The island is magical, beautiful scenery, calm waters, lot of fish... facilities are supergood, too, and there are plenty of activities to choose from, I regret coming only for a day, it would be really worth staying the night. What was a bit disappointing though is that I felt money matters more than giving the best experience, e.g. the dolphin feeding includes a photo but it turns out to be a really low resolution version that you cannot use for anything basically, but of course for extra money you can buy the high resolution version, or the snorkelling tour is with soooo many people and you have to swim through so quickly that you cannot fully enjoy. I took a lot of tours in Australia and everywhere I felt I was getting more than promised, this was the first time I didn't have this experience. But the island itself is really paradise.
Anyone who wants to snorkel must pay $20 to join a guided tour - think big group of mixed ability in the mainstream part of the wrecks. Independent snorkelling is unfortunately not permitted by the operators of this tour - there is no regulation or other restriction on independent snorkelling. Other tours would be better for experienced snorkellers to explore freely.
you have only 1 fish that you can give to the dolphine and you get your picture only 1 day later, so if you don't sleep there you need to get to a website and see your photo. also, there was people from a cruise so until it was my time to feed the dolphin it took a long timeeee
Really lovely day and well organised. Dolphins amazing to feed but felt a bit ‘shuttled’ in our line by the guide and after waiting so long, it was over in seconds and was very quickly ushered out of the sea to get the next person in. Maybe just our guide I think
Whole experience was good but we did struggle to get to the top of the sand dune for the tobogganing. The slide down the dune was great fun. The driver (BJ) was very informative & a great driver.
