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!

The trip to get there and back is too long for the amount of time we get. We only had 20 minutes after arriving before the excursion, and then about an hour after it, so it was a rushed meal and swim. It could be a wonderful day but needs to be way more time on the island, it felt rushed the entire time with no time to actually see the island.

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!
