  • We had a great kayak in the afternoon. I felt I learned how to paddle better and we even got a little kayak surfing in. Once we had gone along the coast Pete produced some cake and juice which was...  more »
  • Excellent tour. The weather was a little rough, but we felt safe at all times and really enjoyed paddling around the headland. The squash and cake was an added bonus!  more »

  • Absolutely recommended for anyone!!! The sea was a little rough, but our guide made sure our 3 kids were safe, happy, included and had a wonderful time. The sites were amazing and will definitely be back! Thank you so much.
  • My wife and I have done this twice; first in Nov 2013 which we enjoyed so much we decided to do it again this trip in Nov 2015. Both times we did the sunset paddle which affords spectacular views of the cape and mount sorrow with the sun low in the sky. Our guides on both occasions were very professional and knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as the plants and animals. I will admit that I am not a good swimmer but at no time did I feel concerned about my safety. I will also say that the two times we have been on this trip is our sole experience of kayaking but had no problem with paddling and control of the two place kayak. On our most recent trip there was a mother and daughter from Adelaide, neither of which had kayaked before and they both chose the solo kayak and had no difficulty whatever quickly appearing to be seasoned paddlers. I would recommend this activity to anyone who likes the idea but might not be confident that they could do it... give it a go, you will not be disappointed. Special thanks to Davage who made this experience so enjoyable and even arranged for ideal sea conditions for us ;-)
