We picked a really windy day to kayak and the tide was low, but still I can't fault this experience. My daughter and I had the best time on the guided tour. We explored the mangroves and saw an abundance of wildlife. Our guide was fabulous, we had a lot of fun.

We did a tour with Tracy and Erica with our 4 daughters aged 6-12. Despite our complete lack of experience at kayaking we all had a terrific time and agreed it was the highlight of our trip to Noosa. We saw sting rays, herons, pelicans, cormorants, sea eagles, THOUSANDS of soldier crabs, fish, godwits and so much more. Erica and... More

I rang to book into a sunset tour and instead got a one on one guided tour of the Noosa River and mangroves with Tracey, an experienced, knowledgable and personable guide. Tracey and Erica couldn't have been more helpful. The equipment was great and the tailored experience was unexpected but wonderful! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anybody... More

Very professionally run kayaking experience. You have a choice of a number of kayaks to suit your physical stature, fitness, and intention. There are some guided tours available and Noosa river is such a great place to explore. There are many secluded backwaters as well as the really upmarket homes of Noosa Sound to see. Rod also can take you... More

Could not of asked for 2 lovelier ladies. They were very informative, helpful and even picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off again. The sunset tour itself was great. Beautiful wildlife, calm waters, amazing weather. I couldn't fault it even if I wanted to. Great value. Especially compared to some of the other tours going. Thank you... More

The sunset paddle is a great way to spend the afternoon in Noosa. Heading towards home when the sun is setting and the Pelicans are gliding low above the river is spectacular. Erica and Tracey are fantastic guides, and have one of the best jobs in the world. No need to risk dropping your camera in the water as Tracey... More

We cannot recommend this tour again! The Noosa river route via the mangroves and sandbanks was ideal for two fairly inexperienced paddlers like us. Tracey and Erica were both brilliant and we could tell they certainly knew the local area well. They ensured we were comfortable and were quick to provide us with some much appreciated tips so we could... More

This is a review for Noosa Ocean Kayak, owned by Merrick Davis. Unfortunately we had an unpleasant time with our guide Grant who treated myself and my friend Amy in a rude and racist way. We are two asian girls who are slight and small but have sea kayaked before and are fit. We were told in the beginning that... More

We went with our 2 kids aged 6 and 8 and did the 2 hr morning river tour (9-11am). Brilliant way to spend the morning. Our guide Erica was great. My boy loved seeing the stingrays. We loved it so much that we went back and hired the kayaks on our own. Tracey and Erica were really helpful in giving... More
