Nancy and her team offer 10/10 every time we visit dunk (annually for years!) and always do their best to meet our needs. We travel with multiple kids and a bunch of gear for camping and the team always goes above and beyond in making sure we get across to dunk and back without a hassle. They are flexible, super helpful, knowledgeable about the local area/weather, highly competent and so friendly. Turning up at their Wongaling beach office is like visiting family! We can’t recommend them enough for the dunk trip and other tours they run. Thanks so much Nancy and team!!!

The staff who run the water taxi service were very helpful. They gave us info on what to do on the island and also the one lady even let us borrow her car so we could drive to a local cafe to grab sandwiches to take with us (we'd only just met her!).

Dunk island is very authentic and it felt like we had the place to ourselves, it was the perfect way to spend four hours.

We were happy with our experience with our transfers on the water taxi to dunk island. We are a family of six and we rode our way around mission beach including going to the water taxi. The staff were friendly and kind and held our bikes for the day when we were out. Everything ran on time and it’s great value for money:)

Used the water taxi a few times and always had excellent service. The island is breathtaking, at sunset swimming in the ocean, it felt like we were in Italy, it was truly surreal. Will be back again for more! One of my favourite spots on the world.

We were going out to mission beach dive and were going by water taxi.
It was quite fun but as a disabled woman who can't grap anything I think the trip was a little bit to much for me. It was very difficult for me to keep my balance at the same time have an eye on my 2 kids on 4 and 5 years old.

The team at Mission Beach Water Taxi offer good service and a great day excursion to Dunk Island. It's only a 10 minute trip from the beach to the island and guests are provided with a simple map and instructions for options to enjoy their day walking and swimming. The island loop via the lookout is well worthwhile, although the track can be a little soggy and difficult to follow in places. There is water on the island (and hot showers) but no food as at May 2021.

Dunk Island was worth the visit. Although the resort is uninhabited, I had a really pleasant 3 hours there. I got the 9am water taxi which picked us up again at 12. There is a shower and toilet block and drinking water near the jetty but you need to bring your own food. It had rained a few days earlier, so the track through the bush to Muggy Muggy beach was pretty rough in parts and wouldn't suit anyone who is really unsteady on their feet. The snorkelling on the beach was safe and I did see a baby turquoise clam in some coral which was special, but the rest was rather murky - again due to sand cover from recent storms. The boat trip was quick, comfortable, on time and the guys at Mission Beach Water Taxi were lovely. If I had had more time, I would have taken more of their tours as they were a fantastic bunch. I was travelling on my own. Highly recommended!

Tried to get to Dunk Island at a time that suited us time wise. So there was a sudden opportunity to 'dash' to Dunk with the opposition who couldn't bring us back so asked Mission Beach Water Taxi to do the return trip. We were told in a 'firm' voice to come back with the opposition and when I tried to explain we couldn't she said she'd have to talk to the skipper. Hmmm. 5 minutes later told we could come back with Mission Beach Water Taxi. Got on board and there were 16 vacant seats on their boat. Obviously there was always room on the Mission Beach Water taxi... Hmmm. Almost held to ransom. Not a nice feeling. My Sister travelled from Port Macquarie in NSW and I travelled from Brisbane to honour our older Sister who passed away on Dunk Island a few years ago. Already a sad, teary and long journey - so Mission Beach Water Taxi's attitude and behaviour was not warranted. I suspect a third party intervened on our behalf - that's the only reason why we were able to get back to the mainland. 16 vacant seats. Hmmm Oh the name of the opposition who we highly recommend...Dunk Island Charters - Jason and Bec. Thank you and others behind the scenes.

We went over in the morning. We took our snorkel gear and snorkelled off Muggy Beach. We had the beach to ourselves. The snorkelling was poor visibility, but we were still able to see a few fish and a few colourful corals. We then walked to the sandy beach before our transfer back at 12:00.
Upon arrival back at our car, we realised our car key was missing and probably at Muggy Bay. The taxi company recommended a cafe that we could walk to and get lunch (they offered to drive us, but we wanted the exercise) They allowed my husband to ride along for the 3:00 transfer and even dropped him off at Muggy Bay. Thankfully our car key hasn’t been washed out with the tide. We were very impressed with their customer service. We are looking forward to scuba diving with them in the future

I headed over to Dunk Island for the day. 9:00am water taxi service over, 3:30pm return (which ended up being 4:00pm as the boat was running late).

Pros: Dunk Island is beautiful, secluded, staff and Captain were all lovely!

Cons: 7 hours was way too long on this island (for what I did). Unfortunately, on my visit, it was way to hot to do the long walks. So my visit was limited to a walk to Muggy Muggy Beach and another up the sand spit and around that beach. The water was also quite "muddy" looking and low tide, so hard to swim as well.

Advice: I think if I were able to walk the Island Circuit, my day would have been filled no problem. If you are just looking to do the shorter walks and a swim, shorter time would be enough. In hindsight, I probably should have taken the 11:00am over, which would have given me 5 hours on the island. My advice to the Dunk Island Water Taxis, perhaps a mid afternoon taxi service back for those who take the 9:00am over? I understand there is a noon service, but in my experience, 3 hours on the island would have been too short, but 7 hours was definitely too long.

Great experience though!
