Captain Kev is a legend!

I love Captain Kev and his tour! Every single thing about it is amazing. Captain and his crew is so friendly and real deal. The spots he has taken us were just gorgeous. Food was plenty and delicious. Very comfortable to sleep in the boat. All he wants is to make sure everybody is enjoying the experience. After tour he organises a dinner with discount and free beers in a nice pub under his name. He is an awesome guy and the tour is unbelieveble!

Kevs outdone himself!

An authentic trip. You won’t be greeted by any false promises at the door and the trip will exceed your expectations. Several hours on whitehaven beach before the tours arrive, great snorkeling spots and an amazing aussie burger all rolled into one event!

DONT TRUST BAD COMMENTS

Usually we never leave a comment if it a good exp, wich was it. But after seeing all the bad review on this trip we feel like we had to respond to thoses. We almost took another compagny after reading all the bad reviews but finally decided to book with some apprehension. We really dont underdtand those comment the captain is a great man, really funny and real. I think that people who leave those comment expect a 5 star yacht with waiter serving champagne or something aha Great time with freight train, good food (lot to eat), good snorkel sites and way cheaper than the others compagnys go check it out !
