    A few words from some of our happy customers

    Unforgettable Holiday!


    We reviewed a number of operators in the Whitsundays and from start to finish, the team’s help from Whitsunday Escape was exceptional. They navigated us through the different options of boats, were flexible to our needs on starting the journey, provided a comprehensive briefing and also gave us some great tips on where to go – we will use them for our next trip.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Whitsunday Escape.

    The time we spent with family and friends was unforgettable. It was wonderful to explore a stunning part of the world with amazing people, away from modern distractions. It couldn’t have been a better holiday!
