This tour was exceptional compared to tours I have taken with other companies. The driver was helpful, professiona, and curtious while the tour bus was spacious and clean. There was a lot to see and do on this tour, which made for a fun, but full day. I found it was an exceptional value for what all you got for your money and would highly recommend this trip to others!

A very pleasant and nicely paced day trip. The dolphins were there, the sand dunes were there. Lovely!
Great fun and the weather was awesome!
My partner and I had a fantastic time with the 4WD experience. To top it up we had sand boarding, which was the highlight of our trip. I wish we could sand board the whole day -- that's how much we enjoyed it. The only downer of the trip was the reptile park tour. We did not have any tour guide to walk us around and to give us an educational tour. Overall it was fun. Is there any separate 4WD only trip? We really did enjoy the sand boarding. By the way, Port Stephens is a very nice place. I love it everytime we visit the place!
We visited the Reptile Park on our way to Port Stephens and got to touch a koala and feed wallabies and kangaroos. It was a lot of fun. Don't forget to take suntan lotion for the dolphin cruise. But possibly the funnest part of the trip is at the end as you get to sandboard in large dunes. I laughed, don't know if of anxiety or excitement, all the way down the dunes. You've got to try this one! Since we went in winter time, the sand felt nice and cool to the touch and we could take off our shoes. Remember it will be the opposite and rather hot in summer time - just something to consider.
Beautiful port and really can spot the Dolphins! Though they are abit far so you need a long lens for photography. Got a chance to touch koala and kangaroo! Sand boarding is tiring because of the climb each time but the view is great for photos :) worth for the price and good way to spend a day~
Our tour day was unfortunately a rather grey and rainy day, with strong winds that made the dolphin watching excursion not as enjoyable as it could have been. We did see a few, but it was a choppy ride to get there! Our favourite part was by far the Reptile Zoo, which is kind of misleading by name. We absolutely loved being able to feed the kangaroos! Incredibly, this also includes being able to pet and take photos with koalas. Such a treat.
The kids had a blast on the 4WD excursion and loved sand surfing.
Be sure to have your phone charged - there is free wifi on the bus, and you spend at least 4 hours on it.
Overall, a great trip.
This tour was great! I recommend getting a spot on the rail on the bow before all the spots are gone. The dolphins love to swim in front of the boat as its moving which makes for a great sight. Also, the buffet was very crowded, I would suggest to just go without the buffet option.
An enjoyable but rather long day. The included lunch was not that good and the organisation could have been better. We certainly saw the dolphins from the top deck of the boat but were a little disappointed that the commentary but the crew could not be heard on the open top deck.
It was a wonderful trip for my family. They will remember it for long time. Specially sliding down the sand dunes was terrific. All of the excitement in a day.
It was a lot of fun going down the sand dooms and watching dolphins.
Excellent trip. reptile park not that great. Buffet lunch average. sand boarding and dolphin watch were definitely the highlights. Overall excellent day out packed with activity. Real value for money!
