Really good fun - saw quite a few dolphins although they didn't quite jump out of the water as far as the pics suggested and were certainly difficult to photograph as they weren't too close to the boat, despite the driver's best efforts to go towards them, they kept swimming away!
The sandboarding afterwards was really good fun - the hardest part was walking back up the steep sand dunes!
We had paid for lunch on this trip but we weren't given lunch vouchers. I queried this and the lady with the clipboard when boarding the coach said we weren't down to have lunch. I checked my email, confirmed I was right, and complained. They were very quick to apologise and admit their mistake and refunded us the correct amount for two lunches, in pounds sterling.Reviewed by: Kirk B, September 2013

While nice to get out of Sydney, this tour was just ok for me. The reptile park was nice, but I've been to better parks in Australia. I did get to pet a Koala, but I've held one at the Australia Zoo. Port Stephens is ok, the lunch was overpriced - I was starving by the time I got there. The food was mediocre. The boat was pretty boring and crowded, and only one dolphin tale was spotted. The best part of the day was sandboarding, that was really fun! It wasn't difficult for me to walk up the sand to slide down, but I'm in good shape - but others found it very difficult and got out of breathe. There is a ton of driving in the bus - about 6 hours total for the day. Not really worth it for Reptile Park and Port Stephens, to me, anyway. Then again, I do visit Hawaii regularly and have swam with wild spinner dolphins, so to others this tour may be much nicer. The guide was great, and gave a lot of interesting information.Reviewed by: Bridget F, October 2013
Check when booking, that they will take you back to where they collected you from as I was told on the way back that they would only drop me back to central Sydney and I would have to make my own way back to Coogee. Very annoying.
The day trip was good, except we were only given 50 minutes at the reptile park,
