An awesome 3 hrs kayaking. The guides Leith and Jarad were friendly, helpful and full of local knowledge and history. Would highly recommend it, got to see Stingrays swimming around the ocean, and morning tea on the beach was an unexpected bonus. Carl and Amanda

This experience is well worth the time and expense. Our guide was informative without being overbearing and the scenery was simply breathtaking. I had never been in a sea kayak before but picked it up quickly with a few pointers from our guide. The day was a bit windy and choppy but we all never felt cold or unsafe. It... More

With two lovely staff members from Frecinet Adventures I spent the afternoon on a Kayak. Both tour guides brought us from Coles Bay to the red granit coast of the national park. A brief stop with hot coffee and cookies while witnessing a sea eagle diving for its prey. Some people on the tour saw stingrays and in the next... More

We enjoyed the sea kayak adventure around Coles Bay. The kayaks were in good condition and the guides were very knowledgeable. We only wished that there was a little more to see - once you are in the water the scenery all looks fairly similar and paddling around does get a bit boring once the novelty of kayaking wears off....

We had a wonderful experience sea kayaking at Coles Bay. Staff were excellent and very knowledgeable about the local area. Seeing a seal during our paddle was an added bonus!

It is quite a hike to get there up many steps so make sure you have some good walking shoes but it's worth the hike because it is absolutely beautiful. Loved it and loved the drive from Hobart so much to see along the way.

This is my second time doing this trip, it was as fantastic as the first time I did it 7 years ago. Weather was perfect! Strongly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. I could more than happily do a multi day trip next time I'm there. Thanks so much! Tony & Steve.

This has to be something to put on your bucket lost! After touring Australia and seeing Australia Zoo and the Sydney Opera House and The Sydney Harbour bridge, this by far was the best thing we did all holiday! You get to see the beautiful Coles Bay and The Hazards up close and personal on a two man Kayak with... More

What a fabulous experience. Nathan our guide made our kayak adventure so much fun and knowledgeable and his Aunty (who started the Freycinet Marine Farm and owner fo Shucker's Cottages) taught us about history of Oysters in the region while shucking our Oysters that we'd plucked straight from the sea... Unforgettable and Delicious!
