I wish to a dive tour and visit the Whitsunday Islands I meet a guy at a hostel that said Powerplay was the gun new boat and good value. Others have told us that the Whitsundays has some really old boats that are very overcrowded. I dont think I can afford an expensive boat. can anyone advise what would be the best of the cheaper ones.
tallarook seem to do the best deals they advertise 3 days but it is only 46 hours best to shop around in airlie beach but go to the offices of the companies dont trust the hostels "independent advice"the sailing companies all have deals running with the hostels so the ones that bring the most groups back to the bar for a party after the trip are the boats that the "independent advice" hostels will sell most off regardless of price
tallarook 3 was cheap but as you said way over crowded. I lucked out and got a job washing dishes for a free sail on it so I didn't really care. but everyone else on it complained most of the trip, though partly because the crew were a bit mean. I also paid for "The Pride of Airlie" it was a bit more expensive but I had a great trip.
