Thank you for your fantastic review! Our LARC + Lunch! Tour is always extremely fun, very relaxing & most informative. What better way to spend a couple of hours looking for shells, taking in the breathtaking views of Bustard Bay, spotting wildlife and cruising the coastline of 1770. You say "do it" ... we say it is a "must do".... More

Really good tour which I enjoyed very much. I think the highlight for me was the sand boarding. Could have done that all day. Other highlight is definitely the guides Tarni and Blake. Both were very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna which I loved. I personally would have loved another swimming spot stop to maybe break the longish drives... More

A great day, excellent way to see more of beautiful 1770 and surrounding area, it's wildlife esp the beach thick knee, the history of the lighthouse and the people involved, the fun of sand boarding and travelling on sand and water - appealing to young and old(er)
