English Language Comprehension
Because many of the tours we offer are low guest numbers with sometimes only 2 crew, it is very important that the guests have basic English understanding.

If customers cannot understand English, it is important that a companion travelling can speak english and translate for the non english speaking guest.

If it is raining, our tours still operate, as the guests can still experience the Whitsundays, including swimming and bush walking. If the winds are light, the tours will still run, however, it will be necessary to use the motors on the boats to get to the stops around the islands. We do not provide any guarantee that the winds will be consistent and from the correct direction to make sailing always possible.
