“BEST experience, you MUST do this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Babinda Kayak hire has been an absolute highlight on our 8 month trip around Oz. Very professional from the time you make your booking, to getting picked up after your adventure. The Babinda Creek is clear, gentle and v relaxing, with great croc-free swimming. We just floated on the current for four hours, stopping to swim every now and then. It's not strenuous at all. Gary, the owner, even let us bring our dog, who rode up the front of a double kayak in amongst swims. We were made to feel like old friends. When we accidentally left our phone in Gary's car, he even drove all the way back to Innisfail to drop it off for us! Exceptional service, all done with a smile. We thoroughly recommend this outing. You must do it.

“A relaxing way to spend a day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

It was the best day ever. A slow paddle downstream stopping for a number of swims on beautiful sandy beaches.. Lots of wildlife. A must do and will do again next time. The owner Gary couldn't be more helpful. I recommend this to anyone.

“Great half day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The owner was a real Aussie character, the scenery superb with lots of birdlife, safe waters for beginners and kids and not too strenuous. The route took longer than I expected which was a good thing. Overall a cruisy, fun activity which I would do again. Expect to get wet so pack a change of clothes and wear old joggers, reef shoes or sandles.
