Did the half day tour with my girlfriend and had an excellent time. Tour was well organised and the guides very friendly and chatty. Was a nice way to get out on the water and offered a different experience to the other reef tours, which we loved too. Thanks to the Salty Dog team for a fun experience!

We did the half day kayak from Shute Harbour. We had a wonderful time. The kayaking was easy so it meant a great time was had by all. This is an awesome way to explore the natural beauty of this area. The staff are all friendly, knowledgeable and fun!

I chose to do the half day tour and I thought it to be good value for money. That particular day the weather was a little windy which made the water off shore a good challenge. I did have a small amount of experience in a kayak but never done sea kayaking, I found it to be great fun and... More

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

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
