Perfect for Private Charters
Just wanted to thank you & your team very much indeed for the very efficient & friendly service I received when organising my trip in North Qld.
We were all very impressed with the accommodation & Travstar certainly made it an easy way to organise everything.
Would highly recommend sailing on the Shaolin to any of your clients who are interested in a more unique experience on the great Barrier Reef. Small groups, good food and very competent, friendly staff.
Will look forward to my next trip up North.
