It was my first time kayaking at sea so it was a great experience. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. I thought I put plenty of sunscreen on but I ended up quite burnt - make sure you wear clothing with long sleeves and pants that go to your knees!

Really enjoyed ourselves in the kayak. A nice way to get out and see some of the islands. Our guide Hayley and her son were very helpful and friendly. Nice morning snack.

First sea kayaking experience - our last activity in Airlie beach for Christmas holiday. Had no experience before and felt very tired. But the staff were very friendly and showed us how to make kayak moving faster. We were also lucky to see Dolphins which is very rare in that area.

I booked a full day of kayaking with these guys. The day before I rang them to enquire whether or not the full day is still available. (As per their request). They politely let me know that they would be doing the half day only, but if I really wanted the full day, they would arrange that. They said their... More

We originally booked for a full day kayaking but it was changed to half a day due to lack of other people. I was pleased after doing the half day as it was really windy and really hard work to kayak! The staff were really really friendly but there wasn't much to see. We got to the small Island and... More

We (a couple of 50 in sportive condition) made a 4-days kayak trip. We rented all gear (tent, sleeping bag, stinger suit, snorkeling gear, cooking stove, ... water prove bags for equipment, water bags, sea map, tide table - nothing was forgotten) from salty sea dog and experienced great nature experience. The guys at salty sea dog are very reliable,... More

Great day and great value. We did the half-day tour. Our tour guide Amy was brilliant. She was laid-back and relaxed and very informative. We had time for a snorkel, swim, snacks and tour of the island on our stop at Coral Island. Professional staff!

We took a half day tour with Salty Dog recently and found the staff to be incredibly knowledgeable and friendly - and the scenery is the best in the world! We enjoyed it so much that we decided to hire a double and go out for a few days of camping and kayaking. Neill and Hayley have all the gear... More
