Kayaking up the Clyde river in two-person boats. All gear was provided. We were given good instructions on how to use the boats safely then went on a guided tour upstream (it was too rough in the bay). It was fantastic fun for all (ages 8 to 47) even in the rain in winter. Will definitely be back.

Mosquito Point is the breeding ground for these wonderful creatures. They glide through the water and come very close to the boat ramp. There also happens to be a very nice bakery at the Point where you can grab a hot coffee and yummy things to eat.

These Rays truly are a remarkable creature and one of the greatest natural attractions we have on the South Coast of NSW. The rays you are seeing are "Smooth Spotted Stingray" and are a bottom feeder common at boat ramps on south coast nsw where they can grab a free feast from the fishermen's scraps. There are also "Eagle Rays"... More

Four of us did the Guerilla Bay to Barlings Beach kayaking tour. Josh was extremely professional, helpful and a great guide organising and conducting the trip. He went out of his way to ensure we took the trip on the best day weather wise and made the trip enjoyable for all of us. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended. Interesting history about Oysters from a person who is a 5th generation Oyster farmer. Great to see the beautifull area where all the stages of production occurr. Easy paddle, my 8 year old daughter loved it and found the paddle and information interesting.

Great tour today with the kids. Josh, our tour guide was knowledgeable with not only the local marine life but history of the area. Lots of fun, active and appropriate for kids. Soldier crabs were a highlight! Thanks for great time.

Today Josh took 4 keen paddlers out to The Tollgates. Josh is a expert guide and safety is his number 1 focus. These trips are safe and awesome fun. Great outing for solo travellers, friends couples and families. Had such a great day signed up for the Oyster tour tomorrow- yes, we get to eat oysters straight from the leases!
