Kids words "this was the coolest day ever!" Can't beat those reviews 😉 The captain was very nice, and informative. Education and fun all in one! (Bonus, the kids got to have a go DRIVING the LARK)

As it was afternoon the LARC only had 1 trip out across the channel to the beach and were hoping to see more bird life, unfortunately not this day. Interesting, however, a bit rough and the driver-captain was amusing and told us a little history of the area. Maybe the all day trip would be more interesting.

If you are looking for a different way to travel, try a trip in the LARC. It is an amphibious 5 tonne vehicle fitted with a 300 horsepower engine that can go just about anywhere on land and water.

Had a great time on the sunset tour in the LARC. We learnt about the local birdlife living amongst the sand dunes and in the water, and at the same time were kept amused by our genial guide. Splashing through the shallows, bumping across the sand and churning through the water was all great fun and after coming ashore we... More
