“Fantastic Kayaking with fabulous tour guide Josh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Decided to try out kayaking at Amity with Straddie Adventures. Josh the tour guide was a fabulous mix of calm competency & encouraging to the less experienced.Snorkeling was also on offer as part of this tour & the feedback from those who did it was great. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to spend a fun morning exploring the water just off AMity & down Mangrove River. Great value for mony.

“Big disappointment with this company”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

The girl of the staff was not friendly at all and on the look of her face you could easily feel that she preferred staying in bed that doing a kayak trip.
In the email of booking it was said they often see dolphins and we were supposed to do snorkeling as well. When we talked to the staff girl on the day she just admit that's been a while since they have seen one and didn't now that we wanted to do snorkeling.
She was really not organized at all with the equipment and just wanted to get done with it.
We do not recommend that company and we were really surprised because people on Stradbroke Island are usually really friendly.

We are disappointed to hear that you were disappointed with us. We have only just been made aware of this website, so at this stage all we feel we can do is advise that the tour guide in question only worked for us another month or so after your review. If you are ever back on Straddie, you are welcome to join one of our tours free of charge - email us directly to confirm your details. You will find our current staff friendly, enthusiastic and organised.
