We provide a selection of unique amphibious tours aboard our LARC!'s, venturing onto beautiful secluded beaches n the Southern Great Barrier Reef and visiting remote areas of our local National Parks, unreachable by most other modes of transport.

As we make our way up the coastline of Bustard Bay we love to share our extensive knowledge of fascinating historical facts and enhance our passengers awareness of the abundant local wildlife.

" This trip was a fantastic fun and informative day full of history, fun and two great tour guides. Well done to our driver and her commentator. Value for money. Very considerate to everyone and the girls just love thier job which was good to see and hear. My husband and I would recomend this trip to anyone. If we had the chance we would do it again. My husband even tried the sand boarding not bad for a man of 75 he wasn't the only older person to do it either ". - Mexicanoes (Trip Advisor)
