Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Fun, fast cruise around the Whitsunday Islands. All in one day visit world famous Whithaven Beach, then it's off to a pristine snorkelling reef off of another island, a delicious picnic lunch served right on the beach, afternoon snacks, entertaining and educational crew commentary throughout the day. Fun from start to finish!

Great adventure yesterday. We were well entertained. The weather was horrible and seas were rough but they can't control that.

We had a fantastic day right from start with our pick up driver Rick.Ten out of ten also for skipper Matt and Shane who were most impressive with their duties,nothing was too much trouble and they delivered more than the brochure.Big Fury was great with varying sea conditions and there was lots of laughter.Whitehaven was magnificent as was the lunch provided,afternoon tea was also generous.This is one experience we would repeat on our next visit to Airlie Beach.

We had excellent weather, a fast & fun ride out to Whitehaven Beach, Brayden & Chris prepared a great lunch for us then we had a swim and went on a bush walk. The snorkelling at Border Island was amazing, I felt like I was swimming in an aquarium. Brayden was an excellent & extremely informative guide as well as a great photographer for everyone. Great value money as well.

Booked this trip because of all the positive reviews. Super glad I did. I was at the wrong spot for the pick-up (entirely my fault) but Matt was so kind as to wait/come look for me. Didn't think that would happen what with there being so many others that booked the trip. Good reception at the marina and a great boat ride (I tend to get seasick sometimes, but on the Fury it was all good). Prepare to laugh at all the silly jokes that are being made by the crew :)

Unfortunately there wasn't very good visibility when snorkeling, but I actually didn't even mind. Lunch was great, the atmosphere even better and Whitehaven Beach was amazing (despite some clouds). Book this trip, guys!

We had a fantastic day out on Big Fury. Part of the service was being picked up and dropped off at our caravan park. The staff were excellent (especially our main guide, Lachie) and we spent the day snorkelling and enjoying Whitehaven Beach. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and Lachie looked after our 6 year old whilst we went snorkelling, by taking him out in the tender and showing him coral through the glass bottom viewer.

The buffet lunch was excellent in terms of both quantity and quality of food. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Big Fury visits the southern end of Whitehaven Beach, and doesn't do the lookout / shifting sands end - but this is made fairly clear and in no way detracts from what is an excellent day out.
