Dunk Island was worth the visit. Although the resort is uninhabited, I had a really pleasant 3 hours there. I got the 9am water taxi which picked us up again at 12. There is a shower and toilet block and drinking water near the jetty but you need to bring your own food. It had rained a few days earlier, so the track through the bush to Muggy Muggy beach was pretty rough in parts and wouldn't suit anyone who is really unsteady on their feet. The snorkelling on the beach was safe and I did see a baby turquoise clam in some coral which was special, but the rest was rather murky - again due to sand cover from recent storms. The boat trip was quick, comfortable, on time and the guys at Mission Beach Water Taxi were lovely. If I had had more time, I would have taken more of their tours as they were a fantastic bunch. I was travelling on my own. Highly recommended!

Nancy and her team offer 10/10 every time we visit dunk (annually for years!) and always do their best to meet our needs. We travel with multiple kids and a bunch of gear for camping and the team always goes above and beyond in making sure we get across to dunk and back without a hassle. They are flexible, super helpful, knowledgeable about the local area/weather, highly competent and so friendly. Turning up at their Wongaling beach office is like visiting family! We can’t recommend them enough for the dunk trip and other tours they run. Thanks so much Nancy and team!!!

Today Nance and team took us out to Dunk Island via the mad flats. The Captain and Bosun were very helpful, accommodating and full of interesting facts. We enjoyed our trip very much and recommend it to others.
