Fantastic experience.

The crews were very nice and helpful. Beautiful day on the islands and awesome weather to swim and snorkeling. Would love to see more wildlife though. But still, it was a fun trip !

Was a pleasant day

It was a relaxing day out on the water and visiting two secluded islands. It was unfortunate that we didn't do snorkelling over a reef and didn't see anything whilst snorkeling but sand! We also didn't see much sealife whilst on the boat. They tell us these things are unpredictable. The day wasn't as subscribed or as it looks replicate on the web. However, our guides were fantastic, down to earth people that actually made the trip worth the while. I do recommend the tour, especially for families but perhaps when the season and time of day for traveling to the reef is appropriate.

Thank you so much for your review. We do manage to snorkel the reef most times, but at the moment we are experiencing extraordinary high tides which in turn puts a lot of water of the reef and creates quite a run. The safety of our guests is paramount. Thank you for your kind words regarding our guides, they are a fantastic team. Hope to see you back in Hervey Bay again one day.

Fabulous Day Out!!

We had the most fabulous day out with Wil & the crew! Nothing was too much trouble and we learned the Aboriginal words for the things we saw which was really interesting! We saw turtles and various fish and huge eagles and other nesting birds on the islands. We would definitely recommend this tour to everyone, young and not so young!

Simply out of this world

Words can not describe how good this experience was , from the moment we arrived we met the most relaxed but very well organised outfit , all the team are the nicest down to earth people, we hadnโ€™t even boarded the boat yet , once we left the marina we where treated to the most amazing lesson in Maori and Aboriginal heritage which lasted throughout the trip it was extremely informative whilst cruising around the pristine waters of Harvey Bay , we explore on foot some story telling islands spotted some stingrays and numerous species of birds , we laughed along the way and experienced a life changing trip , one we will never forget and canโ€™t wait to bring family and friends on the next journey , whilst in Harvey Bay you must meet these guys and experience your very own unforgettable memories
