The LARC vehicle could be a lot of fun. But the afternoon trip was dull. Driving into the water and crossing the river was an amazing start, and after reading so many great comments, I was keen to explore more. But the driver simply drove 1km down the sand shoreline and did doughnuts into the water. And then he let... More

Thank you for writing this review msyd. We regret to hear your afternoon cruise experience wasn't the wonderful experience we all know it to be. Our skipper Blake's wife was due to have her baby anytime, so I guess to be fair, he could have been a little distracted on tour. You do say riding in the LARC! was fun!... More

Driver/skipper Blake was 100% Aussie fun. We enjoyed it very much and so did the kids (9-14). Driving into the sea and then over the sand bars nice and sedate on the way out, hearing a bit of interesting history and wildlife facts in between making us laugh. On the way back the kids got wet sitting on the edge,... More
