Better than snori

We took our boat tour, expecting to snorkel with turtle. Luckily we saw several turtles, but they ran away quickly. however, the performance of Joel, the Aboriginal guide, was better than anything we had expected. Thumbs up 😘

Perfect day out

We really enjoyed this tour. Wil and Jo were wonderful hosts and we loved the hearing the local cultural Knowledge. The vibe was chilled and the music was icing on the cake. Highly recommend.

Dinka Dinka was great

Dinka Dinka made the trip fun his knowledge and stories of the area were fantastic. We were disappointed with not seeing any turtles or dolphins and also that we couldn't stop on Big Woody due to weather conditions 😕
