We did this with Rhys and another couple, and it was an all-round great experience with Emily and Manual from Austria (though Emily was a Tassie). I don't know what it is about sea kayaking but it seems to attract the nicest people. We had perfectly calm conditions, and if anything the kayaking itself was a little boring. Short of... More

This tour really gets you back to nature and makes you smell the roses. Dean is an excellent tour guide and knows the area better then anyone. Dean provides information on the local flora and fauna and can always find the right place to go in any weather. You do not have to be extremely fit as the tours are... More

Lovely afternoon spent on the water. Dean was very knowledgeable and informative. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone, even if you haven't tried kayaking before. Being a beginner is no problem. Nice to see the area from a different perspective.

My first go at kayaking. Dean was very helpful and explained paddle use, steering and balance fully before we got out into the creek. Two hours was a good amount of time on the water (we did the twilight tour). Dean's knowledge of local wildlife and birds was fantastic, and added a lot to the trip. You've got a choice... More

We booked the twilight tour and spent about 2 hours on the water. Dean was an excellent tour guide and our time was very relaxed. He followed our pace and there were lots of opportunities to just sit and listen to the sounds of nature. We thought this was pretty good value for money and it was a lovely way... More

We kayaked with a family of 4 (two teenagers). The kayaks were easy to manoeuvre and our hosts let us set the pace and were friendly and knowledgable. We saw a prolific amount of bird life, a beautiful coastal carpet python and the wake of a large stingray. Great exercise and interesting adventure. The only sad thing is that urbanisation... More

We had a wonderful morning (8.30am start) with Dean, and just loved every minute. His kayaks are custom built (by him) and so stable & easy to use. I loved skimming over the sandbars, exploring (and learning about) Bribie Island, and the depth & breadth of information provided. This tour will work both for novices and those with kayak experience... More

I did the twilight tour from 3:30 to about 6pm. Dean, who has more knowledge about birds of the area than I thought existed, took myself and my two children aged 13 and 11 out for a great tour down Bells Creek. Wonderfully peaceful, learned lots about the local wildlife and habitats, and had no problem with the really top-quality... More

Just did the morning hire but this spot is heaven the current in the water ways is strong so it helps if you can or have kayaked before if the weather is good and the wind low then it's great

I joined a group tour for the morning in August and reall enjoyed my first kayaking experience. I was really impressed by Dean's knowledge and stories of the area. It was great to see such an abundance of wildlife, from birds to stingrays. Refreshments were provided at the halfway point when we got off the water and onto Bribie Island.... More
