We had a really great trip to the remote areas of the Fraser Island. The boat itself is really big , it was not fully booked and we really enjoyed our space on the boat. In total we made 3 stops and we made 2 nice kajak tours, 1 snorkling trip, 1 stand up paddle ride and a floating cushion... More

The staff are excellent on the tour and give a great commentary about the whales. At this time of year the mothers and their calves are feeding up in preparation for their trip south. We got to see 3 mothers and their babies. The calves were very active and gave us plenty of action. We had plenty of time to... More

Initially, we were thinking of going through cool dingo tours. We were advised they would provide more destinations in the one day tour. After speaking with a local, he explained to us that sometimes doing the road less travelled offers a greater experience. He was 100% right. The crew was fantastic the food was amazing, the tour was a total... More

We had never been to this side of the island before and found it absolutely magnificent. Remote, deserted beaches, lovely and refreshing to sit in the clear water and see stingrays and little fish, great place to relax and chill out, and do as much or as little as you like. We tried kayaking and tubing for the first time,... More

I have been to 39 countries and done over a hundred day trips and this is the best one I have ever done. The captain, staff and boat are amazing. We got to snorkel with turtles and sting rays but even if we never saw them the tour would still be fantastic! There is so much to see and do... More

From the moment we were picked up at our B&B to the end of the day when we were dropped home, the crew of Tasman made sure we had the best Fraser Island experience.

Hi Kathryn, we are lucky to be able to visit Wathumba, Awinya and Bowarrady creek with ease. The location of these sites does make it difficult for visitors travelling by 4WD, making it's remoteness that much more special. Thank you for your review of your Remote Fraser Island tour, we hope you enjoy the remainder of your holidays. More
