We did the sunset river cruise with Gavin and Rob at the helm. Lovely guys and a really pleasant evening. Couldn’t have done enough for us. The wildlife seemed to appear almost on cue and we had fun spotting a few things on our own....MoreThanks so much for your review Stephanie. We will pass on your comments to Gavin & Rob.

Byron Bay Ballooning

Reviewed By Eli B - Sydney, Australia

Rising on sunrise air to greet the sun is an unforgettable experience. For one hour we floated over the magical hinterland, avidly admiring the lush terrain, green hills and “the green cauldron” with views to Mt warning volcanic Caldera and further north to the coastline as far as the eye could scan.
The staff were superb at ease with their balloons and handling newbies with delicate and praiseworthy care. saw a lot of guys on bender knee doing the proposal bit. call me a softy, but that is nice.

Ocean Shores Country Club

Reviewed By Nicole R - Beerwah, Australia

The setting, atmosphere & service of the bar area/club are fantastic. The restaurant (which is contracted out) is where we were let down. We booked 2 months in advance for a booking of 20 people. Guaranteed the little restaurant was busy but for our first order to come out an hour & half later after ordering and asking where order is is not on! When ordering whole table wasn't put on one order docket so meals came out staggered. Food overall was average, cold or over cooked. Staff in restuarant (all but one who obviously can't work under pressure) were helpful & friendly. Will be back to visit club but will be hesitant to eat in restaurant

Blue Bay Whale Watching

Welcome to Blue Bay Whale Watching, Byron Bay’s most comfortable Whale Watching tours. Come and enjoy an intimate encounter with our majestic Humpback Whales from the comfort of our 8.5m Cougar Cat “Bay Warrior” without getting wet. Whale sightings are guaranteed or get a second trip free (our success rate in 2012 was 100%). Experience the thrill of seeing Humpback Whales breach and witness the curiosity and playfulness of these magnificent giants. We are the only whale watching operator in the Cape Byron Marine Park whose customers step safely onboard our vessel at the Brunswick Heads/ Byron Bay Boat Harbour without getting wet. The “Bay Warrior” was purposely built for comfort and stability. It has a large cabin for those who feel the cold or want to keep their camera gear dry while still observing the whales. Our stable back deck is also sheltered from the sun and the rain which makes for comfortable viewing for all passengers. The “Bay Warrior” is the only whale watching vessel in Byron Bay with a cabin, shelter from the weather and a toilet. We believe in making our customers as comfortable as possible, so you and your friends and family can fully enjoy their Byron Bay whale watching experience. Small group sizes of no more than 12 passengers per trip allow our friendly professional crew to give you the personalized service you’d expect from the charter operator of your choice.

The weather was perfect calm, flat waters and bright blue sky's, we enjoyed numerous whale sightings, mothers and calfs, seemingly playing together, breaching generally showing off, right in front of the boat, some even swam along side
There were only 12 guests on the boat so everyone got the chance to sit upfront and a joy the whale spectacular.
This is our 3rd whale watching trip ( Hervey Bay, Jervus Bay) this was by far the best, my husband is already planning his next trip !

Byron Bay Gyrocopters

Reviewed By Ozy M - Mumbai

We took a scenic gyrocopter ride at Byron Bay and were overwhelmed with the experience. It was just amazing and special thanks to Oli for making it so informative, and special.
Having already walked around Byron Bay's famous lighthouse, we were well acquainted with the landscape - but viewing it from the altitude from the gyrocopter was another experience. Oli also pointed out shipwrecks, schools of fish and jumping dolphins!!! And yes, you even get to drive the gyrocopter on your own as Oli guides you with his experience.
If you are at Byron Bay and want to do something extra, this is a brilliant experience!

The crew at Blue Bay Divers really looked after us and made sure everybody was comfortable with the sea conditions before committing to a particular site.
Their policy of using larger tanks for the first dive to give customers a longer experience is great for the divers, but it means the crew has to work harder during the surface interval. Even with the extra work, they were able to do the little things like taking note of a diver's preferred height of the BCD on the tank. I've never seen anyone else pay that much attention to detail, and it was appreciated.
I look forward to a return visit soon.
