      Not as informative as I would have liked, limited by the weather which can't be helped
      We had a good day out and sadly the weather wasn't great so we were limited, but visited a couple of beaches and saw a turtle in the distance. The staff were friendly but it wasn't what I was expecting as far as native history and knowledge and nothing to be seen through the glass bottom boat as it was all too murky

      Magical cultural walking tour experience
      We took the cultural walking tour, and honestly, I am so happy that this tour exists and that we were able to learn about the Butchulla mob, their culture and ingenuity. On the face of it, it is a simple stroll along the coast, passing trees and plants that we previously paid little attention to, but Travis unlocked and shared so many indigenous pearls of wisdom with us, opening our eyes to the surroundings that we take for granted and pointing out flora and fauna that we hadn't noticed. That was the magic of this tour. We learned about plants and trees used for surprising and clever hunting methods, as well as medicinal plants and ways, and even ate some seasonal bush tucker that we foraged along the way. Travis was engaging, funny, and open, happily answering all of our questions while sharing personal stories and anecdotes. He also patiently allowed time so we could translate for some family members, performed a moving welcome to Country, a cultural song and dance and played the dig. It was beautiful. We are a family of 9 (some Aussie and some international), including a senior, an infant, a toddler and two kids (8 & 12) and everyone enjoyed and felt it was a special experience. Thank you!

      Felt like it didn't represent good value.
      Overall I didn't think this trip represented very good value. I left it thinking I'd be ripped off and that's not what you want from a fun day. They sell it as Turtle Discovery tour with the chance of seeing Turtles, dolphins, plus other wildlife. We saw a few dolphins from distance. This wasn't my main gripe tho as nature can elude you. We got loaded on a boat and travelled for 1 hour to Pelican Sand Bank - didn't really look like the pictures. We got a story about the tides and conditions not suitable for us to dock. Which is fair enough but a good skipper should know the tide times so perhaps we shouldn't of bothered heading out there with the tides predictable. The lunch was a subway 6 inch and if you didn't like it there was biscuits and a chocolate at the end. I was expecting something a bit Less commercial from an eco tour. We were then taken to Round Island which wasn't worth the time. It's not suitable for Snorkelling especially at low tide and quality of the swimming beach is barely worth getting your swimmers on for. We had looked forward to the guide talking us through traditions of the land but the skipper dropped us off 700m from where this was held on the island and dragging our two young kids through sinking sand wasn't practical so we missed it. Overall we spent 3 hours on the boat and 1 on an island which wasn't worth the visit. The best part was the Yidaki song at and speech at the the end. Overall I was unsure what made this tour Eco and wouldn't recommend it with Young kids or if it's low tide.

      Beautiful area, great crew, fine service, worth every penny of it.
      Outstanding value and family friendly. Boat stays in the calmer waters between the shore, Round and Woody Islands, depending on the tides. When the tides are not friendly, it does not hamper a great time on Round Island with the snorkeling, shells to be found, beautiful views and excellent crew. The indigenous guide (from the local Butchulla Clan) delivers a fine presentation on local Aboriginal history and gave cultural demonstrations on music and shared stories and tales. The food is Subway style sandwiches and plenty of fruit. All the fins and extra snorkel gear is provided. I have taken my visitors to Hervey Bay on this cruise several times and it is a spot on bonza of a trip and well worth the price. Highly recommended for families or anyone of any age or ability.

      Indigenous guided walking tour
      Indigenous walking tour was a great little outing. It’s a very easy stroll along a small part of the Esplanade, the beach and Daymans Park. We learnt lots about the local trees, shrubs and flowers, the varied islands visible from the mainland and some history of the Butchulla mob. Jo Jo was a guide and kept us laughing with “dad jokes” as well as educating us. Highly recommend.

      Hervey Bay sunset cruise
      Did this trip on 10/1/23, at the third attempt, cancelled twice once because of bad weather and the second time because the indigenous guide was unavailable. We had the option to be fully refunded but decided to try one last time before leaving for home two days later. Glad we did it was very enjoyable, the food was good and plentiful. The guide was informative and entertaining. It wouldn’t have been the same without the guide. We actually got off on Round Island for a short time which we didn’t expect, so don’t know if they always do that. Our Daughter lives in Hervey bay, so will be back to try one of the day time trips.

      A great yarn
      Because it was too windy to do a boat tour, we did a walk around Hervey Bay with Bruce, a fantastic guide and proud Butchulla man. It was like having a yarn with an old friend that sharing their passion and knowledge with you. It was fascinating and I hope that there’s much more inclusion of Butchulla stories and history - told by Butchulla people - in Hervey Bay/ K’gari tours in the years to come.

