We spent my 40th Birthday on board the Red Cat Adventure boat with Rosie and PK, what a great experience we had. They kept our group spirts up the whole day with their fun energy and great team work was outstanding. I forgot my wetsuit and PK let me borrow his.... thanks PK. When we walked away from the boat my daughter said I will never forget PK that was the best experience with his upbeat personality. We will be back!

This was hands down the best tour I've ever been on. Anthony, our host was amazing. So full of great knowledge and lots of fun as well. Whitehaven Beach was incredible. Everywhere you looked was picture perfect. The water was crystal clear and beautiful to swim in. The snorkling experience was outstanding. I never expected to witness the sea life which we saw. It was mind blowing. The size of the fish, well they were enormous and spectacular. The coral was so diverse and colourful. The crew made us feel safe and secure and were always keeping a watchful eye on everyone's safety. Lastly the food we received was fresh and delicious with a bonus skewer of fresh fruit on the way back to shore. If you choose to go on this tour, you will not regret it.
