Really enjoyed the morning trip. Plenty of fish with the snorkelling. Good guides with clear instructions. Great introduction to kayaking. You can leave all your dry gear and bags on the bus. Take a rash top, sunscreen and water. A lot of fun.

This tour was wonderful! Our guide/owner Steve was fantastic, his dad jokes & knowledge really added to the experience. We saw dolphins which he promises so we feel it was worth it! I've snorkelled & kayaked a lot, but this was one of my best experiences.

I recently did the Stradbroke Island kayaking tour which left from Marina Parade at Main Beach on a gentle paddle around to the first stop at Wave Break Island. Steve and Sam, the guides, were really helpful for those who hadn't kayaked before and talked the group of around 10 of us how to use the correct technique. The first... More

We had a great day, Steve the guide was very informative, the Kayaking was at a leisurely pace and very enjoyable, we saw a Dolphin with her baby and you could also snorkel with the very colourful fish. I would definitely recommend this tour. Well Done Steve.

We had the loveliest sunset kayak with these guys. Our tour guide Stephen was absolutely brilliant. Very professional and knowledgable about the history and animals of the area. Coming back we were welcomed with a beautiful candle lit picnic table with a cheeky glass of wine to watch the sunset from the beach. Was a perfect ending to a lovely... More

Away from the hustle and bustle of surfers we did the 2 hour sunset kayak as a family. Kids had a ball and guides were excellent. Highly recommend if you are looking for a fun activity with a bit of exercise.
