    I had a few brilliant few days on board the New Horizon. I will admit, I was quite apprehensive and nervous before we left, being a bad sleeper and not feeling well, but I had a great time. The sleeping and bathroom arrangements aren't amazing, but on a boat that is no surprise, and they were perfectly satisfactory for 2 nights. The boat itself is lovely. The crew were great - all a good laugh, but professional (for the most part) in their respective duties. Crossy in particular is a real credit to True Blue (and saved my GoPro for me when I left it!). The catering by Conor was great considering we were on a boat (delightful spag Bol) and there was plenty of food for everyone, which so often isn't the case with tour trips. The scuba diving and snorkelling were excellent, and one of the highlights for sure. Of course Whitehaven beach was amazing, and we had spent a good amount of time there. I was lucky in that the group on my boat were all nice and we had a good laugh in the evening with a few chilled drinks. Definitely much better than the Clipper if you aren't wild on boozing and partying 24/7! My only comments for improvement are that there isn't really any shade on the outside of the boat so if you don't want to be in the sun literally all day, there isn't really anywhere to go if you don't want to sit inside in the tiny little kitchen area.

    So the trip was a good one but the company has lots to improve on. 1) the boat is small. There's no place to lay out and relax. 2) they force you to get up at 6am. Yes, I mean force. Instead of just telling you breakfast is available at 6am and letting you decide if you want to get up for it, they come into the rooms, turn on all of the lights, yell at you to wake up, and then they start playing annoying songs until you get up. This is what made me hate the crew. They did this each day. 3) they didn't book a decent ratio of girls to guys. Definitely was a sausage fest. 4) the crew is constantly hitting on all the girls and trying to hook up. 5) they tell you to bring your own alcohol but fail to mention that it's basically going to be communal as they throw it all in one cooler and everyone ends up drinking your stuff. That was my experience. Cool spots to visit but I do not recommend this company to do the trip. Hope this is helpful

    DO NOT BUY. Don't be fooled, it is not 2 days 2 nights, it's one evening (4PM leave port) and 11AM return, pretty much one day of doing activities. Save yourself the money and do a day tour, 450 dollars + we payed 20 dollar for an upgrade when they knew full well the weather was going to be atrocious (nothing they can do about that, except maybe not charge us to upgrade...) Crew was awesome, Travis was great, carried the crew and the tour, food good also, but dissapointed overall, feel let down. Don't spend your money here, go do a day trip. I don't usually complain but I feel throughly let down by this Tour, I spent alot and got so little in return. Mostly infuriated about the $20 upgrade when the weather is due to be bad? All my other tours have been insane and great value but this one took the biscuit.
    True Blue Sailing commented on this review
    Dear Josh We at True Blue Sailing are really sorry that you felt let down by the New Horizon trip. Thankyou for your feedback which is very important to us so that we can constantly upgrade and improve our services. Unfortunately your ticket was purchased in the low season and you travelled during the high season which is the reason for the $20 extra payment, it was not an upgrade, the details of which are written on your ticket. Your trip departed at 3.00pm and returned after 2 nights sleeping on board at midday which classifies this as a 2 day/2 night trip as set out by the strict guidelines that New Horizon adheres to. You paid a discounted rate according to the agent that booked you. We do understand that the weather conditions sometimes make for a less than perfect trip, but the crew we employ go above and beyond to try to make the best of the less than perfect weather. Travis is grateful for the compliments you have paid him. We pride ourselves on the quality of our trips and New Horizon is considered one of the most popular boats in the Whitsundays for good reason. We have noted your dissatisfaction at paying the high season fee and will address this issue with our agents and assess the current system in place. Apologies Josh and we sincerely hope you will come back to the Whitsundays in the near future when the weather is more desirable. Warm Regards Steven Smallman Operations Manager
