Day with the kids and grandparents. Wonderful weather coupled with a very knowledgeable and awesome tour guide / driver. Light house access is very cool, lunch super tasty, 4wd drive comfortable. Highly recommended.

Our tour was great with only 2 couples and the driver. We learnt a lot about the wildlife, ocean and the island. Defiantly recommend this tour for a great day out.

Unique beach drive in 4WD. Suitable for both young and mature age. You won’t see the colour pallet of these ocean or sand hill views anywhere else. Craig was the perfect guide. Knowledgeable, interesting and skilled. Once in a lifetime experience.
