A friend and I took this trip. Particular ly not being great swimmers were a bt nervous. But the staff were very helpful. And the activities were full on throughout and you get to do it at your own pace and will. p.s - If you dont have an underwater camera, i highly recommend hire it from them. It is worth it.

There were three adults and one child in our party on Tuesday 6 January 2015 for the afternoon trip. It was an excellent day, unfortunately we only saw two Dolphins but overall the experience was enjoyed by all of us. The crew were very professional and friendly and we would recommend the experience of the day being out in the Bay.

Thanks for a wonderful time looking at our beautiful bay. The leader of our trip was excellent, giving great explanations on how to use the equipment and thoughtfully supporting all the people in the group to make sure they were able to keep up and enjoy the experience. We did get to see the weedy sea dragon which I would not have been able to spot snorkelling on my own and also saw a lot of other wonderful marine life. I loved it. Very professional and relaxed. Thanks heaps. Christine
