    Hello GoPlaces82183 It's wonderful to hear you found the full day tour informative, fun and exciting. Our tour guide Sammy keeps the commentary very interesting with her researching of history and her amazing story telling skills. Sammy and skipper Macka make the perfect duo and keep an eagle eye out for spotting birdlife, marine life and wildlife. Often, the dolphins ride beside the LARC! as the LARC! cruises the waterways of Bustard Bay. Our lunches are prepared fresh daily by the very popular 1770 Marina Cafe. Sandboarding is a one of the highlights of this tour so everyone is always excited about trying it out. It's such a fun way to end the tour for the day. We always try to accomodate an ample allocation of time for guests on tour so they have plenty of time to experience everything throughout the tour schedule on the day. Some guests like more time at the Lighthouse, where as others may like more time sandboarding. Overall, we always try to accomodate all our guests the best we can on the day. Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review and we love hearing you had such a wonderful day. Kind Regards The LARC! Team

    This was well-organised, well-paced and Sam and Macka provided a lot of interesting history and commentary. I liked everything about this day – the LARC, the lighthouse tour, the sandboarding – all lovely. Thanks so much to the team for looking after us! Highly recommended!

    Hello Sherryinabottle :) Wonderful to hear you liked everything about the full day tour experience. We try very hard at all times to keep the full day tour well paced so our guests have enough time to enjoy everything, so they take away a memorable experience from their day. Skipper Macka and tour guide Sammy do an amazing job looking after each of our guests. Thank you for highly recommending our tour and we do hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay while visiting the Town of 1770. Kind Regards The LARC! Team

    Hi Selina P, Some say its the best view you will ever have from a boat! The views from Bustard Head are like no other, and we are very fortunate to be able to share it with our guests, like yourself. It's great to hear that you had the experience of seeing some of the awesome wildlife we have on offer, including our amazing skipper and tour guide! It's always a surprise as to what wildlife will be on tour each day so we can always promise a unique experience each time! And who better to show you these animals than our very own Macka and Sammy! Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review, we look forward to seeing you again! Kind Regards, The LARC! Team
