    Had an awesome time with an awesome crew whilst seeing and experiencing the Whitsundays. Kane and Jayden were super fun and created a great all round experience for my first ever Whitsundays trip! Jayden also should consider becoming a chef after his tasty meals.

    As Ride to Paradise is one of the only options to experience the Whitsunday Islands without having to stay on a boat, we were really looking forward to experiencing the luxury resort as well as the islands. The Redcat boat crew, Shane & Coco, were amazing; Really friendly,

    Hi Hannah G, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent tour Ride to Paradise. We are so pleased to hear that you loved your time out on the boat zooming around the beautiful Whitsundays exploring the beautiful destinations we provide such as Whitehaven Beach, Hill inlet look out and our snoreklling locations and you were impressed with our amazing staff members Shane and Coco. The tides in the Whitsunday Islands change daily and range from 0.01m above low water mark right up to 4m plus, some days the tide will only move 30cm or so and some days it is quite large in its movement, tides are a result of the lunar cycle, so they change a lot more than just in ‘summer’ or ‘winter’. It looks like on your particular trip they were low at the times you spent ashore, the activities are still able to be used, you just need to walk the 50m across the tide flat to the deeper water (minimum 3m deep). Thank you for providing us with your honest feedback, we are a rapidly fast family runned business. All kind of feedback we are greatly appreciated. Ill make sure the staff are informing guests of this, our resort staff could help carry out the paddle boards when it is low tide. I have spoken to the resort manager and the housekeeping staff in question have been replaced, resort staff are a transient type, coming and going regularly. I have asked the tour guides to keep an eye out for any similar behavior and report back immediately. The tour guides have been spoken to about when is best to do the information talks to avoid food getting cold, I am sorry, this is the first time this has happened. The ‘Ride to Paradise’ deal is actually exceptional value in the package compared to booking your accommodation, day trips and then paying for food separately. Please let us know if you come back to the Whitsundays because our single Day Trip ‘Thundercat’ may be more to your liking! It is a great day out. Thank you once again for providing us with your honest feedback, we appropriate it so we can improve on areas so we can provide the best possible service. Thank you for choosing Red Cat Adventures and we hope to see you again!
