Great day out!

Was a great trip started off with the ferry over to Mortan bay, then got the chance to look around the resort before grabbing lunch and heading on the marine tour staff were very friendly! Got the chance to have a few drinks before heading back on the ferry home. Would recommend this tour!

It was due to rain all week here in Brisbane. Once we arrived here we tried to cancel. It was 2 days before our trip but not the full 48 hours that they requested. We were on an airplane at 7 AM in the morning so we did not know of the weather nor could we have cancelled while in the air. We have requested a refund but so far---none! We will keep you posted on how well they handle their visitors!

I would not use this tour company they can’t help you if something comes up. Best to book directly through the island. Spent a lot of the day restraints after I was given incorrect information by the company and then was charged for the company mistake. Sandboarding was fun but no way you have time for anything else. Not lunch or beach and barely a break to change very rushed.
