Wonderful day out if you like sailing, snorkelling and socialising. Going to the reef under sail no throbbing engines was great. Crew were very friendly and knowledgeable and keen on safety. Facilities on board are very limited but no-one cared. Coffee, drinks, lunch, fruit was provided at different times. The two reef swims were excellent - could have stayed longer.

It was my first sailing cruise and I enjoyed my time on the Derwent Hunter. The crew was very nice and it was fun to help setting the sail. The food was delicious! I've seen better places for snorkelling, didn't get to see too many kinds of fishes, however, I still had a lovely day and I would recommend the tour to my friends and family.

This was a beautiful trip. The crew was so nice and very knowledgeable. The sailing was more fun for us than the snorkeling, as the sea life was not as abundant as we had hoped for the Whitsundays. Food was also good. Thanks for a wonderful time!

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!
