Staff are friendly and easy to approach. Took the sunset session, and it was nothing short of amazing. Great service and quality of equipment. Highly recommended to couples, family and groups on a holiday that want to take a smooth and relaxing pace.

Had the opportunity to do a Half Day trip with Australian Kayaking Adventures. "Freaken Awesome" is what jumps to mind if I have to sum it up. HIGHLY recommended if you are up for a majestic day out on a kayak. The tour guide "Steve" is a great host and understood our needs and expectations for the day and genuinely... More

Had lots of fun with both Steve's. The hotel pickup was a great help and was made to feel welcome and at ease immediately. The trip was informative and the guides were very funny. Highly recommend giving this one a go!

We went on the Stradbroke Island Kayak and Snorkelling tour and had a great time! Our guide was very informative, helpful and funny - definitely added a lot of character to the tour! We loved trying our hands at a fairly new skill and worked up a bit of a sweat kayaking out to the island. This was followed by... More

Loved kayaking around this area. It gives a very different perspective on the Gold Coast. We saw lots of cool birds and had wild dolphins swim right under the kayak. There were spots to stop and play at the waters edge. Very safe: we took our two 14 and 16 yo teenage nephews and twin 7 yo daughters in three... More
