Our guides were so knowledgeable about the environment, the bird life, the lighthouse history. There was nothing I disliked. We had a lovely smoko and lunch with billy tea. We saw white bellied sea eagles, brahamy kites, whistling kites, red capped plovers, curlews - the sand dune toboganning was a hit with my teenagers - the day was so enjoyable.

We went on the whole day paradise cruise on 2/7/14. So glad we did. Going across beach and water where no other craft can follow. The crew pointed out all the wildlife, and photo opportunities. We came upon a sea snake on the beach, and Neil managed to scoop up to big muddies in shallow waters just near Bustard Head... More

Thank you for your wonderful review. The LARC! is a wonderful relaxing way to travel over the pristine blue waters of the Bustard Head Bay. Glad you took advantage of the so many photo opportunities of the local wildlife. Bustard Head is a fisherman's paradise! The picnic area is such a pretty relaxed place to eat and enjoy the wildlife... More

I really enjoyed going out on the LARC. Such a unique way to experience this stunning area. Neil was very knowledgable and gave us really interesting information on the history of the local area and the wildlife. Would definitely recommend booking this and wish I could have done the whole day.

We thoroughly enjoyed the full day Paradise Tour with Neil and David. The commentary was entertaining and informative, giving us a lesson on the history of the area and the people who lived and worked there, as well as information on the various birds and other wildlife. It was great fun travelling on land and water, crossing several creeks, then... More

Booked this sunset tour online and didn't realise how much fun this could be. It's not the fastest ride in the world but our guide kept us fully entertained and informed about the environment the time just flew. It's a rare experience and the guys at the Larc were fun, helpful and all-round awesome. Our guide and driver was fantastic...... More

My 3 year old son and I went on our first LARC tour at the end of February and we were back again with the whole family a few weeks later! We love it! Everyone involved with this company has been warm and friendly and the drivers/guides are hilarious. I totally recommend a LARC tour.

Don't bother. If you are planning on attempting to use this "attraction", please BYO friends as they do not conduct the trip without a minimum quota.

We are sorry you feel that way about our business, especially as you have not experienced a tour. Sadly in February and March every year our destination has less visitors than most other months and it is sometimes difficult to achieve a minimum number of guests and confirm all the scheduled tours. This information is printed on our brochures and... More
