    Half Day Cruise

    , Oct 2021
    Had an amazing time at White Haven Beach (south end) was easy to book and the ride on the air conditioned catamaran with toilet and bar was great did take a little longer waiting at the two stops dropping off and picking up people but didn’t mind the scenery so was all good. I wish there were more shade shelters on the beach only four when we got there and they were already taken By the people from the early morning cruise that didn’t go back as we went on the afternoon one was nice they had sand buckets and paddles boards and fed the fish too and also a lovely afternoon tea on the way back to Airlie and coffee and tea staff were friendly kids loved it actually we all did highly recommend

    We did the half day trip...

    We did the half day trip I didn’t feel like we got much information on the area and the people on the full day got better treatment , I felt more like a number and it was frustrating having to change boats on the return home with a 3 year old and wait in line. It seemed more appropriate for families and elderly, young people are better going on another cruise like they one we did the next day

    A fantastic cruise. Great to have a short stop at both Daydream & Hamilton Island. Comfortable cruising catamaran. Staff very friendly & efficient service. Food & drinks reasonably priced. Whitehaven Beach was stunning & enjoyed our time there. Pleased with did the half day cruise with just two hours on Whitehaven Beach. Lovely afternoon tea with anti pasta, mud cake & fresh fruit. Highly recommend this tour

    Awesome afternoon out, great staff and service. There were all sorts of activities available like paddle boards at no extra cost. The afternoon tea was like a share platter style of salami, kabana, cheese, olives and a yummy choc cake.

    We had a wonderful afternoon on Whitehaven Beach. The crew were friendly and we enjoyed swimming and playing games on the beach. The only thing missing was lunch. We would have brought more with us if we'd known that there wouldn't be much on offer.

    It was a great day. The weather was kind and Whitehaven beach is amazing. The one complaint was that when we received our confirmation there was no information as to where to board the boat and the right time. We rang the local operators who gave us the right information.
