Absolutely great! I had a great time with my mate snorkelling and kayaking around Double island and Scouts Hat. It's just a prime example of someone who really knows what they are doing, doing what they love. Leaving reviews isn't something that I would normally do but I just had to find the time for this guy. There isn't anything... More

Were able to kayak into the cave at the back of the island too.We had such a great time that we came back two days later to try some snorkeling out at Scouts... More

My husband, daughter and I had a fantastic morning kayaking with Brad. The weather conditions were amazing and Brad was the perfect tour guide. His knowledge of the islands and the marine life is extensive and his professional and easy going manner made our experience one we will definitely repeat again on our future trips to Palm Cove. The tide... More

I had a great morning kayaking with Shannon and a few others. He has a great attitude even though admittedly I was not the greatest kayaker and made sure I was all good and keeping up. Brad was easy to contact and was very helpful and friendly when I had questions about the tour. I would definitely recommend doing the... More

We had a great time on our trip with Brad, who clearly knows the sea conditions and local area very well. The sea become quite choppy overnight and the water visibility less good - Brad advised us of the conditions and was happy for us to cancel but we decided to go ahead and had a fantastic paddle to Scout...

We had done the Sunrise tour last year, so this year we decided to take the " Double Island half day kayaking and snorkeling tour. We had a great adventure. The tour guide was excellent. He explained every part of the tour, the kayaks, the islands, the birds, the fish,the turtles, the coral and the ocean. We were amazed at... More

We were encouraged to wake up early (to make the most of calm conditions), and we're so glad we did! During the sunrise tour we paddled around the entirety of Double Island, stopping to walk along the beach and another time to have juice, fruit and muffins. We then stopped at another location off the island where a fellow customer... More

We went on the sunrise tour and went right around double island, the sunrise was beautiful and the paddle very enjoyable. The kayaks were very stable and easy to paddle to my surprise as I paddle a lot at home and usually end up with a sore back if I don't have support, these were really good. I would recommend...

We did the sunrise kayaking tour and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. He took us all the way around Double Island, stopping on the northern shore for a little while. We even took our dog who had just as much fun as we did! Brad was an excellent tour guide, offering some really interesting facts but not so much that... More

Great service provided by Brad who really knows his stuff. He is at the northern end so don't mix him up with the guys in the middle of the beach who aren't as friendly or professional. We just hired canoes and paddled around Double Island but he also takes tours. It took about an hour an a half and we... More
