Great day out with great hosts

We chose this tour as we hadn’t previously kayaked before and wanted guides and we were given a great experience from our guides Don and Sam. They were really knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife and made us feel really safe and looked after, super on it with the kayak health and safety and really friendly and chatty. The area was beautiful and we were able to see seals and stingrays and chill on a beautiful beach for lunch. The amount of kayaking was perfect for beginners and was a well run tour, would highly recommend to anyone, thanks so so much to the guides you guys were the best!

Absolutely beautiful!

After a couple of wet days, the sky opened up! It turned out to be the finest, sunniest day, perfect condition for kayaking to all the bays and beaches with ease. Our guide was informative and took us to the places that wow'ed us non-stop! The bays were beautiful, the seals were happily sunbathing, we were happily paddling along! The length of the tour was just right, we didn't end up with sore arms like we expected. My friends and I did one section of inland bush walk a day ago on a separate tour, and this was a totally different perspective on the water. Such a beautiful, most memorable day out indeed! Highly recommend!
