About Us

It’s a Wild Story!

 In 2005, Julie from the UK met Asher, born on Kangaroo Island, while working in the Whitsundays. Red Cat Adventures was their first business that started in 2011 with the boat they fell in love with now; they own four boats in the Whitsundays, and their family also expanded with three children.

After years of research, development and perfecting new tourism offerings in the Whitsundays Red Cat Adventures team started to develop a plan to expand into other regions. Wildcat was born, and the first departure date was 1st December 2021.

Wildcat is a one-of-a-kind Vessel blending technology and practicality and the only marine tourism business in Mackay. The Vessel has many user-friendly features that will ensure a fun and unforgettable experience. Wildcat has Onboard toilet facilities, a cold bar to purchase alcoholic beverages, a beach landing ladder, paddleboards, snorkelling equipment and fins, a rescue tender, large open windows and roof access for whale watching!
