couldn't have asked for a better trip! The crew was awesome and gave us lots of information about the places we went to and what the schedule was. We got up early to be at Whitehaven Beach before all the other tourists and got nice pictures. The food is super delicious and there is loads. The atmosphere on the boat is very relaxed and in the evening it's fine to sit around and have some drinks. The snorkeling was great too and we saw some big fish and a turtle! Thanks a lot to the crew for the great trip!

We had an absolutely incredible trip, we were on a beautiful Catamaran boat. The three crew were great, they cooked all of our meals and we were NEVER hungry, so much food! Tim was great, walked us up to the lookout over Whitehaven beach and boated us around to all of our snorkel locations. We were the first at every spot and the last to leave. We had Whitehaven to ourselves for the first part of the morning! Same with the snorkel locations, first there and last to leave. The sunsets were incredible and everyone was so friendly and nice on the boat, it can be as chill or as party as you make it. Only thing I would recommend is to take LOTS of sunscreen and a hat as there isn't much shade on the boat and the Sun is Strong! Also if you have your own snorkel then take it as the ones on the boat are pretty average...but good enough :) This was the best thing we did on our roadtrip of East Australia, would 100% recommend! THANKS SO MUCH! xx

As I'd never been in a kayak before, I was unsure of this experience... but so pleased we gave it a go. The operator was friendly, polite, & very informative. Definitely kayak around to the bay, as this is where we saw the most turtles. Actually saw more turtles here, than we did during our whole 2wk stay in Airlie Beach. If you're keen to see turtles, then this is the place. Maybe we were lucky on this particular day, as there's no guarantees....but definitely worth a try, given it was a cheap couple of hours!

After arriving in Airlie beach during a potential cyclone we weren’t very sure if we could do anything enjoyable. Then we found the kayaking and paddle boarding experience. The clouds parted and the sun came shining out. We paid for four hours in the end and really got to know the wildlife, turtle bay and islands. The Greek goddess instructor was absolutely wonderfully helpful and fun to talk with and helped my partner to feel one with the waves. We will definitely be coming back to find more. We saw a manatee, fish and lots of turtles. It was pretty windy but for two people who aren’t in the best of fittness (as we now realise) it was really enjoyable and worth it (no pain, no gain) thank you very much! We will be back xoxox

You have to see it for yourself! Thanks so much to our hosts Mark & Alex for keeping us safe, feeding us an abundance of delicious fresh food & guiding us to the most remote & deserted places to see the beauty of the reef. Captain Mark Smith has an incredible story having survived 11 days lost at sea & I felt completely at ease throughout the entire experience. Make sure you check out his book & follow his new world record bid - @GlobalOceanChallenge So many amazing things to see & capture on camera. Captain Mark saved Eddie the white bellied sea eagle from drowning and he escorts the Matador through the passage between Hook & Whitsunday Island every trip in & out - simply incredible to witness the bond they have. I can't even begin to tell you of the myriad of colours of the fish and coral we saw, their local knowledge is priceless & for the price you pay it is worth so much more. View more photos on Instagram @rellishlife ?? So proud to have chosen Matador Whitsundays, a portion of my ticket sale goes to support Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Queensland Parks & Wildlife & Ecotourism Australia. All very worthy as they protect our country's greatest assets - the environment!

What an amazing 2 days on the Matador with an amazing fun crew! The weather forecast was definitely not on our side for this trip. The first reef was ok - lots of fish but the reef itself has had suffered lots of damage from different cyclones. The second stop was amazing. Tons of beautiful fish, and we've got to meet Big George and Boy George. The rest of our monday was enjoyed in very wet rainy weather with lots of hot coffee. Dinner was served at our overnight stop and we even saw a shark! Day 2 started early and off we went to Whitehaven. 3 h was enough time for tons of selfies, exploring the area, going for a swim and enjoying this always changing beach! Go! 5☆!

I've been on a fair few cruises in Australia, and this is without a doubt the best one I've experienced so far! What appealed to me was the non-commercial feel, run by 3 awesome Aussie guys that really have a passion and joy doing what they are doing. We we're around 20-25 pax on the boat, all in their 20-30s (no family's or kids yay) which connected quick and became a big family and had great fun exploring Whitsundays together! BYO is great :)

This trip was absolutely amazing. The crew on the Matador had a great chemistry and made sure everyone on board had a great time. Kyle the captain planned the trip to fit our needs and made sure that everyone saw what they wanted to see! We saw so many whales jumping out of the water, we swam with seaturtles and manta rays, we saw the Reef and exotic fish a'plenty. Heith the cook was apparently an eagle whisperer and made quite a show throwing meat in the air to them! (Also he cooked delicious meals for everyone on board). I can't recommend Matador and it's crew enough. Thank you so much for this incredible trip that I will never forget

Truly fantastic was to see the Whitsundays. Amazing value too with meals included. Our crew Andrew, Hakeem and Skipper Mark were super helpful and informative. I did this in April 18 and just again December 19 as i was doing a east coast trip with a German friend and couldnt think of any better way for her to experiance the amazing beaches, abundant sealife and breathtaking sunsets and sunrises this region has to offer. We saw loads of fish and a turtle in the snorkle areas. On the whitehaven beach we saw more fish, lemon sharks (completely harmless) and rays. Cant recommend it high enough. (Looks like my pics loaded upside down, but you get the idea)

If it was only for the crew and their plans I'd instantly give 5 stars! They cared for us and planned our trip according to tide and tourism (which means we had White Heaven Beach nearly to our-selves) The sailing and all the information about marine life and sailing it-self were great. Also the food was simple but really good. Only reason there's just 4 stars is my subjective feeling that 2 snorkling spots plus a 2.5 hour visit at White Heaven Beach are a little too less for the money you pay. But maybe that's just me. (If the water had been warmer foer the better snorkling experience, the whole trip would have been 5 starsprobably.)

La migliore esperienza fatta in tutta la settimana di vacanza. É stato magnifico. I ragazzi e il capitano sono fantastici. Abbiamo mangiato molto bene.. Ci siamo abbronzati stesi sulla barca.. Abbiamo fatto snorkeling.. Visto tartarughe e aquile. Ci siamo divertiti un sacco. Devo dire che la compagnia di persone con cui farai il viaggio conta molto...ma è impossibile non essere soddisfatto. Lo rifarei altre mille volte. Grazie Sammy Matty e the boss..

We rang up Matador as we couldn't believe the cheap price on Bookme! Absolutely well worth the money. We had 2 really good days abroad Matador, the crew (Fabien, Craig and Cal) were all great and the experience was fantastic. Would do it all again and have already recommended people to go on the trip! Do it!

My tour was cancelled because there weren't enough people - so they upgraded me to a 2night tour! It was a perfect trip, the food was awesome and we had many opportunities to go snorkeling or swimming. You could see the damage of the Cyclone - but Whitehaven Beach and everything is still amazing! So don't worry about that. The sailing was a lot of fun and the rest of the day you could relax in hammocks!
