With only 24 people it’s one of the friendliest and most social boats on the Whitsundays. From checking in, to anchoring up. Each step of the way is carefully thought out to give you the best experience possible. The crew are sure to help you see the best Whitsundays has to offer.
You’ll tick off all the Whitsunday ‘must dos’ – including chilling on the white sands of Whitehaven Beach and hiking up to Hill Inlet lookout for those iconic views over the bay.
En route you’ll also have plenty of time to explore the underwater world – snorkelling at spots such as Mantaray Bay, Blue Pearl Bay and Langford sandbar where you can check out the beautiful coral gardens and maybe even find Nemo!
The crew at Red Cat Adventures are an all round bunch of legends. From checking in, to anchoring up. Each step of the way is carefully thought out to give you the best experience possible.
Remember, this boat is a really stable catamaran with tons of deck space. It’s not gonna be an exhilarating fast boat so it’s perfect for those wanting to take it real easy and enjoy the ride.
It’s BYO too so make sure you pack a few cold ones for the trip to enjoy along with the daily sunsets.
Top reviews. Top crew. Top notch all-rounder.
Excellent trip, would highly recommend! There was a lovely selection of food throughout the day, many activities and beautiful scenery. Sleeping on the deck of the boat was great as you could see all the stars, including shooting ones! And best of all Travis and Rhan were amazing crew members!
