Davage picked us up and it was obvious from the start that he was not going to let the rain and moderate winds take away from the experience. He tailored the kayaking so that we found ourselves exploring hidden estuaries and mangrove shelters. He was full of knowledge and obviously very passionate about the area and the ecosystem. He showed... More

Pete was an amazing, friendly and informative guide! This was my first kayak experience and I was made to feel more than capable. We got soaking wet but in water temperatures similar to a bath there is nothing to worry about! We even got to meet a local croc which was just another part of the experience in which Pete... More

My girlfriend and I went on the kayak tour to Snapper Island with Pete while we were staying in the Daintree and it was such a fantastic experience. It was a hot sunny day, perfect for a day on the water. I would recommend this to people with at least a moderate level of fitness though, as it does get... More

I took part in the morning kayaking session during my stay at Cape Tribulation. The guide picked me up in the van and dropped me off after. Stinger suits and life-jackets were available, as well as homemade cake and some juice during the rest on the beach half way through. The guide answered all & any questions I had about... More

We went on the morning tour with Davage over Easter and it was such a great tour. It was so relaxing paddling on the water and hearing some interesting facts about the area. Davage was an awesome guide with the highlight being his demonstration on how to break into a coconut. Would recommend this to anyone of any ability wanting... More

The sunset kayak was the highlight of our entire Nth QLD trip even above snorkelling and diving. This was despite the cloud cover and the lack of wildlife viewing. (I only had a one second view of a turtle's head when it popped up for a breath.) It was an amazing experience and I'd love to do it again. I... More

Thank you Pete for an interesting and stimulating guided kayak tour round Cape Tribulation bay and the mangroves. Loved it particularly the break at sea when Pete opened his cool box and served a drink and home made banana cake. Wow! Book your trip at the bar or reception at the Beach House and they depart from there.

To start the adventure the staff member (Pete) as lovely showed us around and during the kayaking he shared his knowledge and put us is funny but good challenges. The scenario can't be any better. A place that took my breath away. A must do while in Cape Tribulation. ;)

We had an awesome time on the water learning about the jungle/scenery. The guides were really knowledgeable and helpful - especially with the couple that hadn't kayaked before. Very patient and good teachers. Can't recommend this experience enough!

We had a great time on the Kayak tour, and saw many jellyfish, turtles, rays and even a couple dolphins in the distance.
