(http://www.oceanrafting.com.au/) A definite recommendation for anyone who wants a short tour of the Whitsunday Islands without spending 400+ $$$ for an entire day. It includes snorkeling, the tour, climb to Hill Inlet, your lunch, and hilarious tour guides who won't allow a second of boredom. (take my advice and sit on the side of the boat for this one, especially if you're around for the whale migrating season - such a good view!)
