English Language Comprehension

Because many of the tours we offer are low guest numbers with sometimes only 2 crew, it is very important that the guests have basic English understanding. Guests will spend time snorkelling and swimming and it is critical for their safety that they follow the instructions from the crew, while they are participating in the activities. If customers cannot understand English, it is important that a companion travelling can speak english and translate for the non english speaking guest. We do have snorkelling summaries in other languages, which are provided for guests to read. If guests have any concerns at all, please contact us.

Whitsunday Bliss reserves the right to alter the tour or the itinerary of any of it's tours and organise alternative carriers to those advertised if necessary. The Operator will always consider the comfort and safety of guests and staff and as a result, some of the Whitsunday Icons may not be visited if the wind, visibility or tidal conditions are not suitable. If it is raining, our tours still operate, as the guests can still experience the Whitsundays, including swimming and bush walking. If the winds are light, the tours will still run, however, it will be necessary to use the motors on the boats to get to the stops around the islands. We do not provide any guarantee that the winds will be consistent and from the correct direction to make sailing always possible.
