“We private chartered Bullet to celebrate a wedding with the family and could not be happier with our choice. The crew were amazing and the experience spectacular. Thanks Explore and the crew Damo, Chase and Reece who ensured our wedding guests experienced the best of what the Whitsundays has to offer... Memories created that will never be forgotten.”

"I highly recommend this. We did a private charter for 8 people and it was worth paying the extra money. Mick and Goldy (Elena) pampered us from the moment we got on the boat until we stepped on land 2 days later. The stars at night were the most amazing thing I've ever seen, Whitehaven Beach was very beautiful and relaxing, and the snorkeling locations were the best I've ever been to! Goldy fed us well and Mick made sure that our ride was comfortable and that he got us to land safely. We got to watch giant trevally fish eating smaller fish with the help of the blue light at the back of the boat. That was so much fun!! We also saw turtles! I would do it all over again. Thanks Mick and Goldy for a very enjoyable and memorable adventure. Tim, Christie, Bob, Julie, Ryan, Steph, Doug & Stacey"

"We had a great time on on the Whitsunday Adventure with 12 friends. The two staff were terrific and they provided plenty of food. The catamaran was very clean and sleeping quarters were pretty comfortable. Because it was a private charter we were allowed to party and really make it our own space. The staff said it is never usually a party boat, but they trusted us to behave ourselves and since it was a private charter they didn't have to worry about us disturbing other passengers. The little paddle boat with the glass bottom was an extra bonus on the reef. We'll be recommending it to our friends."
