Amazing tour. We walked with the dinasours very well run tour and a lot of local history and information. It was only an hour but that was all we needed to see and hear all info. There is also a little cafe on site and all staff were very friendly and helpful.

Agree with other reviewers that this tour is both fun and really informative; highly recommended with something for everyone. A couple of other things that might be helpful to others: Myles went to no end of trouble to make sure that my friend who is claustrophobic was able to enjoy the tour by sitting right next to the door of...

With the Big Bird running well, the business is flying high. Well done to the whole team. This business is amazingly diverse with Scenic & Prehiztoric tours; those involving a soiree on the tidal flats at sunset; a special flight to see the wrecks of flyimg boats that were strafed during WWII; a small licensed cafe and sales of art...

We did first cruise of the morning (6am as the hovercraft trips are dependent on tides) It was a shore excursion during our recent cruise to Broome. Miles was very informative and you could tell he really enjoyed his job. We were seated right at the back of the hovercraft but I found it still easy to hear the commentary... More

I loved this tour. Miles is eloquent and knowledgeable. He has a sense of humour. The scenery was/is fabulous and to have bubbles and snacks on the tidal flats was very special. I want to take my grandchildren there to see the dinosaur footprints. Great photographing opportunity. Thank you Miles for a special Broome memory

This is a pollutant to the environment, it is noisy and destructive. The noise of this hovercraft can be heard from a great distance and sea grasses are being destroyed. I would not go on this tour again. It is expensive and detrimental to the surroundings. I feel embarrassed that I chose it as an activity while staying in Broome.... More

Went on early morning tour. Staff were friendly. Miles was a great hovercraft driver and host. Good commentary. Dinosaur footprints very cool for kids to see and to learn about history. Good quality tour.
