The exact meeting point is meeting point B at the Northern End - near the roundabout under the white umbrellas. If parking a car, the car park is located near the other marina building (Southern End). Be careful not to mix up which marina building. Head to Google maps if you get into trouble and search for us on there! Remember meeting Point B at the Northern End! We can pick up and drop off to Daydream Island if required.
