An experience that will be cherished. Thank you to Dave & KP for your friendliness, hospitality and professionalism. Scenery - spectacular. Swimming & snorkelling spots - gorgeous. Dave & KP balanced conversation and interesting information beautifully. Not to mention fruit and seafood platters were scrumptious. Everything on cue - even hot face towels after fresh cold water shower! Such a treat all up!!! Highly recommend!

We booked the boat for a half day charter at relatively short notice (about a week before). Jake and Amelia were not available but quickly found us another crew - Dave and KP. We wanted to go to Whitehaven Beach and also do some snorkelling. We had a teenage daughter with us who was a bit fearful of swimming with fish. We had a wonderful day. Snorkelling at Manta Ray Bay was great. Our daughter says the snorkelling was the highlight and seems to have overcome her fish-phobia. Dave and KP were very helpful and accomodating. Would definitely go again. Many thanks to Whitsundays Private Charters for a great day.

Thoroughly impressed by the skipper’s knowledge ensuring we travelled to the best spots in the Whitsundays - taking in consideration of what we wanted to do. The crew went above and beyond at all times to ensure everyone on the boat was having the best day, making it a memorable day we will not forget. Highly recommend Whitsundays Private Charter and can’t wait to go out on it again!! Thank you

One week ago today, we had one of the best family experiences ever. After not being able to find anywhere to book my daughter into for snorkelling during our week long stay in Airlee - we found an opening with WPC and so glad we did. We are still raving about it to friends - the whole experience from start to finish was perfect. Jake & Amelia are so welcoming and attentive while ensuring we stay relaxed throughout the whole day. Taking us to some of the best snorkelling locations around the Whitsundays and topping it all off with the most amazing seafood platter served up for lunch.Some added bonuses to point out, the immaculate, comfortable and super fast boat, high quality snorkelling gear and stinger suits, the sea scooters (these are the bomb!) and last but not least the discreet below deck toilet that came in very handy after a few glasses of champagne! All in all well above a 5 Star experience. We will be back!!

We were originally booked on a group tour which got cancelled at the last minute. Jake went out of his way to help us out on Christmas eve.It was an awesome experience, we snorkelled near Hook and Hayman islands, getting up close and personal with Bat fish and Wrasse.The trip was well catered for with a nice lunch and as many drinks as we needed. Jake also supplied snorkelling equipment and stinger suits.The boat was amazing, really luxurious and fast.Fantastic family experience, the kids said it was the highlight of our whole 6 week holiday.

What an incredible sunset cruise we had! I was anxious of the windy weather but Captain Jake assured me that our cruise would still go ahead and he managed to find a sheltered spot for us to enjoy our catered antipasto platter. Deckhand Amelia ensured that the drinks were flowing and played our favourite songs. Oli was a superb photographer and took pictures on our phones. We all had such a wonderful time on board. We can't wait for the next trip! 100% recommend to everyone.

After our wedding my new wife and I booked a full day with Whitsundays private charters around the islands and Whitehaven beach. I cannot praise the captain and crew enough, the service was above and beyond and the experience from start to finish was 5 star.From the moment of arrival, we were treated to a champagne reception, and the ship had rose petal decorations (a small touch that we loved). Jake took us around the Whitsundays and was more than happy to take us to the destinations of our choice as well as showing us some of the hidden gems of the islands.The ship itself is luxurious. It was a comfort to travel on and we were able to move between the islands quickly barely feeling the waves. I have been on a number of charters and island cruises before and Whitsundays private charters is by far the best experience I have had on a charter because of the luxury of the ship and the personised service from the crew.If you are in Airlie Beach, I can’t recommend Whitsundays private charters enough.

We had an absolutely magical day with Jake and Amelia from Whitsundays Private Charters. We recently were on the Carnival Splendor when we were unable to get tickets for the shore activities arranged through the cruise liner we luckily found Jake. We are truly grateful we did as we had a personlised tour for our group of 8, we had the opportunity to snorkel with an array of amazing fish, saw some magnificent coral, and even swam with turtles. We were lucky enough to get a swim at Whitehaven whilst enjoying a cold beverage of our choice. Jake and Amelia went out their way to ensure that we had the best day ever! We can't wait to be back! If you are in Airlie Beach and looking for an unforgettable day around the islands then call Jake and Amelia.

Incredible! Thanks Jake and Amelia for the most amazing day trips to the outer reef and Whitehaven Beach! Our group of 6 enjoyed every minute of our adventures and can’t wait to book another day charter in the near future.The Boat was ultra modern, with a bbq, toilet, day bed and Tanning beds- It also has a great dinning table for 7- where we enjoyed a lovely meal and champagne.Snorkelling was a breeze with the underwater scooters, stinger suits and go-pro- all provided by the lovely crew.We were treated to some incredible secret spots- the very best of the Whitsundays- and the photos Jake (crew) took on the drone are insane!Thanks guys for a wonderful experience, we wish you every success and can’t wait to see you again for our next holiday in Airlie!

We had an absolutely fantastic day out on the water with Whitsundays Private Charters on the Seaclusion, yesterday. Jake (the captain) and his deckhand were amazing. They frequently checked in on us to make sure we were comfortable. The boat itself is epic!! That thing can move and is pure luxury. Super comfortable. We saw turtles and whales, and swam with some beautiful big fish! A magical day that we will always remember. Thanks Jake 🤙🏻

What an absolutely magical day out with Whitsundays Private Charters! Jake and Amelia were such lovely people and made sure that our day was nothing short of amazing. We saw whales, dolphins, even a turtle and snorkeled in a secluded spot with so many beautiful friendly fish! Would highly recommend a day out with these guys, we will definitely be back!
