In the last 12 months over 8 million travellers have published reviews about their experience onto the world’s largest travel site Tripadvisor, with SeaLink Whitsundays sailing into the top 10 experiences and attractions signifying the highest level of excellence in travel.

SeaLink established operations in the Whitsundays in November 2021 and since then has received over 150 five-star reviews from customers for its Big Island Day Tour cruise taking in the amazing Whitsunday Islands with stops at the popular Hill Inlet and Whitehaven Beach.

Less than 1% of Tripadvisor’s listings make it onto their Traveller’s Choice Best of the Best list in a 12-month period, with SeaLink CEO Donna Gauci saying the brilliant experience with SeaLink Whitsundays was a credit to the team and destination.

“We love delivering award-winning experiences all around Australia but what makes this recognition extra special is that it’s voted by actual customers who have experienced the product.”

“Our team at SeaLink loves sharing some of Australia’s most iconic destinations with travellers from all around the world and to stand out amongst Tripadvisor’s one billion reviews as one of the Best of the Best is a true credit to our dedicated Whitsundays’ team.

“I’m incredibly proud to say that our SeaLink crew consistently strive to go above and beyond to provide our guests with a brilliant experience each and every time and this recognition clearly demonstrates that,” she said.

This is the second time in the last three months that SeaLink Whitsundays has been recognised for brilliant customer experiences, after being recognised by Tourism Events Queensland’s 2023 through its Best of Queensland Experiences program.

SeaLink Whitsundays General Manager Rob Mitchell said, “We have the best job in Australia taking guests to the world-famous Hill Inlet and Whitehaven Beach as well as cruising through many of the other stunning islands in the Whitsundays.

“This recognition is extra special because it is our brilliant customer experience and our exceptional team that guests have taken the time to write about - completely independent of us.

“To be in Tripadvisor’s Best of the Best list makes the dedication and energy our team give on each trip to ensure it is the best it can be for our guests completely worthwhile,” he said.

A collection of SeaLink Whitsunday’s recent Tripadvisor 5-star customer reviews include:

  • “Fantastic day with fabulous crew”
  • “Whitehaven heaven”
  • “Fabulous day out. Well worth it.”
  • “A Big Tick for the Big Island Day Tour”
  • “Definitely recommend this stunning Whitsundays Cruise company!”
  • “SeaLink Whitehaven ”
  • “Awesome day out. A must do!”

Ms Gauci said that it was an amazing team effort to have nearly 100% five-star customer reviews since the Whitsundays team started and that they looked forward to welcoming more guests on board for what is guaranteed to be a brilliant experience.
