The most amazing beaches we have ever seen - better than the Bahamas or Hawaii. Craig, our tour guide was informative, humourous and passionate about nature. Seven fun-filled hours surrounded by beauty - the time went by far too quickly. Highly recommended experience. Thank you for making our day Craig!

Well, I was in a crabby and irritable old-man mood the day before this trip. Little did I realize that when Craig picked me up from my accommodation in his 4x4 Landcruiser the next morning , it would unexpectedly unfold into one of the best days I've ever had. On a weekday, when the crowds are absent, we had vast golden seascapes to ourselves as we drove on the wide beaches of Great Sandy National Park. Ospreys, sea eagles, Brahmin Kites and plovers soared all around the ochre hued cliffs and over the blue waters. At Double Island Point , where there is a stunning 1884 lighthouse, we witnessed the magnificent sight of humpback whales on their migration north. There was wild ocean, sky and blazing winter sunshine and not another soul in sight. It felt so surreal, like a Jurrasic Park movie set! Craig takes small groups so you never feel it's cramped. He's an excellent communicator with an impressive knowledge for the natural environment . There's ample time for morning tea, taking pictures of ridiculously instagrammable natural features and even swimming in the pristine waters of Rainbow Beach. My favorite part? The magical driving on those endless expanses of golden sands into the never never of distant horizons that seem to go on forever. If you love nature, learning about the local KABI KABI culture, fauna , flora, and lamingtons with giant lizards at morning tea, then this is a definite thing to do. Needless to say, I felt much better in spirit and body after this day.

Craig's tour is fabulous. We drove along beautiful Teewah Beach for about 50 klms, stopping occasionally to see the Ospreys' nest & watching them hunt for fish, the little Terns huddled together on the beach plus many more sea birds all the while keeping a sharp eye out for the migrating Humpback Whales. Once we arrived at Double Island Point, which Craig has permission to drive right up to the lighthouse, we saw Manta Rays, turtles, dolphins & big schools of fish and the occasional splash from a Humpback Whale. Superb! We then made our way down to the beautiful coloured sands via Paradise Point & Honeymoon Bay for lunch on the beach. This is a very relaxed and beautiful day out from Noosa. Thankyou Craig taking us on your very informative tour.
