Superb day, excellent value for money. Guides really helpful and organised. Snorkelling, kayaking and sand boarding were amazing. Lunch was great with a nice selection of salads and meats (not just your standard white bread, soggy sandwiches). Ferry back to Brisbane is a nice way to chill after all the sun and activities. Would definitely recommend!!!

As an animal lover, I was very excited to take part in the snorkelling and kayaking parts of this tour. And when we got around to them I did really enjoy it, however I was disappointed to find out that sandboarding would take up the same time as both of those activities combined. The day felt quite rushed, to the point where the last ferry was pulling off as we jumped on and so there was little freedom to explore the beautiful island or sea. Whilst I did very much enjoy parts of the tour, I felt that the day could have been easily improved by loosening the chains and allowing some optional free time to explore. All 3 activities were "follow me" which I find limits the adventure of being somewhere so unique, it gave me a school trip vibe. Be aware also that the 4WD experience is half the group (apx. 30) on a coach, very slowly making your way through very bumpy forrest. Don't get me wrong though, the wildlife did make it worth it for us! Just would have liked more time to enjoy it.
