  • The all day Paradise Tour was magical! Full of beautiful scenery, driving from sand bar to sand bar, through the waters, including a very comprehensive history of the area from our tour guide Sammy. Bird watching was also included, we saw multiple stingrays throughout the day, the Bustard Head Lighthouse tour was wonderful and informative. After a sumptuous lunch in a natural bush setting it was off to dune surfing, a real blast! All in all a great tour, thank you to Sammy and Macka for a great day out!
  • We did the one hour tour and it was well worth it. The presenter was knowledgeable and fun. If we come back we will definitely consider doing a longer trip. It is an experience you won't regret.
