There is really no way to describe how my boyfriend and I enjoyed our tour! We took the one in the morning with Peter who was very knowledgeable on the reef and cape tribulation. We saw stingrays and sharks (small ones!) which was really cool!! Would definitely do it again the next time I'm back there since we didn't see... More

My Friends and I had the best time with Peter. He is very knowledgeable and gave us individual attention and helped us with what we needed help with. The whole trip was so enjoyable and will definitely share this site with others that are heading up your way. Also would go back for another round in a heartbeat. Thanks again... More

We had an awesome time. Kayaking with Paddletrek was definitely a highlight of our holiday in the area. Pete was such an excellent guide. With our group of three he sized up our individual abilities and spent time with each of us to make sure we were getting the most from the experience. He explained everything really well and then...

tl;dr version: This tour was my favourite excursion during our week in the area. This is quite a long review so you know what sort of experience to expect. Booking was easy. Astrid took our information and payment details over the phone a month or two beforehand. A few days before the trip, we emailed her to arrange a meeting... More

What a great way to spend the morning! Davage, our laid-back, friendly guide, did a marvelous job of leading us along the coast line and into a mangrove forest and back again, pointing out sea turtles, coral features, and local creatures along the way. The tour gently cruises close to the beach and up to mangrove trees at the Daintree... More

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
