My husband and I both tried kayaking for the first time on the coral sea. The gear and the Kayak were in good condition and the Guide was very helpful. Even thought the snorkelling on the fringe reefs are quite dissappointing in June, the Kayaking on sea was a great experience. Sea was quite rough in the afternoon, but still... More

We booked a day tour based on the tripadvisor reviews of this establishment and the reviews where spot on! We had a superb day out paddling/swimming/snorkeling and walking at the Dunk island! The equipment was very good and our guide Dave was a real pro I would easily say the best guide we had during our trip at Australia (2... More

I can thoroughly recommend the 7 day Coral Sea Kayaking Hinchinbrook Isl trip. We had a wonderful holiday, experiencing beautiful locations with the assistance of experienced guides who were also fabulous cooks! We had headwinds for the first 3 days, followed by tailwinds for the last 4. The guides kept a close on on weather conditions and tailored our trip... More

We had a wonderful day out with Attie paddling to Dunk Island this week. It's hard to narrow it down to just one highlight so we will list a few.... Excellent equipment set us off on the right foot right from the start, the onshore paddle demo gave us the confidence to tackle the waves ( they were pretty small... More

We did the Dunk Island day tour. This was a lovely day - being on the water was a fun way to enjoy the beautiful scenery, and we got to see a ray and some sea turtles! Attie was a great guide, and full of interesting information about the area and the environment. We enjoyed all the time on the... More

We had a great time with coral sea kayaking! Our guide was very informative and she adjusted our trip according to our needs. The views were incredible and we saw rays and dugongs. Water was provided throughout and the lunch was fresh and delicious! We were given snorkelling equipment and went to coconut beach, which was beautiful and deserted. Would... More

Well let's start with the fact there was nothing not to like about this trip! We did the day trip to Dunk Island and went out on an absolutely beautiful morning and Atti was our guide for the day, and she was absolutely brilliant! However, prior to going out we had lessons from David on the beach about how to... More

It is an efficient operation and you have to be prepared to help gear up and launch the kayaks - should be assumed really. Kayaks in good condition and great gear to go with it. Went out on a day trip to Dunk Island and had a fabulous time.

We had a great day with Atty on the full day trip. We enjoy the crossing from Mission Beach to Dunk Island and the information and chat that we had with her. Delicious lunch at the island and nice snorkeling there, also the tour around the small island. Strictly recommend it.
