Description

They started Straddie Kingfisher Tours over 14 years ago because Dave and his wife Margaret have such a passion for the Island. They just wanted to show this Island Paradise to the World in an eco friendly, informative and sustainable way. Being part of the Island community since 1966 they can offer you that local knowledge and give you that personal touch.
