Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The most beautiful, warm, clear water.
    So many fish it’s like an aquarium in places.
    Great snorkelling opportunities or just wallow in the shallows.
    No crowds at all.
    A treasure.

    A beautiful place to enjoy the sunset. Did a bit of snorkelling and kayaking here, lots of coral, but a bit more exposed so no so many fish.

    Lovely views, great beach, definitely worth a visit. Would be a good place to kayak as the sea is quite calm.

    Loved this walk!! Dean was very informative and ensured that we got the most out of it! Long and exhausting but totally manageable by anyone with a reasonable fitness level. Would recommend it to my friends.

    Peter is and Island lover and you can feel the love of the land on his tour … an excellent option for those with limited mobility who want to see the island and understand its rich history and exciting future.

    We did the Balls Pyramid trip with Dave in 2021 which was amazing. On our 2023 trip we chose the night snorkel tour which was by far the best tour we’ve done on Lord Howe yet. Beautiful sunset dive where the coral colours came to life as the sky turned all shades of pink, then out in the darkness with turtles, moray eels, little reef sharks and all sorts of marine life. Dave keeps an eye on you from the boat and 2 guides take you through different spots in the lagoon. Everyone has a torch and guides have yellow vests which are easy to spot. I have Anxiety Disorder so this combo of snorkelling, water and dark was a big challenge for me but I felt trust in Dave’s knowledge of the lagoon and safe the entire time I was in the water. I would say this is an absolute must do when you visit and unique to any other tours on offer. We’ll be doing it next trip for sure.

    Yet another wonderful Turtle and 2 Spot snorkelling tour under the ever watchful and expert eye of Anthony. We would have seen a good 5-6 turtles from the boat and three beauties while snorkelling, including one that was having a “spa treatment” delivered by the cleaner fish! We have been on many of these tours with in years past but seeing the cleaner fish at work was a first for us.

    Plenty of wonderful fish to see, particularly off the North Beach wreck and it was great to see the coral making a steady recovery.

    We are “of an age” now and particularly appreciate Anthony’s attentive watch for our needs when getting in and out of the boat. We will continue to do this tour in future years as long as we are able and Anthony is conducting them! Thank you as always.

    Just a fabulous tour. We were on the boat with another family with young children and Peter allowed a slightly later start so both our child and the other families child could have a lunchtime nap. Peter was engaging and informative and loved answering questions. We saw turtles, lots of fish an even a small reef shark. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend for families with toddlers as they LOVE the glass bottom boat.
