Did the "Sunset Tour"and had a lot of fun, this is definitely value for money, very entertaining and really enjoyed the banter of our driver/skipper. The "Larc's" are basic , haven't changed for over 40 yrs and just shows when something is designed and built to stand the test of time, it's still great fun today. Would do this again... More

We had a wonderful day on the full day Paradise tour. The staff were engaging and informative. If you are a photographer there is plenty of bird life and scenery worth your time. The Bustard Bay lighthouse tour was fascinating. Travelling on the LARC was an adventure in itself but thoroughly enjoyable. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea were plentiful.... More

Best coffee, great staff. We had coffee every day while staying in 1770, only place to go. Having been a barista for 20 years I'm fussy. No matter who made it, it was always great Lyn