      Great way to see the sunset and learn more about the local area
      We thoroughly enjoyed our Twilight Cruise. The highlights were walking around Round Island whilst hearing about the local indigenous food, wildlife, and culture. The drinks and food were good and plentiful and loved the Digeridoo (Yidaki) playing and sunset was great too. The captain and our guide were both excellent hosts and knowledgeable.

      Perfect Morning
      It was a great opportunity to learn more about the aboriginal culture. This was exactly what I was looking for. Dingka Dingka was such a kind man and did a really excellent job. He showed as different kind of plants and told us for what they are usefull. Besides he told us a lot about his culture and tribe. I was deeply touched by the dreamtime stories and the dance and sing performance. Thank you sooo much for this wonderful day. ❤️

      Relaxing, congenial and informative
      The cruise was relaxing, staff friendly and welcoming, food was plentiful and tasty and the welcoming drink as we sailed out of the marina was a great way to start the trip. There was even a choice between dry or sweet champagne which I was very impressed with :) Travis, who was our First Nations guide was warm and humerous and spoke very well, captivating us with his talk on the local area, it's turtles and the history of the didgerdoo. That was particularly interesting, how they are made, the different names for them around the nations, and of course his beautiful playing of it. The weather didn't play the game, the wind had picked up and so we had to sail around the back of the island to calmer waters, which meant we couldn't land and disembark in the regular location. John the skipper managed to get us close to the small island, with maybe a 2 metre, ankle deep walk to the shore and we were given the choice to disembark or stay aboard. Some adventure seekers got off the boat, and explored the small island but most chose to stay aboard as Travis assured us he would do his talk and playing of the didgeridoo on the boat once everyone had reassembled - so that no one missed out. I can imagine that it would have been wonderful to be on the island gathered around Travis as he played the didgeridoo with the sunset behind him. But even still, as with any trip on the water, you can't control the weather and the congenial atmosphere onboard, the staff, the food and the gentle swaying of the boat on the return home with the twinkling lights of Hervey Bay guiding us in, made this a lovely trip that I can highly recommend to anyone visiting this beautiful bay.

      A very special experience
      We got way more than we expected. Our indigenous guide Aaron was excellent he walked on Round Island with us, smoked fresh oysters and we tasted native spinach, he played the didgeridoo. John the skipper was excellent as was Jackie in the office. Our drinks and platters were delicious. Tonight the weather was perfect as was the sunset

      Escape to Paradise
      From booking to disembarking this tour was a joy. It is truly like taking a trip to escape to paradise for a few hours. The boat is gentle and perfect for either large groups or solo travellers. The peace and tranquillity aboard the boat are amazing. I came back feeling renewed. It is difficult to find this level of authenticity and professionalism in one place. Every friend or family member who comes to Hervey Bay will be booked on these tours. It's the first place you should call when you are looking for things to do. The sunsets in Hervey Bay are truly beautiful but aboard the boat, you feel like you are witnessing something really special. Did I mention that the boat has a glass bottom? I found the staff to be very polite and accommodating Highly recommend.

      Terrible, do something else!
      Booking and check in were great Once on the boat... all bad - the skipper was terrible and struggled to park the boat on many occasions, including on return to harbour (first time ever ive seen this on an excursion in 20 years around the world...) The guide wasnt interested in the group and just walked off by himself, didnt involve the group in much if anything he did, didnt interact with the group on the boat except when pulling into the harbour and explaining a didgeredoo... We got to walk around 2 small islands, no fish or turtles, nothing worth snorkelling for (location, water conditions), the atmosphere on the boat was non-existnet. When we boarded they joked no management on boat so they could relax, they indicated a few management subordinate jokes, just sounded like disgruntled employees. While i appreciate you cant predict water conditions, everything is that was wrong is in your control, get s better guide, a decent skipper and someone knowledgable on water conditions and alternate sites. The highlight was crystal clear water on the last island, although no fish or coral and sand that collapsed when you walked on it which we found ammusement in!, and we were lucky enough to see a few dolphins about 300m away from the boat Lunch was a 6" subway sandwhich, and no drinks were offered on board..... Overall $240 wasted and 4 hours of the day lost sitting aimlessly on a boat to look at rocky beachs & walk in circles with no purpose, if you do decide to do it, take shoes you dont mind getting wet or lose your feet!.....

