Just finished a wonderful 7 day trip around hinchinbrook and the family islands. Dave and Michelle are extremely professional but go about their guiding with a beautifully relaxed manner. Everything is really well organised and everyone was gently taught Dave's well established ways of kayaking and camping. Dave and Michelle have incredible knowledge of the environment they are working in... More

We did the 7 day Hinchinbrook kayaking trip and it was a wonderful way to spend a week. Challenging but not too difficult, magnificent scenery, knowledgeable and friendly guides, and the food was just outstanding. The kayaks are very stable, and the pace and difficulty of the kayaking increases as the week progresses so that by the longer days you... More

Atalanta's so full of energy and enthusiasm it made the whole trip so fun and interactive. There was never a dull moment! She knew every detail of the surroundings - the seas, people, islands, wildlife - and their histories, which made the trip all the more educational and interesting. Did I mention the picnic lunch that Ata prepared for us... More

We went on half day sea kayaking to South Mission Beach. It was fantastic to explore the coast by sea kayaking with freedom to stop where and when we felt like to take a nice pic or just to sit down and enjoy pristine beaches free from people. Great equipment, very helpful and informative crew at Coral Sea Kayaking. Thanks... More

Really good and nice trip. First you think it is a bit expensive but it is really worth it. We had a almost private trip. With one other guy. The instructor tells you a lot of facts about the island and the nature. Snorkelling is really nice. We saw some rays. Also the bush walk is really interesting. The lunch... More

We went out Saturday morning on a lovely sunny day. We were greeted at the meeting point by David & Atalanta who sorted the formalities and got us underway after a quick but concise tutorial. David was very well informed and talked us through some local history & zoology. We saw plenty of turtles & a school of dolphins which... More
