Wow is the only word I can use to describe this tour!! It was absolutely amazing with breathtaking views and a knowledgable friendly guide. Dwight made an already phenomenal experience that much better with his charming personality and massive knowledge base!! It was so worthwhile and I really would love to go back and do it again!!

Paddletrek was so fun and such an amazing way to view the Cape. We were picked up from our accommodation at the Exotic Fruit Farm by Dwight, who was our guide for the day. We went on a perfectly sunny day in August and the conditions were terrific. Dwight was so knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history... More

Being able to see the rainforest from the water and have Pete share all of his intimate knowledge of the area was priceless. We a group of just 3 and it was very personal. My partner was a little nervous of sea-kayaking, but Pete soon put her at ease. A very good experience, highly recommended.

We had wet and less than ideal conditions - but a wonderful experience! Dwight was an amazing guide, he had so much knowledge and made me (a first time kayaker) feel completely safe. He tailored what we did to the conditions and made sure we could stay out as long as possible. I'm very keen now to do this tour... More

The weather was iffy for the morning paddle but our guide Dwight advised giving it a go and we absolutely loved it! Even overcast with rain it was one of the loveliest tourist experiences you could hope for. We were in expert hands with Dwight and had some great stories to hear and tell. Homemade chocolate cake was a fantastic... More

I was hesitant at first to do the kayaking especially since it had been storming all morning. We had one of the roughest conditions to go out in and it was the BEST TIME! I give this the highest recommendation if you are after something adventurous. The surfing was so much fun!

Spent a morning on the water with Pete the Kiwi. Our party of three, a couple from Hong Kong and another family of four (in double seated kayaks) from UK. Our guide was Pete, very knowledgeable, very competent on the water and a likeable Kiwi now resident in Queensland. After some introductory oarsmanship we headed off towards the coral and... More

If you want to see Cape Tribulation from a different angle, learn about its history and geography, while having the best time of your trip, you can't go wrong with PaddleTrek. Pete was an extremely friendly and helpful guide, very confident in sea kayaking and seemed to know a lot about everything around us. He made conversation with everyone in... More

This was the highlight of ourtrip to Port Douglas which was already filled with exciting activities. Caught one fish, but that didn't matter as we spent the day sailing and paddling along side the amazing Daintree and over the mysterious sea. It revealed one mystery for us - a humpback whale swam past about 20m from us, and then disappeared... More
