My sister and I went parasailing with Hamilton Island watersports and it was fantastic! Nice smooth ride to the point where we got to fly high above the boat. We went around near Qualia so had a great view. They brought us down to the water so we could dip our feet in. Definately an experience worth having, it was... More

The Jetryder jet powered speed boat ride is definitely a must do on your list of activities. Loads of fun with lots of spins and turns and also you get great views of Hamilton Island and surrounding islands plus a little history tour. Be prepared to get very wet (even more fun) but if you suffer from vertigo or the... More

My sister and I went tandem parasailing and it was so much fun! It is weather dependent, we were cancelled twice because it was too windy but was worth it when we did get to do it. Definitely recommend this.

This was one of our favourite excursions from Hamilton Island. It was only a small group. We were taken to 2 great snorkelling spots on a small but comfortable speed boat,which meant we got to our destinations quickly.We visited Whitehaven beach and the inlet which were truly amazing.The highlight was a lunch stop on a beautiful beach where they had...

Last minute booking with this company on 11/2/2016. Boat had ample room for 15 passengers with overhead cover to block the sun. Our captain, Paul & assistant Rosie, were just awesome. Very professional, experienced, and had a blast. Stopped at the Whitehaven beach for over an hour stroll, a hike to the Inlet for some beautiful pictures, and stopped at... More

We went to Hamilton Island as we were there with P&O Pacific Aria and wanted to try something ashore. We were a family group of 9 ranging form 9 to 55. The jetboat was fantastic, we got soaked, as well as seeing most of Hamilton and surrounding islands. The guide was very friendly and stopped every now and then to... More

We were desperate to get out and see the Whitsundays by boat and wanted to avoid the large tour groups that are most often available. This small, personal tour was everything we were looking for! The staff, Paul and Rosie, were friendly and knowledgeable. Our day started with a direct boat ride to Whitehaven Beach where we were able to... More

Jetryder was fantastic fun. Driver's skills were amazing. Reefryder to Whitehaven beach and chalkie's beach was very enjoyable. Good snorkelling on chalkie's. Would have liked to have been dropped off at other end of Whitehaven beach though.

Thankyou for reviewing your time with " Hamilton Island Watersports." We are glad that you enjoyed "Whitehaven Beach", unfortunately our GRMPA PERMIT doesn't allow us to do beach drop offs at the other end! We are however allowed to go into Tongue Bay behind Whitehaven on our full day "Whitsunday Explorer" tour. Maybe next time you could try this tour... More
