"Amazing trip!" by Kristyna Kirchova
Apollo experience is the best for withsundays. Did the 3 days boat tour and was excellent! Captain and the best crew possible. Food was amazing, quality and quantity. The boat is super comfortable and the places they take you are unbelievable. Best snorkelling spot I have been to in Australia I would 100% recoment this to everybody.
"Excellent value! Memorable experience" by Patricia Saiz
Airlie Beach Online is an amazing company, and her manager Cathy is the most thoughtful and helpful tour operator we have met in the entire Queensland. From the very beginnning she provided us with a range of the most suitable options of boat tours according to our needs, including itineraries, prices and times. She tried to dig into our priorities, which in my case was scuba diving and to be in the ocean for as long as possible. So the most suitable as well as affordable tour for us as backpackers was Apollo so we chose it without hesitation. Due to weather conditions, the tour was cancelled for the weekend we arrived in Airlie, and instead of pushing us to book another tour for those days, Cathy was completely honest about the conditions and she advised us to wait one extra week so we could fully enjoy the experience and not rush it with the strong winds. Honestly, best thing we could've done, the wait was worth it and Apollo was a dream come true. The sailing tour exceeded our expectations, we had fantastic 3 days in the ocean, visited many bays, the astonishing Whitehaven and did a bunch of scuba diving and snorkelling. We are really happy about our choice, and we thank Cathy for her help, her kindness, her passion about fulfilling the customer needs and her honesty. No doubt we will keep recommending to book with her company this specific 3days/2nights tour to have an unforgettable experience in the Whitsundays.
