It was a windy day when we went on the full day Larc tour to the lighthouse. Nevertheless, the tour was first class. The guide was a constant source of information on the way there and back. At the lighthouse, we met the caretaker and his wife who gave us a terrific tour of the lighthouse and museum. He was... More

Through enjoyed the Larc paradise tour. Apart from the uniqueness of travelling in an amphibious vehicle, the trip to Bustard Head Lightstation, was fascinating. Our hosts at the lighthouse were entertaining & informative. Blake our driver was fun and we were kept interested and amused by Dave. We loved the sand dune boarding. A great family day, incorporating fun and... More

This was so much better than I could have imagined - this was the sunset tour and it's only when you're out on the larc that you really start to see the incredible things on the beaches and sandbanks. Commentary is funny and educational so appeals to both young and old. The sunset tour does not take too long but... More

Beaut. Cheap. You are garenteed to see lots of wild life and learn lots aswell. Can cater for your food needs.Learn lots of history. And try SAND BOARDING! Be careful. I got sand in mu mouth then retired to help wax the boards of more intrepid people. You shold go on Saturday or Wednesday but Monday is fine, too.
