ZigZag Whitsundays Reviews On Google 

10/10 day couldn’t recommend highly enough! We saw, whales, turtles, the best beach in the world and some of the most amazing lookouts you could ever imagine! The crew were all amazing and super helpful!
This was our first time travelling the Whitsundays and ZigZag made the day trip such an enjoyable experience from the beginning. My partner and I both thought that the staff were friendly, the food was tasty, and we had enough time at each location to enjoy the views. The staff also spotted some whales and sea turtles for our tour group which made it a memorable day for both of us. They also provided ample of opportunities for photography through the use of their gropro. Would highly recommend this great tour company!

THE BEST TOUR!! Best boat, best crew, best snorkling and best beach ;). Thanks Ben, Angus and skipper Fiona! Saw whales, a great reef and a turtle. And the boat ride was just 100% fun.
Das war ein wunderschöner Tag ☺️ ich würde nur mit ZigZag buchen 🤙

Overall friendly and fun atmosphere and excellent boat riding skills. Unfortunately, I cannot give a better rating because of two reasons. The tour ended yesterday at 3.10pm, even though it is advertised as an 8h experience ending at 4-4.30pm. Because we saw this coming already on the islands, we kindly asked the crew whether we could make another stop on our way back or stay a bit longer at Whitehaven beach. The answer was a relatively rude „No“ without further explanation.The other reason is that on both walks the guide completely lacked knowledge about the area, even though it had been announced twice that such information would be shared on these walks. Pity!

We enjoyed our day out with ZigZag. Good tour, nice staff, beautiful snorkelling!The only thing we didn’t like was the music on board. We thought is was unnecessary and it gave the tour ‘party boat’ vibes.Other than that, good job. Thanks!

Amazing trip today with ZigZag - snorkelling at Chalkie’s Beach and then across to Whitehaven Beach for lunch and plenty of leisure time. Thanks so much Fiona, Angus, and Ben for sharing your knowledge and hospitality - you’re awesome!
Great day yesterday and great customer service and knowledge by the crew (Fi, Ben and Angus) me and my partner had an amazing day. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area! Makes it better it is a family run business with one boat, so you get the full experience. Make sure you book with zigzag

Friendly, helpful and fun crew (Fi, Angus and Ben). Toilet onboard boat and great local knowledge on snorkelling spots on the reef. Lovely to support an independent and family business. Go pro photos taken for you by crew. Highly recommend booking with ZigZag.

Amazing tour, amazing crew!!!! I had so much fun during the trip, Fi who was driving the boat made us had an amazing time we had a lot of fun with waves, I totally recomend sitting in front of the boat, its like a rollercoaster. Angus showed us where to snorkel, the most amazing coral I have ever seen. He was so nice and sweet with us. Whitesunday islands are beautiful, must see. And the hikings arrive to wonderful lookouts. A 10.

Incredible, a 10/10! So funny and really good organization!! We love it!! Thanks Angus and Fi.
We took a snorkel and Whitehaven beach day trip with ZigZag and it was great! We had a full boat but it didn't feel too crowded. The crew, Josiah, Angus and Casey were great! They took time to get to know the people on the tour and were really having fun. We spotted whales and saw a turtle while snorkeling. They were well set up and ran things professionally. Playing music while we cruised to each stop was a nice touch. The lunch was yummy with a few salads and sandwiches, there was plenty for everyone. Casey drove the boat very smoothly. Would recommend these guys if you are looking for a day trip!

Cannot fault our day out with Zigzag Whitsundays!!It was brilliant from start to finish.The crew were amazing, Angus,Ben and "Captain" Kacey were all so friendly,kind,helpful,funny and informative.We were taken to an amazing snorkeling spot and had a wonderful picnic lunch on Whitehaven Beach.Attention to details and the "little things" were second to none.There was even a bag of toys for any kids on board,spades,buckets,a ball etc for beach time!!I looked at a number of Whitsunday trips and chose this one as it had what I was looking for,a bit of snorkeling,a bit of hanging out on a beautiful beach,the opportunity to walk up to a couple of lookouts.This offered everything I wanted and all the positive reviews praising the staff and rating the day out were accurate and spot on.So glad I picked ZigZag and would choose them again and again!!Thankyou for the best day and happy memories that will last forever.Keep on doing what you're doing!!

Great day with a great crew Gus, Casey and Ben were great dun
This tour has simply been amazing! From communication beforehand, the pick up and supply of wetsuits + spray jackets, the music, the crew, … just everything!We had an fantastic day, the crew was so much fun, the snorkeling spot was beautiful with so much fish and even turtles! 😍🙌🏻The other spots were also beautiful, as well as all the well thought snacks + lunch (regards to the owners mum who does them all by herself! Delicious!).Would 100% do it again and again - if you ever need another deckhand, let me pls know!
Start to finish, this tour was stunning. The Port at Airlie is gorgeous, the coral reefs were breathtaking and the islands/beaches are some of the best in the world. The crew were lovely and helpful. The food was excellent and they actually do cater for dietary requirements (gf + df in my case). So much effort and attention to detail went in considering it's a family owned single-boat tour company. I personally chose this tour because wetsuits/snorkeling gear was included in the price, and I'm glad I did! Highly recommend.
What an amazing adventure! The crew was absolutely fantastic! They took pictures of us for free and even offered us a GoPro to use while snorkeling. They took the time to explain all the important details while on the boat and even brought us for a hike. And the homemade food was unbelievably delicious!

We had a great time!Probably one of the tours with the most competitive prices for what they offer and there are only 30 people on the boat maximum.The staff is very friendly and has a great taste in music that plays throughout the whole journey on the boat, great fun!

My boyfriend and I did a tour with zig zag which included snorkelling and going to Whitehaven beach. The team were very energetic and super friendly and fun. We throughly enjoyed the day.The highlight for me was getting to snorkel and if you’re lucky enough you’ll get to see turtles!!! The boat trip was sooo much fun I loved it. The boat goes super fast and music is blaring to match the crazy energy.Staff were more than accommodating to take pictures for us too and we were also provided with lunch which was delicious and well needed! We’re so grateful for such a fun filled day. I’ll never forget this experience ever! Would highly recommend!! Thank you so much!Hannah and Shane.
While the trip was good, with a friendly team that helped make our experience enjoyable despite the less-than-ideal weather conditions, I must express disappointment with the lunch buffet. It was advertised as satisfying, but it left me hungry as I couldn't get seconds, and the food wasn't tasty. Moreover, I noticed other tours at the same spot offering much more generous lunches. Additionally, the equipment provided was not in the best condition, and they didn't have our sizes available for wetsuits.

We have done several reef tours from Airlie and this one exceeded them all. Great crew, food and snorkelling spot. Would not go with anyone else as they went above and beyond to make it a great day. It felt like it was a private tour as they knew everyone by name. 100% percent the only tour to go on.
Had a great time, Captain Fiona made the trip out to the reef and back a blast, even my wife loved it and she doesn’t like boats, the crew Jesire and Angus were champions, very accommodating and welcoming, felt like old mates. Will do it again when we return.
