A great experience, with all the gear provided. Nathan was friendly & helpful, and the hot drink & cookie a welcome treat. It’s a beautiful spot for a paddle, made even more special by several close encounters with inquisitive seals!

We really enjoyed our guided paddle around Coles Bay. Beautiful weather and informative, friendly guide. We had the opportunity to watch two seals lolling in the sun. Overall, the experience will be a special holiday memory. Highly recommended!

We travelled as a family - two adults and two teens - and booked the sunset kayak tour. The two-seater kayaks are safe, stable, and almost water-proof. The paddling is relatively easy but if you are the navigator make sure you set the peddles correctly...More

Hi Louise- thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. Little penguins are something we don't regularly see so you lucked in there! The National Park is truly spectacular from a kayak, a whole new perspective. Happy travels- Susan .

Had an awesome time paddling along the bag with a really informative guide, Simon. Our advice is to go during clear skies and good weather to have an even better experience. And be sure to don weather proof clothing during cold weather
