This day was one of the best I have ever spent, going peacefully along and being in the middle of the wildlife. Just a few of the experiences - drifting quietly on the water to within a few feet of a daydreaming young seal - he watched us curiously as we admired him, totally unconcerned; having a dolphin doing a...

An amazing canoe trip down to where the Murray river meets the sea. Brenton is a great guide with lots of information on the ecology and history of the area. Extremely relaxed atmosphere and Brenton gets the most of the day with lovely snacks, lunch and his grandma's biscuits- yummy! We booked for 9:00 till 3:00pm and Brenton gave us... More

What a fantastic trip. Great weather, fantastic journey, beautiful scenery. Well done, very informative including bush tucker information. And to have playtime with seals and one big dolphin, a perfect day. Very accessible and would be great for anyone of any age.

There is a reason this activity has all 5 star reviews. The canoe trip was the most memorable thing we did during our road trip to South Australia. The guide, Brenton, provided local knowledge and hospitality that was far beyond what we expected. For families considering this trip, we did the 3hr tour with a 4 and 7 year old;... More

We all loved the day, adults and two six-year olds aswell. Brenton is an excellent guide and the tour has something for everyone, kayaking in the beautiful scenery, interesting facts about the ecology and the area, trying bush tucker, playing in the dunes, godo food and Nanas biscuits. Highly recommended!

Simply love the tour! It's such a great day out canoeing in the calm waters, taking in all the sights of nature and wildlife. Brenton is a brilliant guide to have and my fiancé and I have no canoeing experience. Brenton is so knowledgeable on the surroundings, nature, wildlife and history. Lunch was fantastic with great cookies/cakes and coffee all... More

What a wonderful experience. Brenton is so passionate and knowledgeable, that you can't help but have a great time, even if there are 25 knot winds blowing. If visiting the Fleurieu, one of these trips is a must. The picnic and Nanna's biscuits really top the day off.

A perfect day in a kayak on the Coorong in SA, in a small group guided by an affable and professional young man who really knows his stuff. Some people have a talent for communicating (without being long-winded, overbearing or boring you rigid), and Brenton has this wonderful talent in spades. The day featured spectacular scenery, and included a delicious... More

Yesterday we joined Brenton for a great day on the Coorong. Brenton's knowledge and enthusiasm makes for an enjoyable time. We learnt about bush tucker, cockles and the Murray/Coorong system. More pleasing was the lack of aches today.
