the Dolph Feeding program will be an unforgettable memory for me forever. there are many people and you can feed the dolphins only for a couple minutes but it is still very worth it and the day on the island was just as amazing. after you feed the dolphins you can also watch them from the pier in the shallow water and it was so amazing

Loved this day out! The crew were amazing, we had perfect weather - so many animal sightings; the local dolphin pod, the turtles, star fish, and loads of tropical fish while snorkelling. Fully recommend this day trip, it was one of the most enjoyable things we did on our Australia trip!

A great day from start to finish. My teenagers highlight of our trip. Lunch was lovely, snorkeling was great, boat itself nice. Friendly staff.

Eclectic interesting activities. First rate service due to an attentive and engaging crew and an impressive boat.

Good food good service very enjoy the best thing is pick up from Gold Coast very convenient
