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.

My husband and I enjoyed the tour. The tour guys Aaron and Max were very friendy. Before we started, the tour guide Aaron explained to the whole group all the safety and procedures to follow, which is important specially when there are kids and foreigners in the group. The weather was beautiful, we enjoyed kayaking to the Stradbroke Island and... More

This trip is advertised as a 5 hour tour, the tour lasted for three hours with minimal amounts of kayaking. I would suggest taking your own food as the food provided is just very standard muesli bars cookies and cereal. It was still a very pretty tour and the beaches were nice, the snorkelling was mediocre... plenty of fish to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon Stradbroke Island kayak tour. It was excellent and well-worth it! From hotel pick up at the beginning to the very end, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our children are 13 and 11, and they felt a true sense of accomplishment after this "adventure"! Stradbroke Island was lovely -- we saw wallabies, and the beach was absolutely... More

The kayaking and scenery was fantastic, however the tour was only 3 hours, not a half day and the breakfast was small boxes of cereal only, not a continental breakfast. The guide was a little rude and assumed that because we are retired that we would not manage even though we told him we compete in a number of athletic... More

Great kayak tour to South Stradbroke Island, Wavebreak Island and had enough time to snorkel to look for Nemo. Saw a couple of Dolphins from a distance and an Osprey. Overall fun day out with Steve who is very knowledgeable and doesn't mind a bit of banter with the group. Thanks again and will certainly recommend to others who may... More

I had an amazing time on the Sunset Tour! A short and sweet two hour kayak tour, which was the perfect amount of time. The guides were so much fun and definitely made the tour 10 times better. At the halfway point we stopped at a park to see some cool birds and huge bats. On the paddle back there... More

We enjoyed our tour led by Steve. Steve was very informative and took us out over some choppy waters (part of the challenge). You don't need any prior experience but it would be good to have some upper body strength. We have kayaked in several areas. Some kayaks are equipped with back support and some not. These did not so... More
