“Amazing way to spend a Sunday Morning”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Best $25 you'll spend for an hour out on the water!
Mark was great. Friendly service and very accommodating seeing I rang at 8am on a Sunday morning and by 9:30am we were out and on the water. With quick easy instructions by Mark we were out on the water and loved every minute of it. Certainly worth hiring the paddle boards out for an hour or two. Keen to buy my own board now! Thanks for a great Sunday morning.

“Best fun you can have standing up :-)”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Mark is very friendly and helpful.
It was our first time ever on a stand up paddle board but after ten minutes instruction and practical demonstration from Mark we were off. We paddled right around two bays to a beach, had a swim and paddled back. We saw turtles and had the best time.
Ya gota give Mark a call and have a go…

I don't no if this is because mark was a good teacher or if it was because we were quick learners but either way it was good fun. And quite a reasonable price. Definatly give it ago plus you get free pictures to Facebook

“Good if you have nothing else to do”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Thought the $75 for a 2hr lesson was a little bit pricey, but if 1 hr hire is $25, then for 2 hrs it would have been $50, so realistically you are only paying $25 for the lesson. Plus you get and extra hour free to come back another time, so if you use it up then it's pretty good value.

Mark was a good instructor and made us feel very comfortable going out onto the water. I'm pretty sporty so the cones did get boring towards the end but we just paddled out past the cones and that was fun.

The brief history lesson was a great way to learn some stuff about the area.

Overall a fun day out on the water

“Great fun and great value. Interesting operator.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Mark, the very knowledgeable operator of this attraction, made the lesson so easy that my grandmother could learn!
After the lesson and more than 2 hours paddling about the marina, Mark offered us free use the next day. It was fantastic paddling out to the ship wreck, around the island and back to the marina. Lots of turtles.
Would recommend to any one with no SUP experience!
Thank Mark.
