After zip lining this was a great way to get out there and take in the Daintree from an entirely different view point. Very relaxing out on the water, our guide made sure all of us were kept relatively close by. Even stopped for a drink and a biscuit on the water! Definitely worth doing!

This was one of the best activities I was fortunate enough to have time for while traveling in Australia. I signed up for the morning paddle, and could not believe how fast three hours flew by! This was the best way to experience the reef and rainforest. We saw sharks, birds, stingrays. I was able to take in the sights... More

We were visiting Cape Trib at the end of a long, expensive holiday in Australia. It was our last day and wanted to be relaxed but also explore the area, so we booked last minute and it was the perfect relaxed way to spend our final afternoon! The guide was patient and friendly and was doing his best to look... More

My girlfriend and I went out on the sunset tour of Cape Tribulation with Davage in January of 2016. This was one of the most enjoyable things we did in Australia! Davage was knowledgeable and informative. The trip around the Cape really was amazing. We spotted some sharks, rays and an eagle. We had quite an experienced group, so we... More

Well worth doing. We were in a group of 4 and did the sunset tour. very easy paddling and we able to go in groups of two or have our own kayak. Lots of wildlife including turtles and sharks and the guide (Pete I think) was great. Views are brilliant - strongly recommend it.

Seeing the turtles was definitely a highlight for me on this trip! It was also great to enjoy the vistas of beautiful Cape Tribulation from a kayak.

I joined a sunset Paddletrek as part of my 3 day/2 night Jungle Tours adventure. Pete was our guide, and he was fantastic. He was patient when explaining how to kayak, and was incredibly knowledgeable about the local area and marine life around us. We paddled around the bay of Cape Tribulation and saw several types of fish, and a... More

Search for turtles, sting rays, barramundi and the rarely sighted dugong from just above the water. We were lucky enough to see a dugong which really made the trip. It's a peaceful way to see the reef and view the magnificent Daintree from the water. Our guide was really knowledgeable and helpful, making sure everyone was comfortable in their kayak... More
