We decided to try a day trip kayaking instead of a cruise around the Whitsunday Islands, and could not be more delighted with our choice. Simon, our guide, was great, and made sure that we were all able to keep up. We did three trips, with a walk and lunch on the first island stop, then a snorkel and afternoon... More

Spent a beautiful morning kayaking with friends and guide SImon. Had all the assistance we required to get going in our kayaks and a great tour of the area from SImon. We were very well looked after and would definitely recommend it! Transfers and morning tea were included, as well as all snorkel gear! Thanks to Hayley, Simon and the... More

Nice half day trip from Shute Harbor, well organized. While paddling you are able to see the corals with such clear water, and the dolphins just swim next to you. The island we stopped at was just perfect, with amazingly clear and blue water. Snorkeling was not excellent, not much coral and fishes. After paddling, the cheese and fruit snack... More

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!

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
