There was the satisfaction of actually kayaking 8 km in the ocean, rather than passively sitting in another tourist bus!; there was the mesmerising beauty of pristine uninhabited Snapper Island and the time to explore without a crowd ; there were the turtles and sting rays and butterflies, and beaches full of coral, shells and driftwood; there was Pete's reassuring...

It was raining/cloudy the day we went kayaking, so no real sunset for us (it did clear up just as our paddle started, so still good weather!), but still a really nice paddle! It was nice and chilled, plenty of time to just sit in your kayak and enjoy the exquisite surroundings. Got delicious chocolate cake and cordial, and some... More

Had a great time paddling in one of the most beautiful places in the world with Paddletrek. Definitely a highlight of our trip! The wind has kind of strong from the SE, which made for relaxing paddling on the Northern side while we check out some turtles, but also gave us a challenge to get around the headland. Challenge on... More

First and foremost, our kayak guide was brilliant. His name escapes me but he was an ex-builder whose knowledge of the Daintree and surrounding areas was impeccable. I learnt so much, and he went far beyond what I expected from a morning of kayaking. Secondly, the kayaking itself is brilliant. The waves were choppy and we even got to 'surf'... More

On the 3rd of July 2015 we travelled from Port Douglas to Cape Tribulation where we had booked a day out with Paddletrek. What a wonderful day my wife, late teen kids and myself had. The scenery of the where The Daintree meets the beach was picture perfect and the calm waters of the bay made for a perfect start... More

I was reassured by the tour desk ladies ... "Pete will look after you! " they said. They were right. Should I mention the sea eagle carrying a snake, the sea turtles and the humpback whales now or at the end of the review? The morning ahead was deftly depicted by our guide using the paddle end to carve a... More

Pete was superb. I have done quite a lot of kayaking and my partner has started recently, but he taught us both loads and put us through our paces when we were ready! Really enjoying catching the waves. Beautiful setting at Cape trip beach, worth going to see the view of the beach/rainforest from the sea. Bonus cake at sunset... More

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...
