Had an awesome day at Whitehaven each. Staff were fantastic... interacting with my grandson. Playing volleyball, feeding the fish. Also the treasure hunt. I had a blissful massage on the beach. Would highly recommend this cruise.

The service was good on the tour from Cruise Whitsundays. However, I do find that it was expensive for what it was. We only hung out at Whitehaven beach and unfortunately the weather wasn't great. I only took this tour to not lose my day.

Unforgettable experience! Will do it again and again. Really had fun in the beach. Nice boat experience and a filling afternoon tea.
