Red Cat Adventures: All prices are per person in AUD and include GST, National Park and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park entry fees, professional skipper and host, live aboard, all meals, fresh linen and use of snorkelling equipment and snorkel suits. Cancellations made less than 24 hours before departure (Thundercat) or less than three weeks before departure (Ride to Paradise and Tongarra) will result in complete forfeiture of the full price. We reserve the right to substitute vessels without notice at any time for any reason. Clients should note that adventure travel involves risk. Whilst we make every effort to safeguard guests, we cannot be responsible for any damage, personal injury or loss due to the actions of passengers that are beyond our control. All cruises are subject to weather and the vessel operator’s discretion. Please allow extra time to travel during the wet season (Dec-May) as we occasionally have road closures due to flooding. At certain times of the year, ‘dangerous’ jellyfish inhabit these waters and passengers should take care for their own safety. Passengers entering the water do so at their own risk and the owner of the vessel will not be liable for any personal injury, illness, death or any other consequences whatsoever of passengers being stung by jellyfish. To minimise this risk, you will be provided with a full-length protective ‘Snorkel Suit’ to wear whilst swimming and snorkelling during the cruise. Accordingly, Red Cat Adventures shall not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever which is suffered (including but not limited to indirect or consequential loss) or for any injury to person or property which is suffered or sustained by any passenger as a result of participating in any of its sailing adventures, except for any liability which cannot be excluded by law.
Thundercat: Cancellations within 24 hours of departure will forfeit the full cost of the trip.
This trip is an all-rounder so as long as you’re into world class beaches, immaculate snorkeling, and a guided hike through a national park then look no further than this.
Offering max time on the islands, the lively legends that captain the boat will get you to all the right places quicker than any other. Hill inlet lookout & Whitehaven beach are just the tip of the iceberg.
You’ll be blown away by the speed and stability of this custom built vessel so you can forget about getting seasick.
Whether you’re a family, a bunch of mates or just cruising solo it’s all good in the hood.
Red Cat Adventures (the guys behind this tour) have got everything covered. Lunch,
Marine Park fees, snorkelling equipment & stinger suits are all included in the cost. There’s even an onboard toilet so whilst this day is full of surprises, getting caught with your pants down isn’t one of them.
It’s all good, baby baby.
Very professional felt very safe during the snorkel. Had a great time on the day tour all the staff were very friendly. Highly recommend them!!
