Visited in difficult weather conditions but the guides were great and nearly killed themselves to get us all out to sea. Unfortunately no dolphins that day but it was still an unforgettable experience. The guides looked after the kids too, much needed help thanks!

I did the 3hr Dolphin tour with my 12 yo daughter on our recent trip to Byron Bay & we had a great time. The tour was fun, well organised & the guides were both entertaining + informative. We did a morning tour and whilst it was hard work getting out through the waves initially it was still fun &... More

It was a fun and wet experience with the instructors . We saw seven dolphins up close and they swam close to the kayaks. A great day trip!

We were booked in to do the 8.30am kayak on our last day in Byron. After checking out of our hotel extra early, we were waiting to get picked up for 20 mins before I called to check where the driver was. I was told that the tour had been cancelled and they had forgotten to tell me. I appreciate... More

Hi Tom, Thanks for your review. All reviews are very helpful to us as we can improve our tours and service for customers. As we mentioned in our earlier conversation, the tour you booked onto was fully booked and unfortunately our cancellation message didn't reach you. With 32 customers to notify sometimes things do become quiet hectic with weather cancellations.... More

This trip was absolutely amazing! We got to see a variety of wildlife up close and personal. We saw a total of five dolphins (one actually came up right next to our kayak), blue jellyfish, and a humpback whale. The day we went was pretty perfect, and there was a beautiful rainbow over the lighthouse. The toughest part of kayaking... More

The team is very confident you will see Dolphins & possibly more. We were close to some and it is a real buzz to see them nearby. They have their routine well organized so you get what they promise. They make it fun whilst looking after you well and teaching you a few things about kayaking. It's a good workout... More

This is a good trip to go out and see the dolphins in the bay. Our guides were good fun and explained everything clearly. We didn't see a whale or turtle but a small pod of dolphins came by and swam right under our kayaks. I would have liked a bit longer out there, but overall a really good trip... More

Last Wednesday my friend and I went on the kayak tour departing in the morning. My overall experience was AMAZING. As I am a big fan of the sea and all it creatures this was the perfect tour for me. You start off with instructions how to paddle and how to kayak through the shore so it was not a... More

Sorry, I cannot recommend these guys. Was in a boat with one of the guides. Coming back to the shore, he advised me to hand him over my sunglasses, he would stow them away safely. Instead he just plugged them in his swimmers pocket, which I couldn't see sitting in front of him. We landed dry and safe on the... More

Had a great day ... the whales were so close I wondered what would happen if they tipped us out of kayaks ...not worried about being in the sea ... just how I would get back onto kayak !! Loads of fun .... we missed morning tea because of all the activity .. but I would rather watch whales up... More
