Amazing day

The day trip on the whale tale Schooner was such a good experience! The destination - ‘Schooner island’ was a small pristine island where a hearty lunch was served. A snorkelling guide took anyone interested several hundred metres off shore where the tropical fish were abundant and equipped with bread thrown to us by one of the crew in a dingy we were able to feed many of the fish by hand. On the other side of the island a large school of baby black tipped reef sharks congregated in the shallows and observed very close up from the shore. For those not wanting to swim or snorkel a tin boat with a partial glass bottom was available to thanks in the sights below. My only criticism would be serving of coke flavoured cordial from out of coke labelled bottles , although most others favoured the beer which certainly appeared genuine. A great trip- Well worth the money and in my opinion better than other comparative tours I have done before

The best boat tour! Thank you

Amazing day! Drinks are included from the second you step on the boat. Lovely champagne breakfast! Tentative staff who are happy to talk to you and sing songs! My only feedback is that the snorkel guide was touching/standing on the coral. This kills the coral and all people snorkeling should be briefed beforehand not to touch the coral Thank you for an awesome day!

What a wonderful experience

I am rating this a 5 because the crew was a 10! The boat on a rainy day for those who don't like tight quarters might be less than ideal (as our trip started out) but when the rain stops there are so many places to go out on the various decks and open spaces and enjoy the views. The crew was absolutely amazing! They made sure everyone that wanted to "get their drink on" was obliged. It happened to be my birthday that day and a couples anniversary and they made cakes for each of us and sang the respective songs. Totally awesome! When we got to the island they made sure everyone knew the rules on the tide and explained when everything would be happening. I thought lunch was great! Every food group was covered nicely. I'm not sure I thought it was necessary to go way out snorkeling when the best was actually 15ft from shore. The guide did show a sea slug and another guide found a giant clam but that was done off of the glass bottom boat. All in all this was a wonderful day spent!!!
