The tour includes stories of the Riet River and estuary ecology with its diverse plant and bird species the many local shipwrecks ancient cultures, customs and local history marine and mammal interaction in the pools that protect a myriad of tiny sea creatures.  This is a particularly popular choice with family groups and overseas visitors.
