We did Fozzy’s 3 Hour, 3 Island Tour yesterday,(Tuesday 17th November 2020). We got a local Taxi from Beachcomber Coconut Holiday Park at South Mission Beach, which dropped us right out the front of the Water Taxi's Office. We knew straight away we were in good hands as Nancy greeted us. We were welcomed on board by Skipper Stuart, besides us there were 3 other couples. We stopped briefly at Dunk Island (passenger pick up) then cruised around while Skipper Stuart chatted about the Family Island Group and took us around Timana, Kumboola and finally & Bedarra Island, where we stopped at a quiet beach & floated around in the clear warm water & just chilled on the beach on some boulder/rocks under coconut trees. We chatted with the others, and all dreamed of being stranded on a deserted Island with supplies of Lobster, Prawns and alcohol being flown in on a weekly basis.... Stop dreaming.... I can say though that I thoroughly recommend this tour to take a step back and chill for a few hours. We took an esky with cold drinks and some nibbles. Thank You to Skipper Stuart for a great fun Day, and thank you Nancy for allowing this opportunity. Peter & Maureen

What an excellent tour. Everyone we dealt with was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. After cruising around the islands you get to swim and relax on an amazing beach with crystal clear water and white sand. Cannot understand why anyone would complain about getting their legs wet when exiting or entering the boat. It’s not a drama or dangerous there is no swell and you are assisted by 2 people it’s totally safe. Thanks for showing us the paradise you live in. Recommend to all

We did Fozzy’s tour yesterday. It was a glorious sunny day & the ocean was sparkling. After wading through the thigh high water to board the boat, we stopped briefly at Dunk Island (passenger pick up) then cruised around while Skipper Stuart chatted about the Family iIsland Group & Bedarra Island which is an exclusive privately owned island. We stopped at a quiet beach on Bedarra & floated around in the clear warm water & just chilled on the beach. Well worth the $60 per Adult cost. NB: You will get wet getting onto & off the boat so wear appropriate clothing / swimmers. BYO cold drinks / snacks.

We are staying at Mission Beach and wanted to check out Dunk Island. We are so glad we did! As soon as we checked in with Nancy we knew it’d be a good trip. We were lucky to have excellent weather and the taxi ride was lovely and smooth. The island does seem deserted but we loved it because it’s so relaxing. We only did the half day at Dunk Island but would come back to do the whole day island hopper trip.
