    Absolutely loved Whitehaven Beach and snorkelling at Chalkies was incredible. We could not believe how many different types of fish we saw and the coral was stunning. The crew were wonderful. Take travel calm before you go just in case there is a swell. The whole experience was memorable and would definitely go again.

    All staff very proficient, helpful and friendly. It’s a unique experience on the catamaran though not much shade. The reef snorkelling was a little disappointing with not many fish or variety of coral and visibility not the best. However we did see a turtle which was exciting. The food options compared to previous options were very basic but fresh and tasty.

    Absolutely loved this tour! We were lucky to get 1.5 hours snorkelling and with beautiful weather we saw so many different kinds of fish and even a turtle! The tour guides are lovely and everything was relaxed. Whitehaven beach is also a must see which is part of the day’s activities. Highly recommend!
