We have been on a LARC in sunny coast before but never have we laughed so much and learn so much about the area. We did the afternoon tour and for $38 we definitely got our money worth. We had a beautiful sunset, a photo with the LARC and the history lesson was fantastic Thank you for a great afternoon

First let me explain that the owner, Neil, is one of the best blokes you will ever meet! You instantly feel like best mates after only knowing him for a few minutes. The Larc! is a great experience... a 4WD and a boat - all in one [but please don't call it an Aqua Duck in front of Neil... it's... More

Such a great day. David and Isaac were so informative and funny. History of the lighthouse was so Interesting. Only downside was the lunch. Would have loved a BBQ. Even a sausage and onions in bread would have been better than sandwiches. Otherwise a fantastic day.
