What an amazing day! The crew are fabulous and make you feel very safe and welcome. Thanks to the awesome Captain Gary for a great trip over and back, showing us how to drive the boat and all the in between chats. Huge thanks to Tish, Lauren and especially Jade for all of your assistance, checking in on us and looking after us for the day. And a special thanks to owner Lisa for all of your knowledge shared and your passion for your work which shines through. This was a bucket list item to see dugongs in the wild and you all made it so easy. I highly recommend everyone to hop on this day trip adventure!!

What a way to spend a day. This was just absolutely the most amazing day for my family and myself. The crew were wonderful and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience. The food was excellent and plenty for everyone, including my fussy eater. Everything was so simple and staff helped us with a few concerns we had prior to arriving for our trip which made us feel so comfortable with everything. Our family will be back and recommend this trip and company to everyone.

Terrible customer service, bad communication and zero compassion. I had booked for my family and myself (1x family (2 adults + 2 children) + 1extra child) $480, for Dolphin Wild Island Cruises - Eco Marine Safari Cruise and Snorkel -Self-Drive day 2 Oct 2021. On the 1 Oct I received an text from QLD COVID team informing me that I was a casual contact and to get a COVID test, then isolate until a negative test result was received. This obviously meant I could not attend the booking, I then attempted to contact Dolphin Wild Island Cruises via phone, Facebook, Messager, their website and email. No answer. All we wanted to do was change the booking for any other day. Then received an email, with a curt no you will not be able to change days or have a refund because they are a small business, and the office is shut due to COVID staff restrictions. Unacceptable: I can’t afford to lose this amount of money as a result of me doing the right thing by checking in with QR codes and obeying the isolation order. Not answering due to office shut. Why couldn’t they forward the calls to one of their mobile numbers. The same goes for the FB and emails. No EXCUSE. I strongly discourage anyone booking with this outfit, especially any intrastate tourists once boarders are opened. You will not be able to reschedule your booking with this belligerent company

Response from dolphinwildqld, Manager at Dolphin Wild Island Cruises

Unfortunately due to 2 years of COVID lockdowns, with both interstate and international borders closed, as a small family business we can only survive by having cancellation policies. We were given less than 12 hours notice you were unable to attend your cruise. We have been mandated by the govt to cut our cruise numbers heavily with COVID and were unable to refill your places with less than 12 hours notice - if we had more notice we may of been able to refill the places. We had staffed & provisioned for the numbers booked. Tourism knows very well how hard COVID has been on people & we do sympathize with you but we have no other choice to ensure our staff keep their jobs.

Went out with Lisa and her awesome crew on Saturday and simply loved it. The vessel is large, safe and comfortable. The management of the day was comprehensive and effective but conducted in a friendly and engaging manner. The food was fresh, plentiful and satisfying. The bay was a joy. Turtles, dugongs and dolphins (of course), but the humpbacks played hard to get. You get that when dealing with wild and free beasties. We thoroughly recommend this experience to all.
