We originally paid for a straight tour to the footprints only but were upgraded to the sunset tour which we thought was great. But we raced across the mudflats on the hovercraft, with a monologue from the captain that we couldn’t hear as the speakers...More

From start to finish, this family-run experience was an absolute treat! We were collected from our Resort by Roger and driven down to the Broome Port, near which the hovercraft is housed. On our way, we saw an Osprey nest that was built high up...More

We took the tour which cost $136, which included the dino-footprints and coastal cruise. Value for money spent.
