This trip is amazing, sand boarding is super fun and reptile park is wonderful. We were able to see some dolphin from far away, it is hard as you can and #39;t predict where dolphin appears. The boat ride is nice and the weather is good
We had a fantastic day with this tour. Tour guide Dave was very friendly, helpful and informative. Most importantly, the big coach came with free wifi although its only 100MB per phone. Overall every destination was good except disappointed that we didn't catch any dolphins on our cams! Although it was a great weather but saw none. Just too bad but the rest of the venues were good. Lunch on our own at Port Stephen was good too. Again thumbs up for Viator tours!
A busy but fantastic day well worth the money and the coach driver Peter was wonderful a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
At the wildlife park you can feed the kangaroos, emus and take pictures with koalas. Don't see much dolphins but nice boat ride. Seafood at the harbor was very good. This was the first time I did sandboarding and was fun.
This tour was great!! We got to get up close and personal with Koloas, emus, and kangaroos! We loved the dolphins and were informed that 150 dolphins live in the bay year round. The sand dunes were an awesome sight and we had a blast riding down them. Definitely worth it and our tour guide was great
Great trip! Great bus driver! Only needed half an hour more for camel ride at the dunes.
Wonderful. I enjoy every moment of the journey. Highly recommended
The experience was extraordinary and exciting. We saw many dolphins in the crystal clear waters. The sandboarding experience was very fun and exhilarating. I would recommend this tour to others.

Well worth the money!!! It started with a very nice coach to pick us up at the hotel and on the way to our destinations, David the guide/driver, filled us in with valuable knowledge of Australian wildlife. The whole is well organised and no wasted time. It ended with a climax of sandboarding at sand dunes more than 100meters high. Wow, so exciting!!!
Thumbs up for the great tour and guide. Simply awesome! Loved it!
Right from the first moment of pickup up, Ben was a fantastic guide. He kept us well informed during the trip and we learned quite a bit about Australia that we didn't know. The tour was packed full of different activities and we were never bored. Hats off to the tour company and especially Ben for a memorable experience!
This trip was a great day out. The buffet lunch on the ship was amazing - great food and they kept it coming so you could definitely eat as much as you wanted. The dolphins were swimming all around the boat the whole time, unfortunately none of them decided to jump out of the water though. The Wildlife park was really a cute little park - and it was fun petting the koalas.
The Australian Wildlife park was my favorite by far. Unfortunately, our tour was running behind so we only had an hour there. Sand boarding was a lot of fun. Feel free to eat lunch on your own, there are several restaurants and cafes right by the dock. The Dolphin Watching was great, bring your swimsuit as on the way back you can swim just off the boat.
We really enjoyed our day. I wish the time at the Australian Reptile Park was a little longer though. We did get to pet a koala bear and pet and feed kangaroos. The dolphin cruise was exceptional for dolphin viewing, but the food was only mediocre. The sand boarding was just like snow sledding. It looked like fun but we chose not to do it because it was raining. The people who did sand board really enjoyed it. The bus had wifi which was a major plus!!
The tour was amazing! Pick up point was convenient and on schedule. My kids particularly loved sand boarding down the sand dunes. We saw 8-10 dolphins on the cruise, thought the sea was a bit choppy that day. Tour guide was professional. Highly recommended.
A a great option to experience a little bit of what Australia has to offer! Feeding kangaroos, petting koalas, embarking to the dolphin watching lucky to see over 30 dolphins this past November 2014! Also dont forget to bring your swim suit to go in the net at the back of the boat on the way back to shore, it was a great way to end the dolphin adventure! We took the lunch on board, there are other options to eat at marina, however, being able to eat on the ship allowed us to get good seats on the top of ship once we finished our meal. Ending the day with sand boarding with the 4x4 vehicles was really fun!
When you get picked up at hotel or other close locations, it is not your actual tour, but rather a bus to bring you to the main tour company location, once you arrive there, then you will board your tour bus!
This tour was fab, as was our tour guide (Tom). The only recommendation for a 'do differently' is don't choose the 'include lunch' option. It's very tailored to the Asian audience. There's lots of places to get food before getting on the ferry (we were recommended the chippy next to the gift shop)
Fantastic trip, lovely new coach, Mark our tour guide very informative and helpful, really enjoyed the trip, would recommend this tour.
Our ship captain was exceptional, let the Dolphins come go us. The sand boarding was an experience not to be missed, great 4WD to get there then top instruction and away we sent, awesome.
It was great! The buiffet on the boat was really good so I would recommend purchasing it instead of eating in town. The Sandboarding was amazing!!!
The tour is well organized. Our driver cum guide Paul was gentle and knowledgable. We saw Australian Reptile Park on the way. Upon reaching Nelson Bay, we boarded the dolphin cruise and were quite lucky to see a lot of dolphins. Beach Birubi was the last stop where we experienced the sanddunes.
