I went with Peter and he was so nice and professional. Tour was very good. Weather was also excellent.

The best Port Stephens tour we have ever done (and we've done a few)! Dolphins, sand dunes, beautiful bays and lookouts - the perfect balance between lots of things to see and do and a relaxed pace to enjoy them. And Peter is an amazing guide!

My main reason for writing in is to say a massive thank you to our tour guide, Cheeks. He is hilarious, chats with everyone and is genuinely just such a joy to be around... even at 7am. He was amazing, give the man a raise. As for the trip, Port Stephens is beautiful. Sand boarding is an experience you'll never forget (mainly because, being English, you'll never have seen so much sand in your life). My advice for people thinking of going on this trip? Do it! And take a swimming costume and get in the boom net while on the dolphin boat cruise.
