We are a family of four adults (including 18 & 20 yr old daughters) staying at Hamilton Island April 20 til 26. Our Travel agent has advised us to book these tours early at home due to it being both NZ and some Aus school holidays. Is this necessary? Do they get booked out? We would rather book the day after we arrive so we can check out the weather forecast.
Also advice on the tours. Looking at full day reef - either H20Sportz $195 or Cruise Whitsunday $210. The first goes to Bait Reef - Is that far enough out? The Cruise Whitsunday I see has a pontoon - is that better? Prices aren't much different. Also looking at a full day Whitehaven Beach tour - Cruise Indigo $150 or Hamilton Island $165. Both look similar - lunch provided, snorkel gear provided etc. Again price similar. Anyone have any pro's or con's on any of these tours? Thanks very much
