This trip was AWESOME...and exceeded all expectations! The journey up & down pristine beaches and the crossing of four creeks; together with a lighthouse & headland visit was just a mesmerising and memorable experience. Superb views & wildlife. It was made all the more fun/informative/fulfilling by the company/conversation and genuinely 'good crack' from Sam & Blake, our guides...and not forgetting... More

We decided to book an afternoon on the LARC and glad we did, Neil the driver was very informative and we loved hearing his passion about the environment, indigenous culture and the wonderful work that Sea Shepherd do, he pointed out many different varieties of birds, historical sites and the local surrounds. The only downfall was that we decided to... More
