The tour was only 2 hours and 15 minutes instead of 3 hours. The advertised guided walk on Maria Island did not occur. We ate lunch sitting on rocks trying to balance paper cups of wine as we ate. An email response by the manager after I wrote feedback did not even bother to include the word 'sorry'. In my opinion this is a company trying to make some extra money on the side of their flight training business. Definitely not worth $400.

Fantastic experience, highly recommended! We eventually got to enjoy this after having cancelled twice due to Covid, and it was certainly worth the wait. Lovely lunch on the beach at Maria Island, our pilot was full of information and very friendly and we saw some spectacular views.

Professional, incredible, well organised. I rewarded myself after a few treks in Tasmania, with a flight over the top of them, and the wonderful cruise up the Gordon. The flight was fantastic, pilot professional, and everything a bucket list experience! I can recommend highly, and you also get the premium experience on the Gordon River cruise as well.

We had a wonderful day flying into and out of Melaleuca via two different routes. Very interesting, scenic and worthwhile boat trip on Bathurst Harbour . Lovely lunch provided. Very informative commentary by our pilot and coxswain Liam. Would thoroughly recommend this trip as a way of accessing the SW for a taster:- without needing the skills and gear and applying the toil needed to walk or sail in and out of this remote and special place.
