Interesting information and history about the island, great scenery as we travelled along the coast. Enjoyed watching the birds that frequent the different bays catching fish. Snorkelling enjoyed by those who took part. Great morning tea delivered individually. Wonderful viewing of a few whales up close. A circumnavigation of the island was unexpected but much enjoyed as the coastline varies so much.

Really enjoyed our boat trip around Magnetic Island. The captain knew all the little spots inside and out. Morning tea was delicious and we had it on a secluded quiet beach. Snorkeling was amazing. Can't fault the experience in any way! Would highly recommend!!!
