Knowledgrable. Beautiful. Laid back day

I LOVED this tour!! Dustin was really knowledgeable and answered all my questions. He knew a lot about the wildlife and indigenous aspects. We saw dolphins, loads of fish and beautoful corals. 2 islands and a lovely lunch with wraps cookies and all the fresh fruit you could want. Nice calm sailing and fun to look through the glass bottom.

Great outing!

We had a lovely day aboard the Milbi. Staff both in the office and on the boat were flawless: very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and the children's enjoyment (thanks Wil for letting them be the boat captain for a moment). We saw turtles and dolphins and splashed around on beautiful Pelican banks. Special mention to Dustin who entertained us and lived the eco spirit of the company by going around Round Island to pick up rubbish. Great example to show the future generations!

Disappointing

I booked this trip due to glowing reviews. Originally booked for a weekday supplier changed it to a Saturday. Perhaps the skipper felt there were better things he could be doing than taking a tour. He seemed very disinterested and unenthusiastic. There were 6 customers. He offered a chance for a swim, one person expressed keenness for this but her swim never happened. She must have been disappointed. We were left on a small island with no toilets and minimal shade while the boat anchored off the island. Seemed pointless.

Hi Elizabeth, It is a shame that your tour did not meet your expectations. We always enjoy taking the tour and it will only be changed due to weather or maintenance. On Round Island there is a drop toilet and there are lots and lots of trees, so I'm unsure of your comment of minimal shade., The swimming options there are fantastic so I'm unsure as to why the other passenger didn't swim, the waters are ideal for swimming and is crystal clear. Maybe he/she decided it was too cool to swim? Upon checking the weather, it was a northerly at 10 knots. Kind regards, Jacqui
