Made the decision to finish our trip with a sunset cruise, was so glad we did. We felt it was a week priced activity at $70 a head including drinks and nibblies. Staff were allot of fun and couldn't do enough. Thanks for a great night

This cruise is really stunning. The crew was nice, the views incredible, the food fresh and tasty (although basic but still good !), the boat was very clean. Watch out for vicious sun though, we thought we were protected but burnt feet + tops of heads ! We loved the snorkeling, there was as much to see here as with... More

Reviews all look great. My booking experience is a little scary. You complete the online form, you get an e mail 3 days later to confirm availability (no way of checking availability over a number of days) and then they ask you to complete and scan a credit card authorisation form. Is this how others did it. Is it safe?... More

We wanted to do a little snorkelling and to see Whitehaven beach, we liked the idea of Edge, as it was a sailing option and not a big massive boat full of people. When we arrived we were told the chance of getting to Whitehaven was only 20% due to weather. We were offered full rebook or full refund. As... More

We would like to thank Luke and his crew for making this a memorable day, they were helpful and friendly and very professional. The cocktail on the journey home topped off a great day that included White haven beach and snorkeling. Highly recommend this trip!!

We are a couple in our late 20s. We had a really great day on the Edge sail to the whiteheaven beach and snorkel near by. The crew were super friendly and casual, The groups were much smaller then Cruise Whitsundays which is much nicer. Plenty of space to sit down or you can relax on the front net bit,... More

Thoroughly recommend these guys. Our crew of Luke, Rhys, Holly and Tim (?) were efficient, good at their work, yet layed back enough to capture the holiday vibe. Food was very good given the "at sea" circumstances. The crew couldn't do enough to help. We did the Sail and Snorkel on 24 Oct and it was the best of both... More

We had a fantastic day on the boat, we were a group of 22 and loved sailing around and sun baking on the nets. We stopped at Chalkies Beach, it was beautiful and we all had a snorkel, supervised by the lovely crew members who looked after us and had an esky with ciders and wine waiting for us on... More

We had an amazing day cruising to Whitehaven beach & snorkelling at Chalkies beach. The crew on board Reggie, Holly & Reece were friendly & did an excellent job. Everything was extremely well organised. The sea was a bit rough at times & a few people felt a bit sick but the crew did everything they could to make them... More

Joined the sail and swim tour to Whitehaven beach which was one of the best highlights of our honeymoon trip! The sailing catamaran was spacious, well-maintained and relaxing , with friendly crew members. The sailing itself was already a pleasant experience which other cruise couldn't give. The 2 hours in the beach was never enough in such paradise though. We... More
