Amazing value for money. I had a wonderful experience. One of the best things I have done in Sydney. The day of my experience because Covid and the weather, many cancelled yet the owner took me out solo. It was very important I went that day and I was not put off with the cold weather. I did not miss out on the experience as they kept my booking. I enjoyed a lovely coffee while on the water and enjoyed the amazing views that Sydney has to offer from a unique angle. The guided tour was complimented by being provided lots of the history of the surrounding area, as well as friendly conversation throughout the experience. Very interactive. I felt safe on the water at all times. The extra measures that have been put in place to ensure a COVID-19 SAFE Environment made me feel at ease also. Deep cleaning is completed after every use of equipment. I would recommend this experience to everyone. Also I was informed about the cheeper option of the experience if you agreed to cleaning the rubbish up in the morning while on the experience. This shows that is company cares, this Kayak experience is a big step above its competitors. Thank you SYDNEYBYKAYAK for an amazing experience. I will definitely be back with friends to repeat this amazing experience again.

Although we didn't enjoy the sunrise because it was a cloudy day, we fully enjoyed the experience. The instructors were really friendly and made sure that we are comfortable and safe. They took pictures of us, explained the history of the harbour and invited us to paddle for almost 1h 30 min along the
