Happy Customers

"We took the kids on the Whitehaven/snorkelling adventure with Red Cat and they throughly enjoyed it. It was their first time snorkelling and loved it, feeding the big fishing, seeing the coral and just the underwater world. Then the breathtaking view of Whitehaven, just magnificent and postcard views. We swam at Whitehaven and the water was beautiful and clear. The sand snow white and the weather was perfect. Our crew - Cameron & Ryan were fantastic. They were great hosts knowledgable and looked after us well. Lunch was yummy. Thank you it was a great day, highly recommend Red Cat and we would certainly go out with them again. Very happy customer!"
