Fun day

A great way to get to see North Straddie. Fun, friendly drivers and staff. Door-to-door pickup made things very easy. Was stoked to see koalas, kangaroos, dolphins and turtles and have a swim in lake and beach.

The best money spent on a day out!

From the time we made our booking, the team at Coastal Island Safaris were so friendly and attentive. We were contacted promptly via email once booked to confirm the booking. On the day our guide was on time (actually a bit early) arriving. The drive to the ferry was really good - Greg treats everyone like they are friends of his that he is taking out for the day. Conversation was easy, and it didn't feel like a sightseeing tour.. just a casual chat with a bunch of people. He even managed to find us some wildlife in suburbia BEFORE we got to the ferry! The ferry ride was great - a really cute morning tea setup was had, and we were lucky enough to go and visit the ferry captain too. The actual time on North Stradbroke was phenomenal. It's not called a 4WD safari for nothing... and the hand holds in the back of the vehicle definitely get used! We saw such beautiful vistas, learned lots about the island and its history, the local Quandamooka people, and the wildlife... wow! Whales, dolphins, turtles, kangaroo, bats! Everything was provided for on the day... you can literally turn up with a camera, a water bottle, and your swimmers. Dont bring food, a book to read, or any other distractions - you have a full day planned with an expert company that will ensure your day is amazing! And worth every single cent paid for, plus more!

Amazing day to Stradbroke

We had a really amazing day out to Stradbroke island. We saw many animals such as Koalas, Kangaroos, Turtles, Dolphins, Bats, and more. Greg showed us many amazing spots on the island. The 4 wheel driving was a lot of fun. Also driving over beaches getting to see a lot was so beautiful. Going for a swim and having a really good lunch just rounded up the day perfectly. Overall, it was a really amazing day and a lot of fun with Greg.
