Having had a bit of experience in paddling sit on top kayaks, but not wanting to take our own boats with us on this trip, and wanting to know more about an area we had never visited, my husband and I signed up for a half day trip with Phil of Bay and Beyond, hoping for the right weather for...

Phil and Carolyn are the proprietors. Phil goes beyond the extra mile in providing a friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable sea kayaking experience, especially for the novice kayaker. Time is taken to ensure all safety aspects are covered including a map of the area (for us this was Lake Durras) to take for reference by the kayakers during their adventure.... More

We went on a 3 hour guided tour of Durras lake as my birthday treat. Phil was incredibly patient with us as we were novices in a kayak and not very good at navigating! He was also great with our 2 boys (age 7 and 10) and judged well how to keep up their enthusiasm etc. I learnt a lot... More

I had the most enjoyable few hours kayaking around Lake Durras today. I had originally planned to do this tour in a few days time but something came up and I decided to change my plans. Phil and Carolyn were more than accommodating in fitting me in last minute. They are both very friendly and knowledgeable with regards to kayaking... More

Agree with all the other comments. We went for a family sea trip and found Phil to be professional and friendly. He would be my definition of the ideal guide - not overbearing, informative, easy going yet professional. If you're a family of novices like us with a range of ages keen to try something active then we recommend Phil... More

Phil is a fantastic, skilled, friendly and highly knowledgable instructor who can cater for paddlers of all types - from first timers to recreational paddlers like me, and beyond. He made the time to take us out and offered gentle and insightful instruction on paddling technique - without being overbearing or taking away from our experience on the water. I've... More

A wonderful experience in an incredibly friendly atmosphere throughout. We did the Ocean tour on the 8th of February 2013 and it was a splendid morning out in the ocean. We are all novices in terms of kayaking, and the fact that we all loved every second of it – including one of us who is positively scared of open... More

Our group of adults and children had a wonderful time on the sunset tour of Lake Durras.It was such a special experience - I'd recommend it to all. The excellent equipment, and Phil and Carolyn's calm and friendly guidance made us all feel very confident. Looking forward to enjoying more kayaking in the near future.

We have had some beautiful evening paddles this summer, glad we could share one with you guys. Have to admit paddling back in the dark under the stars is my favorite time on the lake. More

We hired paddle boards for two hours and had a blast on a rainy day in South Durras. Phil was super easy to deal with. Would highly recommend to anyone.
