was a highlight and when we were having lunch after whitehaven we even saw a turtle swimming by! All the guides were also very knowledgeable, obviously cared a lot for the area and were happy to answer any questions.”
