From our first inquiry to the last of the administration, the Whitsunday Escape crew were absolutely fantastic. They are very customer focused, helping us with a couple of tricky invoicing and timing things with no trouble at all. Every time we called to check on something, they were helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable about all aspects of the operation. When came the time to take “Lady L III” out, she was ready for us and we enjoyed the first night in the marina to get used to her. Tim’s briefing was outstanding – perfectly targeted to our knowledge and delivered in a great relaxed and friendly style (as was the debrief when we returned). Our holiday was sensational and whenever we had a question, Whitsunday Escape was there on the radio with a helpful answer. The boat was superb – she handled like a dream, she was well equipped with everything we needed, and she offered loads of space to spread out. We have already recommended Whitsunday Escape to some of our friends, and will certainly return to them in the future. Totally recommended from every perspective.
We had a wonderful trip and had the best time ever, I can’t wait for the next holiday with Whitsunday Escape. The vessel was very spacious, comfortable, it was very easy to sail and it is very stable.
