Reviewed 21 July 2014

Prepare to get your feet a little wet on departure at Wongaling Beach but dry departure on jetty at Dunk. Trip is energising, quick and good fun.

Hi Bill,

Thank you for your review. I guess that's exactly what you want from a ferry transfer, quick and easy! For most the water temp is fine for boarding, it's only the North Queenslanders like us that feel the cold this time of year haha. The southerners love it :)

Hope you can visit again and you enjoyed your day.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

My sister, myself and my daughter did the 3hour Island tour with Captain Fozzy on Friday 18th July. Nancy at the booking office is lovely and friendly and Captain Fozzy a very experienced Captain. His sense of humour and knowledge of the islands is great.The time spent on Bedarra Island was magic, a big thank you to the owners for letting us use their special place. We even got to see a Dugong swimming not far off the beach. It was a perfect day with a little romance included with a proposal made and accepted over on the island. So romantic. Thanks everyone for the awesome day. Reasonable price which also included snorkel equipment.

Thanks so much Maggie, how brilliant was that! Dugong AND an accepted proposal! What a keeper, romantic island magic! That was a great day and thank you for coming on board with us. We are very passionate about the area and it's history so it seems this shows, we love to share it too!

See you again!

“Fast and Friendly”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

A great way to get to and from Dunk Island! My teenage son lost his cell phone while getting out of the boat back on land, and the captain was able to see it underwater and rescue it. The phone was fried, but we were able to transfer the data so the rescue was very very helpful!

“Easy ride to paradise”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Everything went smoothly from booking to checking in to wading out to the speed boat to being on time. $35 return per head is a little steep for the 10 minute journey but Dunk Island makes it worthwhile.

“What a great afternoon”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

My daughter and I spent a very relaxing but informative 3 hours with Fozzie for the Island Tour. 1 hour on the boat followed by 1 1/2 hours soaking up some sun on a private beach on Bedarra Island....who could ask for anything more! Excellent! Well done Fozzie and Nancy!

Jay, thank you for reviewing the Island Tour. We are very lucky to be able to visit this (not so) secret beach location! It's an easy afternoon that one can't help but enjoy, thanks so much for visiting!
