• Explore both the North and the South end of Whitehaven Beach, visit Hill Inlet & South Whitehaven Lookout and

Whitsundays Private Charter Reviews

 Danielle, Trip Advisor,

“I recently went on Prosail’s outer reef tour on one of their maxi yacht’s Condor. The trip felt more like an experience rather
than a tour due to the crew being so personal, knowledgeable and passionate at what they do.”
January 2021

Danni F, Trip Advisor, December 2020

“For me, this was a return trip to the Whitsundays as I wanted to show my husband some places that are dear to my heart.
I have previously sailed with other operators. This time I chose Prosail and the 4 day/3 night Condor trip because I wanted
to be on the water for as long as possible and their itinerary is jam-packed full of the best parts of the islands. I also thought
the outer reef day they offer was a huge bonus as this is an expensive day trip to do on its own…the trip itself was everything
I hoped for and more. I can’t describe the level of contentment and joy I felt being able to reconnect with nature and the
ocean. The crew were so amazing; super friendly, knowledgeable, laid back and approachable, with an obvious passion for
their jobs and an undisguised love of the Whitsundays.”

Oren, TripAdvisor, January 2021

“…Condor was one of the best experiences of my life! The boat felt so safe, Josh and his crew were amazing and helpful and
the food was incredible. We were a group of 20 and we were all comfortable, well-fed and full of wonderment. And no one
got seasick! (one of my main fears before leaving). When we arrived at the outer reef on Day 2, with no land in sight, we all
felt the excited feeling of ADVENTURE. The snorkelling was incredible; just like a postcard. So many colourful fish, white tipped
sharks (harmless), soft corals. Josh and his crew took our safety very seriously both on the boat and in the water. They were
extremely professional, patient, helpful and knowledgeable. The feeling of being out to sea after a world-class snorkel,
watching the sun set in the company of great people all sharing the awe was INCREDIBLE. More than merely ‘recommend’
this experience, I say if you don’t do it, you’re missing one of the truly most memorable experiences of your life.”
