A fabulous day out! Highly recommended for all ages!

We were collected from our hotel and taken to the harbour where we were met by the most friendly crew. During the sail we were informed about the history of the Derwent Hunter and Whitsunday Islands which was fascinating. The snorkelling was amazing and sights just breath taking! I want to go again!
