Perfect trip! Did the half day but regretted not having done a multi day trip. Our guide Amy was incredible! Ask for her when you book.

We were quite surprised to see how much sea life, coral and the beautiful scenery there was so close to Shute Harbour. Even our 13 year old... More

Went on a 6 day trip with my husband. Staff, equipment, food and organisation were amazing. Our guide Amy was outstanding with her cooking, cups of tea, positivity- nothing was too much trouble. Places we camped were great as well and a fantastic way to see the Whitsundays. Just be prepared to be flexible- windy conditions meant we didn't do... More

I had a great time doing the half-day kayaking trip with Salty Dog. Effort was made to include everyone and cater to all abilities and interests, which was great. Fun route and just the right amount of time on the water. Guides seemed friendly and knowledgeable, and I felt safe and confident about what I was doing under their guidance... More

This was a fantastic trip you get picked up and dropped off at your accommodation which means it easy to do. The kayaks are perfect, they have single kayaks and double kayaks you can choose which one you want but it also depends on your ability. We kayaked for about an hour and a half to an island where we... More

We made the half day tour to one of the whitsunday islands. Before departing we got instructions and had some time to practice for those who haven't been kayaking before. On the way we looked for turtles and the bird life as we were crossing a lot of bays etc. The crew was friendly and helpful. On the island we... More
