A Fun-filled/Relaxing Day Trip to Fraser Island! We were welcomed at 7:45am and enjoyed 8hrs of activities…. Kayaking, Tube Riding, Snorkeling, Sea/Lake Swimming, Dune climbing and the joys and relaxation of just being on a boat! We we’re blessed with gorgeous weather and we loved every moment! If you want a fun but also relaxing day out on the water this is it! Book now…. You won’t regret it! Thank you Lloyd, Carolena and Mel making our experience memorable. You were the perfect hosts- friendly, informative, experienced, accommodating and attentive.

We had SUCH an amazing day today! Honestly the crew was amazing, the lunch provided was amazing and the people on my tour were absolutely fantastic. The island was gorgeous and I couldn't recommend the tour enough. I personally did the kayaking, climbing sand dune (or more like crawling up), we saw so many gorgeous crabs, walked along the island and just made so many incredible memories. It's hard to put it in words but I absolutely recommend taking a trip with Tasman Venture. Perfect day.

A fantastic day trip on the remote side of the island away from the usual tourist areas. We kayaked two freshwater creeks Awinya & Bowaraddy both were an easy comfortable paddle with stunning scenery. The tube ride was great fun along the shoreline with Captain Lloyd ensuring every participant was laughing out loud. The stop for snorkelling was gorgeous with an abundance of various colourful fish, sea turtles swimming close, and various beautiful sea life. A climb up the sand dune well worth the stunning views both out to sea and inland to the bush. A Lovely lunch served on board, along with morning & afternoon tea. The crew were exceptional Melanie, Vejay &,Becky. This tour is suitable for all ages and I hope to do it again with the kayaking my personal favourite……along with the feeling of triumph at 63 years old not falling off the tube ride 🤣

We had such a fabulous time on the island experience with Mel, BJ and Milly. They took so much time taking loads of photographs for us, from start to finish they were very accommodating and helpful. They made our whole holiday. Would recommend to people of all ages, young and old! The food on board was delicious, and we loved all the activities, we have recommended this tour to all our friends. Thank you Mel, BJ and Milly!

This trip was recommended to us, and we will be recommending it to all our friends. From the very start, every aspect of the trip was terrific. We were a family of 2 retirees (late 60s and early 70s) with our 8 and 21 year old granddaughters. They catered perfectly for the coeliac in our family and did not hesitate to accept our companion card. Our small group was divided into two, allowing us all to participate in every activity we wanted, without waiting around. Everything was so well organised, the activities were great, we saw turtles, pod of dolphins, a dingo etc and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. If you want a day trip to Fraser Island, do not hesitate for a second - this is definitely the one to book.
