We pre-booked this tour with Levi Baron's Bumping Tours before setting off on our cruise based on previous TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Guided by Ash & Nathan we had a superb day. First stop was 1 hour snorkling at Champagne Beach. Guides in the water point out the different fish and coral and equipment is provided at $5 if required. Bouyancy aids for all insisted which aid snorkelling and prvided comfort for 1 of our party who was not a strong swimmer
Then we visited Ti Tou Gorge - quite a different experience swimming up the gorge (cold but refreshing water) and then jumping in from further up the gorge. Very busy but again safety taken by our informative guides who helped all enjoy the experience.
Third stop was the Trafalgar Falls - but the main highlight was not the sight of the 2 waterfalls (which are very scenic and worth a couple of photos) but sitting in the hot springs which many visitors miss because they do not go in swimwear. Again safety was important and Ash & Nathan took great care with those less mobile to ensure that they could enjoy the experience. Our group (14) had a great time in the sulphur springs, which do not give off gasses, andthe water was warmer than that of a bath at home.
Back in the van and we had stops at various high view points and the Botanical Gardens before return to the ship 6 or so hours later. All for $47 with beer, water and juices provided all day. An excellent day trip and many thanks to Nathan & Ash. Fee includes entrance fees.
Bumping Tours - "Don't worry, be happy" - a theme of the company and very true.
