Our group of 12 had an excellent trip with Marcus who was a wealth of information and very reassuring for the nervous nellies among us (namely me). He made sure that the group... read more

Rent some kayaks and take a trip out on the water! Explore the beaches near Bazan Bay and Sidney. Safe, fun, and exhilarating!

My Fiance and I were planning a local getaway for our Anniversary and have always wanted to give kayaking a try. I purchased a local deal voucher for a kayak rental through A Paddle in the Park. The description and fine print of the voucher indicated that they offered tour and rental services to paddlers of all experience levels and... More

Spent nearly four hours exploring the sheltered waters around the islands just north of Sidney. Beautiful scenery and lots of interesting information from our guide, Melissa. Highly recommended.ap

Twelve of us went on Saturday, September 20th for the inner harbour tour with MARCUS. It was a perfect day with calm and warm seas. Marcus quickly got us ready, showed us how to paddle and then off we went around the harbour. He gave us talks on nature and sea life. We had a great time and would highly... More

Our group of 12 had an excellent trip with Marcus who was a wealth of information and very reassuring for the nervous nellies among us (namely me). He made sure that the group stuck together as there were some stronger paddlers that got ahead of the less experienced. We all enjoyed our kayaking experience and would highly recommend Marcus as...

Could not have been any better, with the weather being warm, waters calm and Marcus as our wonderful guide who made our day by taking us out with a group of five others for a four hour tour around the islands off of Sidney. We were planning on a two hour tour but we were so very fortunate to go... More

We had our four nephews aged between 9 and 15 coming to stay and thought it would be fun to take them kayaking. I called this company and spoke to the owner Melissa about availability and what would be required of us. She advised that we would need an adult for each child, parental sign-off and she at that point... More

I made a reservation on-line for a date in July but 24 hr before the day I was notified that my trip was cancelled. I called to rebook my 4 hour tour and was given another date. Great I thought this will be very exciting looking at new things. I arrived at the correct dock at 9:45 for my 10... More

Agree you need to be careful when making the booking, the owner seems disorganised. But it is well worth it just for Marcus. He is an outstanding guide, helpful, knowledgeable, and above all very enthusiastic. He just loves taking people kayaking. Thanks Marcus

We had made a reservation for 12 pm and made sure we got there early (11:30). Soon it was 12:10 and still no one. When we called the number the woman said she had a noon rental. We told her it was us and it was already after 12. She proceeded to tell us she wasn't coming. Way to take... More
