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

Two weeks ago we rent a double kayak at Salty Dog Kayaks and did a two day kayak tour to White Rock, North and South Molli island, with an overnight stay at Shally beach. Beautiful views over the ocean, a stay on a camping with a sky full of stars during the night, shells and coconuts at the beach and... More

Having done the Ocean rafting trip two days earlier, I think we were expecting something similar with Salty Dog. The staff were all really friendly and professional and if you've never been in a kayak before then don't worry as they made sure everyone was really safe. There wasn't much in the way of things to see on the way... More

We just got back from a four day self lead, sea kayaking trip through the Whitsunday Islands. Camping on some of the worlds most beautiful beaches, isolated from the crowds. The trip took a lot of personal planning, but Hayley and Neill from Salty Dog made it very easy with their in depth local knowledge and "can do" business approach.... More

Really well organised tour. They picked us up from our accommodation and drove us to the harbour for us to start our tour. After a briefing (safety & how to use the twin kayaks - they have foot pedals to control the rudder) we set off on our half morning journey. It was fun, informative (the guide stops to do... More

We had a great trip with Salty Dog. Fortunately, it was just the four of us in the group so we could go at our own pace. We had lots of fun and saw a few turtle heads.
