    Different activities for an island visit after travelling down the coast, including kayaking through the creek on the island (where I luckily also learned how to steer a kayak after getting stuck a few times, which was also fun), tubbing was really cool and fun on the ocean and a 2nd kayaking session on the blue, clear ocean next to the amazingly white beach made it for great views. Saw a lot of white and clear-looking fish in the water swimming around us, which was really cool. Great crew as well, helpful and made sure we were happy with all the activities!

    The remote Fraser Island tour was amazing! From snorkelling in clear waters, to kayaking through mangroves to tubing in open water and more, it was amazing. The team were extremely friendly and helpful, especially Katie, Rachael and Mark. Great value for money and would recommend to anyone who LOVES a day on the water with all water based activities!

    This tour was excellent value for money with a well planned and coordinated day of activities including lunch. The team was outstanding throughout what must have been a very demanding day. They were so happy to meet everybody’s needs and while keeping the schedule and ensuring we all got an opportunity to participate. I was a solo traveller and was included in all activities thanks to a wonderful tour guide called Melanie who partnered with me and taught me how to paddle and kayak and Mark who found me a buddy for the tubing, so I didn’t miss out on anything. I totally recommend this trip for solo travellers as well as couples, pairs and families, even if you have never done this type of thing before. It’s one of the best things I have ever done.
