    The beach was covered with litter and not maintained at all. BBQ food was covered with fly and could not eat it. Definitely not worth the time or the money

    Much better than I and #39;ve expected

    It might have been ok at half the price. Food was minimal and took over an hour and a half to cook. There was no drinks provided. The fishing trip was ok but we were catching guppies. Overall the experience was there but not for that price.

    This was a great tour, we very much enjoyed fishing with the guide and his friends. It was a beautiful day and the views were breathtaking. We saw some sea eagles up close, sea otters, and then were dropped off at Monkey beach for a superb BBQ lunch, surrounded by the monkeys and a hungry monitor lizard. The food was great. We had a variety of food: prawns, satay, sausages, chops, chicken, and a simple salad, followed by fresh fruit. The weather was just right for a dip in the ocean (at the beach) too. Overall a very enjoyable day.

    Even though I had to call as we weren't picked up at alotted time all worked out well. We fished with hand lines for about an hour for going onto the beach. Monkey's are very friendly and the bbq lunch was excellent.

    The beach is dirty but aside from that it was a great experience getting the boat over. We stopped to fish which was rather exotic with eagles soaring down nearby! The lunch was nice and the monkeys were fun.

    We were picked up from the hotel and taken to the lobby of another hotel. We were then taken to the beach and dropped off without telling us what to do, except "wait for boat here". After 45mins of waiting i called the tour company and told them what had happened, at which point a boat appeared. We were the only 2(plus 2 yr old daughter) on the tour, and the tour guide (boat driver) was lovely. We spent 30 mins fishing and caught 5 fish. We then went to the beach and relaxed there while a BBQ was prepared for us. The food was plentiful and tasty. The tour took a total of 6 hours and was definitely worth it.

    Monkey beach was great as we were the only 2 on the boat. Was a great private tour. The fishing was great, we didnt have to bait or touch the fish, he did it all. The chef was great, he cooked a great bbq meal, just dont expect anything too flash and drinks are not included. He offered us drinks and then when we got off the boat he gave us a bill, lucky we had money with us. But overall would definitely do again

    This was disgusting, I do not recommend any Aussies who are use to clean beaches to do this trip. The litter on the beach from different tour operators was horrific. The water was dirty, you wouldn't dare swim and there are jellyfish anyway. We were told we couldn't go for a walk in the jungle as it was dangerous and there was no guide. This is an absolute rip off for the money!! I spent my time picking up the rubbish on the beach. The toilet was a hole in the ground with no toilet paper.