    Thoroughly enjoyed the day. We visited several parts of the bay including Pelican Bank to swim in the beautiful clear water and walk along the white sand. Next we motored to a small reef near Tooliewah (Big Woody) Island where we has the opportunity to snorkel. This was amazing and the crew really made us feel comfortable to get in and explore the reef. Our final stop was Weenandin (Round) Island where we stopped briefly to explore and for our guide, Jo Jo, to perform a traditional welcome to country before we returned to the Milbi to head for home.

    This trip took a few hours and we found every moment enjoyable. While motoring between locations we looked out for sea life, spotting a dugong and some bat fish. All the while Jo Jo shared his knowledge of the local area and stories of 'the dreaming' related to the area. Both our guide Jo Jo, and our pilot Jimbo, were friendly and entertaining, making the experience that much more enjoyable.

    We had a wonderful day on the bay. The sun was shining, the waters calm and warm and the crew terrific. Skipper Will and Arron looked after us beautifully. Unfortunately the turtles were away on holiday but snorkelling on the tip of reef was great fun. A highlight of the tour was Arron sharing some of his culture and history with us and playing the didgeridoo on the beautiful white sands of the island.

    Our family of four took a day trip with Harvey Bay Eco Marine Tours today and had a great time! We saw turtles, dolphins, a sea snake and an eagle ray,, Pelican Banks was absolutely stunning with beautiful white sand and crystal clear waters. The boat crew did a really great and informative welcome to country and provided lots of local knowledge of the history of the original inhabitants of the land. Lunch was tasty and the snorkelling was great too.
    Overall it was a really safe and educational, laid back experience for all ages,, would definitely recommend!

    Took the turtle discovery tour as a family with 2x 10 year olds. Unfortunately the team's indigenous guide had a family emergency and was unable to provide the cultural aspects but they were very proactive in calling early in morning to let us know and offered a number of options including deferment, a cultural walk or refund. This was really appreciated.
    The team on board were great Captain Will, Jimbo and Amber. Will and Jimbo really knew their stuff and were great with kids. The weather wasnt so great so we couldn't travel too far but crew made most of it. Experience is good for young kids and for introducing them to snorkeling. Lunch was good and fruit platter was a hit.
    Sadly we couldn't make the cultural walk the following day but would really recommend these guys when looking for a day tour and something different from usual whale watching trips.

    Even though it was disappointing not to see much of the wildlife, I'd still rate this trip as excellent value due to the knowledge & friendliness of the crew. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side to make sea creatures more visible but it was still a great trip & the chance to stop at Woody Island to swim was great along with the cultural & educational talks. Very relaxing & enjoyable.

    What a great experience. From the welcome to country from Dinka Dinka to the wonderful gentle way he tells his Dreamtime stories. Teaching us how to say a few environmental butchella words, such a gentle soul. The skipper a quiet but hugely knowledgeable person when you get him chatting and love his choice in his happy music, which got us all clapping and a few dancing! The peaceful nature of the tour mixed with the excitement of spotting marine life, we were exceptionally lucky to catch a glimpse of two turtles mating. Not every day is the same which is what make you go back time and time again! Remember Dinka has time off so check he will be on board. The snorkelling is fabulous we were lucky to have a sunny and clear water day, everything fell into place, with the low tide helping us to see through the water and observe the 84 species of coral that live in the bay. If you expect to ride a turtle, stroke a dolphin you need to go to seaworld!’ This tour is real life and real magic 💖

    We booked this tour as it also included Indigenous component . The First Nations employee was ill so we island hopped, snorkelled and walked around an island. We saw sea turtles and a shovel head shark. Waters were clear , the skipper at Jacky were great hosts, the whole experience was wonderful. Jacky went out of her way to organise an Indigenous walking experience for us the following day free of charge . Aaron was an incredibly knowledgeable First Nations local man who shared his knowledge of culture, plants species and the land. We loved it so much and thank him for coming in just for us. We highly recommend this tour centre for down to earth customer service , knowledge and local adventures . Thanks you from the Victorians.Tony & April.xx

    Pelican banks was stunning! The crew were very friendly and shared a great deal of knowledge of the area. Uncle Joe’s Welcome to Country was a great experience. Our family of four (10 year old and 8 year old) really enjoyed the open water snorkeling too. Highly recommend for families with kids old enough to give the snorkeling a try, the calm water was great for beginners. Would definitely recommend 😊

    Yes! Pelican Banks is our own little slice of paradise, we're happy you love it as much as we do. Joe Joe's traditional welcome is from the heart and I can see you felt that. Thank you for joining the tour and creating beautiful memories for your family.
