  • We had an amazing time at Lady Musgrave. The journey is lengthy (2 hours each way) but the staff is friendly and funny stopping for a chat every so often. It’s no wonder the island is far away...  more »
  • What a great day! Staff were friendly, decent buffet lunch and Lady Musgrave was phenomenal! Went during Turtle season and saw heaps of them! Along with great selection of fish, coral, clams etc...  more »
  • A wonderful place to visit only lost 1 star from the trip there and back - although everything was done to make everyone comfortable on the trip. It was not comfortable and you really do need to take the advice about motion sickness -- and take all the medication necessary 2 + hours of wave smashing hell ride will get to the best or you -- but the destination is superb the crew and guides and glass bottomboat are world class in fact definitely the place to go.
  • This small island is a gem! Took a snorkeling tour here in August and loved it. Got to see whales as we first approached the island!! The walking tour across the island wasn’t for me. Tons of birds and tons of opportunities to get pooped on :/ Thankfully it didn’t happen to me!
