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.

The group was a great group and the guides Amy and Hannah were... 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

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
