The Whitsundays have some of the most breathtaking sceneries in the world, both under and above the water. It is hard for a tour to add value to that. Not for Thunder Cat though, especially Reece and Dave (I'm sorry if I remember this incorrectly), who made sure that, on top of being blown away, everyone had fun, could safely make the most out of their day and that all questions and curiosities would be addressed. They were not only experts, but they had a passion that was successfully transmitted to us. Cherry on the cake, they were also very funny. Our guides were also very caring. One older person had limited mobility and could not walk to Whitehaven beach through the path, so they took them on a boat tour to still let them enjoy the stunning view. Whitehaven beach is a must see, and you can dance with stingrays (full on Moana's nonna experience). I believe that the two snorkeling activities change, but I'm sure they will make sure to provide the best. We went to a reef with a crazy amount of fish of many different types, and later to one that was more diverse in terms of corals. If you are around for a limited time, this is definitely a tour that you cannot miss! I also took a day trip to the outer reef (also an experience not to miss if you have time), but comparatively this was better!
