Great fun in a beautiful location

We hired canoes and set off to explore the serene Lake Durras. The owner was very helpful and the hire fee was not expensive. We really enjoyed the experience, great family time.

We wanted to book a sunset paddle for our daughter's birthday. When we called, Carolyn checked the weather report and told us there was a forecast for wind and rain around 5:00 PM, so she suggested that a morning trip would be better for us. As it turned out, the weather was perfect at 10:00 AM and we went for... More

We liked to do the trip and children had fun. Landscape ist beautifull. But: Fotos dont show that water isnt deep at all. Sometimes you stick and have to walk. So this part of the thin is quiet unsatisfaying.

Hi there, We are really glad the kids had fun. Lake Durras is (at the moment) a coastal tidal lake. Sometimes it is open to the ocean and affected by tidal changes and sometimes it is closed to the ocean and fills up with rain water and can be quite deep. It is always navigable even when quite a low... More

Did the sunset tour last night on the lake. absolutely stunning, and great fun kayaking on the lake. Phil, the owner, was so helpful and informative. We even stopped in the middle of the lake and had a nice cuppa tea and a delicious chocolate muffin. great fun. This is a must do for anyone visiting Batemans Bay.

It was lovely to have you out for a paddle and to show you the lake. It's looking a bit different today!! The lake has broken open to the ocean after all the rain and is tidal again. No more launching through the grass. Take care and hope to see you again when you are back down to Durras. Regards... More

My wife has tried kayaking a few times before but found "the-run-of-the-mill" rental/recreational kayaks frustrating to paddle straight. "Bay and Beyond Sea Kayaks" have very good quality sea kayaks for hire and Loren found hers easy to manage. We had a very pleasant six hour paddle on the very picturesque Durras Lake after Phil gave Loren some initial instruction. Problem... More

Thanks to Phil at Bay and Beyond for a great 2-hour lesson in kayaking on Durras Lake. I learnt about 10 practical tips on how to paddle with power and control, and I got to try these out these in front of Phil's expert eye.
