In the morning you will wake early, ready to embark on the adventure ahead, complimentary pancakes and tea or coffee for Dingos guests, and you are set to go.
With your itinerary and map on board you will head off without a care in the world, to experience all the beauty that the amazing sand Island has to offer. And there is so much to see and explore!

Enjoy the views from Indian Head and the awesomeness of Champagne Pool!
