The best money spent on a day out!

From the time we made our booking, the team at Coastal Island Safaris were so friendly and attentive. We were contacted promptly via email once booked to confirm the booking.

On the day our guide was on time (actually a bit early) arriving. The drive to the ferry was really good – Greg treats everyone like they are friends of his that he is taking out for the day. Conversation was easy, and it didn’t feel like a sightseeing tour, just a casual chat with a bunch of people. He even managed to find us some wildlife in suburbia BEFORE we got to the ferry! The ferry ride was great – a really cute morning tea setup was had, and we were lucky enough to go and visit the ferry captain too.

The actual time on North Stradbroke was phenomenal. It’s not called a 4WD safari for nothing… and the hand holds in the back of the vehicle definitely get used!

We saw such beautiful vistas, learned lots about the island and its history, the local Quandamooka people, and the wildlife… wow! Whales, dolphins, turtles, kangaroo, bats! Everything was provided for us on the day… you can literally turn up with a camera, a water bottle, and your swimmers. Don't bring food, a book to read, or any other distractions – you have a full day planned with an expert company that will ensure your day is amazing! And worth every single cent paid for, plus more!

What a way to see the island.

The guides are so kind, meal was delish and the views, animals and all! If you are not sure what to do with a day, look no further. Great value! Thanks so much for the awesome time!

Epic Day Out!

Our Guide (Greg) was very informative about the Island and its natural habitat. We saw some amazing sights including marine life, and the occasional Kangaroo & Koala. The BBQ lunch on the beach was a highlight for me. Highly Recommend

Unforgettable tour!

My boyfriend proposed me during the tour. Greg and the team was amazingly helpful to my boyfriend just to make the proposal possible in a last minute notice. Indeed it surprised me. It was a worthy tour. Aside from my boyfriend proposal , other thing that I did enjoyed was the driving through island remote exhilarating 4WD tracks. We had lots of bouncing and laughing which I loved . Well done to our driver 😅. We really had a good laughs there . CIS team are too easy to talk to & informative .They cater us really well! Thank you very much CIS🙏🏼❤️. Rosalyn

We were three friends. We really loved our day! We were with Greg and we appreciate a lot his funny attitude and his knowledge of the island! We saw a lot of animals (dolphins, manta ray, turttles, koalas and kangourous and big big bats ). The out trail with the 4X4 was exciting! We strongly recommended this tour!!!

Greg was amazing and our day magnificent! I would highly recommend this tour! We were treated like favorite family and very well fed with snacks, a delicious barbecued lunch and more snacks! Greg was extremely knowledgeable about the area, flora, and fauna and was an amazing host.

What an amazing day! Greg Emilio Rose and Tanya were awesome. The whole family loved the off road experience and the knowledge of the driver was great. I think it was more the little touches like having boogie boards for the kids to use just helped to make a memorable day. Thanks again Greg
