Based at Airlie Beach, Salty Dog offers various kayaking experiences. We chose one of the 6-day kayak/camp tours. The whole week was incredibly well organised. Salty Dog advised us on what clothing and equipment to take, they supply kayaks,camping equipment, and all snorkelling gear. All of the gear was in tip top condition. The food was unbelievably good, I managed... More

We were a party of three and joined by a Japanese girl to make up a four on the half day tour. After a number of very bad weather days this tour ran with the wind just within tolerance and ended in pouring rain. It was tough going out to the coral island against the wind and we sat down... More

Great morning out. Chose the half day tour which was great for a beginner like me. Friendly instructors that made it simple to learn. Great experience.

We were picked up from our accommodation & taken to the kayaks which was great as it takes all the hassle out of getting there & back. The instructions were given and off we went. It was no fault of the company obviously, but we were fighting against quite strong waves and we felt it was quite a work out... More

I hired a two man kayak for 4 hours. I like these kayaks as they have foot paddles which make turning left & right so much easier. 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 & extra paddle. It was great fun,... More

We went on a half day tour. The kajaking part was good, got a snack on the island and a bit of time to snorkel. Snorkelling wasn't great as they don't provide the fins (because a lot of people weren't carefull and damaged the corals) so it made the snorkelling exausting (for the legs but especially for the arms after...

Had an awesome morning kayaking with a great group and lovely owner Hayley! So lovely being out in the beautiful water. Hayley was really informative, we were beginners and there is no pressure to go fast. Snorkelling was fun, stinger suits were provided. We saw turtles. Awesome way to start the day organised by a really lovely family business. Thanks,... More

I had a great time on my half-day tour, after about 50 minutes of kayaking we arrived at a small beach, did some snorkelling and saw a lot. After that we had a bit if lunch (provided) and headed back to the harbour. I only wish I'd been able to do the full day, but they weren't being run when... More
