Unfortunately this tour wasn’t operating when we went to book. The online bookings were still working, so we rocked up at our allocated time and waited. When nobody turned up we called the number and were advised tours aren’t currently operating, sponge was incredibly apologetic and still very helpful in pointing us in the direction of where we could find some local fresh oysters, as well as giving us some history and education on oysters (as best he could given the circumstances) He’s a great bloke and even though we didn’t get to do the whole tour we would still recommend him. You don’t find people like him anymore and given the circumstances we can understand why businesses like this can’t operate.

We had such a great time on Captain Sponges Magical Oyster Tours. Sponge is a fantastic tour host. Very knowledgeable, personable, funny and enthusiastic. He made the tour very enjoyable. Beautiful scenery and the added bonus of beautiful fresh oysters to top it all off. A great experience. I was 32 wks pregnant and although didn’t get to enjoy the oysters myself had a great time out on the water. Very calm. This is also a great experience for families. Thank you very much.
