Fraser and the team at OzSail ensured we had the most amazing trip possible from start to finish. The vessel, people, experiences and food were all simply incredible, my partner and I would definitely do it all again.

The trip around the Whitsundays island was amazing. I got give the chance to pilot the sailing boat which was so cool. I loved the diving experience I got to see some amazing coral, huge clams and fish/turtles. The crew where great and very friendly to talk to.

Worth it!!$
Sep 2021 • Family
Whitehaven for more than 4 hours, saw sting rays and shark in the water. Waking up on the boat the crew were amazing, Julie was the most amazing person making everyone feel at home, Ct Neil was a fabulous yachts man and Cameron climbed the rigging like a pro!! The boat requires agility to move around and in /off boat

Spank me not Matadore!
Aug 2021 • Couples
SPANK ME was used instead of Matadore. We enjoyed the snorkling and Whitehaven beach. The tender needed a ladder for swimmers. Not sufficient care was taken with basic hygiene. Toilets were faulty. The skipper was knowledgeable.

Hi Linda, Thanks for your feedback, we are always looking to improve our service and require honest feedback to do so. We are sorry to hear you you felt this way about your trip on SpankMe. Unfortunately, some of our procedures may not have been followed as per normal normal circumstances due to the highly stressful situation of removing an ill patient from the vessel via medevac. We are certainly supporting our crew through this stressful time and now that our crew have had some time to reflect events of the trip, we will certainly be taking this feedback into accounts. All crew that commence work with our company are required to undergo training and complete hygiene course. Again, thank you for bring this concern to our attention, we have now set a date for all crew to complete a refresher hygiene course. We are currently in the process of rectifying the issues with the vessel toilets and considering the possibility on tender ladders. Thank you again for your feedback. Thanks, Matador Team

Great service; 2 days, 1 night was a perfect duration
Jul 2021
I booked a 2 night, 1 day tour on Matador. As Matador was out of action, the boat used instead was Avatar. Was an excellent trip with great service. A special shout out to Jenna crewing her first voyage - well done!
Highlights included the stingrays at Whitehaven Beach, snorkelling the reef and sleeping on board the yacht.

Great day under sail
Jul 2021 • Family
Efficient sail with friendly staff. We were a smaller (10) group so we sailed in a smaller boat but that was not a problem. They provided us with various snorkeling sites which made it more interesting. OK lunch. The only thing I would suggest is providing more comfortable seating eg cushions and back rests. Waterproof are easily available and would make the full day more pleasant. Overall I would highly recommend this sail.

Best Whitsundays sailing experience
We can’t recommend this trip enough. Outstanding crew who looked after everything we needed and made the trip accessible for everyone regardless of prior snorkeling and swimming experience/confidence, to make sure no one missed out on the spectacular snorkeling and reef.
The food was amazing.
We would definitely choose this trip again and would recommend this trip to everyone- including people who are prone to seasickness.
The boat was spacious and comfortable for the size of the group.

Had a really nice, relaxed trip with Matador. The crew were friendly and catered to needs of all the guests. The food was tasty and there was plenty of it. I especially enjoyed the Snorkeling spots they brought us to!
