We absolutely recommend this tour! You get a mix of local knowledge, beautiful scenery and wildlife. Although we weren't very lucky today and didn't get to see any turtles or dolphins, we still had a fantastic day. We do understand it is wildlife after all...More

Thank you for the review, but I feel it could be for the Tasman Venture Remote Fraser Tour, which is wonderful. I will pass on the operators that you enjoyed the day. I suggest we may have recommended and booked the tour for you. :)
