    The whole day was amazing. Snorkeling with the biggest turtles we have ever seen, kayaking in the creek and riding the tube was so much fun. The crew was so friendly and made the day extraordinary. Food was on point as well. We can recommend it for sure.

    This had to be my favourite trip of all. we had previously done the daintree rainforest, barrier reef and Whitsundays but this surpassed even the Whitsundays. perhaps because the beaches were the same but we were so much more immersed in the beach with the water activities.

    The team at Tasman Venture were such a delight, they were super friendly, accomodating and very knowledgable. We were so lucky to have spotted a yearling humpback whale even though it was not whale watching season - they made sure we got the full experience! Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed. Thumbs up to the team - Lloyd, Mel and BJ. Thank you for showing us a great time.
