We spent a great day kayaking Havannah harbour to the end of Moso Island and back. I organised the trip prior to travelling to Vanuatu with Kim via email which was very easy and she was so accommodating making a trip that was custom made to suit us. On the day Kim picked us up from our accommodation and we... More

Had a great time with Kim and Thomas! The kayaks were in great condition and had rudders at the back to make them easier to steer and more stable (which for beginners like us was great!). We were provided with a dry bag so I could take my camera in the kayak and Thomas also took some photos of us... More

Even though the weather was a little overcast & raining, it did not detract from the great experience that we had. Not being very confident I went in the double kayak with my husband & my 2 sisters-in-law tried the double too. The 2 guides, Bernard & Thomas, were very attentive as we were a little unsure, but they were... More

We (me and my partner) recently did an Island Time Kayaking River Kayak Tour. We were picked up from our hotel timely by Australian proprietors, Kim and Russell, and we collected the kayaks from Kim and Russell’s home on the way to the starting point for the tour. Kim is also a florist who grows her own flowers and we... More

I booked the river kayaking experience for Bruce and I. I had limited experience, having only taken up kayaking a couple of months ago on Lake Macquarie. Bruce had quite a lot more experience but wasn't going to stop me. Kim picked us up right on time from our accommodation and proved to be a wealth of information. It was... More
