Brenton creates a fantastic day that includes a perfect balance of kayaking, nature walking and sharing his passion and knowledge of the area. The food is delicious and all the more special because it's homemade. A great day that's highly recommend - even with the optional capsizing. 😄

Had a big group but all felt involved! Brent really knows the area, he is really lovelly and knowledgeable about the ecology and history of the area. He had amazing home-made food and cooked fish and mussels he had caught himself. Cockles and fish were delicious! so were Nanas cookies! Thanks

Thank you for such a glowing review. Canoe the Coorong try's to make the tours much more than a kayaking trip but more of a whole Coorong experience. Small numbers mean that we can tailor the experience to the group and make it a really relaxed, informal day on the water. More

This was a terrific day kayaking. Brenton has everything covered, knowledgable about the area, environment, and bush tucker, he is also a patient and amicable guy who loves to make the day enjoyable for all, no matter what your expectations are. Food provided and cooked for us was lovely. Recommend for anyone interested in sampling SA in a special way.

Brenton is passionate about his 'office'. He is keen to pass on his love for the area and his wealth of knowledge.The personal extras of Nana's cakes, his own catch of the day, and his adding the local vegetation to lunch are the bonuses that set this trip above any recent experiences. We are locals(Victor Harbor) and we went with... More
