Started off a interesting experience jamming starting late, then jamming my toe under the moving platform! Ouch! Shark island was not overly kid friendly, we could not hear the commentary on boat outside, the option was not given to us to snorkel or swim as we where told to keep shoes on due to large volumes of glass on the beach. BBQ lunch had large variety but just as last people got served they asked if people wanted seconds before people had finished eating and closed up prior to letting people eat. Would not do again.
