"Wonderful excursion! Staff very friendly! Bbq on a beautiful private beach! We saw the dolphins !! "

Michelle E.

"Firstly an hour or so along the extraordinary coastline and then onto the beach for a swim and a delicious barbeque, the prawns were the sweetest I have ever tasted. We were lucky to come across a pod or two dolphins and the day flew by ending far too soon. Fantastic day and one ticked off the bucket list."
