Driver/skipper Blake was 100% Aussie fun. We enjoyed it very much and so did the kids (9-14). Driving into the sea and then over the sand bars nice and sedate on the way out, hearing a bit of interesting history and wildlife facts in between making us laugh. On the way back the kids got wet sitting on the edge,... More

We went as a family with a 21, 17 and 7 year old on a wet, windy day (full day to Bustard Head lighthouse, 7/1/17) and still had a trip that everyone loved. If you don't enjoy it, it will not be because of the company that runs the tour. Very well organised; genuinely friendly, engaged and knowledgeable guides. Excellent... More
