We had a great trip with Salty Dog. Fortunately, it was just the four of us in the group so we could go at our own pace. We had lots of fun and saw a few turtle heads.

This was my first time kayaking and I have to say I loved it!... Thanks Hayley for a wonderful morning out with you, and for showing us and explaining so much to us about the natural habitat. The snorkelling was fun, and lunch fantastic.

I went on the full day kayak from Shute Harbour as I was really been to be on the water and to see get out to see and walk South Mole Island. It was a good day out, but having a mix of experience and unexperienced kayers means I wish I could have done more paddling. Really nice guide, just... More

Hired a 2 man kayak for 4 hrs. Instructions for emergency procedures were given before take off. Tips on where to go were also handy. We were given a map, water pump, emergency equipment. It was great fun, highly recommended
