Salty dog hired us 2 double kayaks and a single, and we began our journey by being dropped off at Whitehaven Beach by the barge Scamper. Salty dog assisted us in tweaking our proposed itinerary in view of the forecast high winds. The next night we camped at the Cairn, then a few nights at Crayfish Beach, Maureen's and Steens....

Today we went kayaking with this company. It was an amazing experience, and the guides were kind and helpful. There were four of us and we were all catered for. The views were mind blowing and snorkelling was fantastic. If you want to do something special on the Whitsundays, this is an amazing experience, It's only $ 80 per person... More

Being unfit my arms were sore but so worth it! Doubling up with my boyfriend I could rest and let him take the reigns for a while hehe. The guides Nadia and Lyon were fun and helpful and had some interesting stuff to share. You get to dabble in some snorkelling half way through if you're interested or you can... More

We booked this the day before and they were able to accommodate us in the afternoon session. It is good for all experiences and they will look after you. If your not a fitness person at all it can still be a bit harder on you as you need to be able to paddle at a good rate. But they... More

Went on the half day kayak this morning, great water & helpful guide. We had a small group of five customers & the guide in three double kayaks. Unfortunately snorkel visibility was poor due to the recent downpour on Sunday.

We are experienced paddlers and we rented two single kayaks for 6 days with the goal of camping in the Whitsunday National Park. The weather cut our trip short, but we had a great trip. Transportation to the islands was provided by Scamper, a large landing craft that easily transported us, our gear, and the kayaks. Hailey set us up... More

My wife and I are 55+ year olds and we found the experience easy to do. Considering we paddled for near on 2 hours and not having done much kayaking in the past, we felt we coped with the experience well. Lion, our guide, did his best to keep us entertained with his knowledge of the area and checked on... More

We (2 adults, 2 kids 11 & 13 years old) went on a half-day kayaking trip with Salty Dog Sea Kayaking at the end of March 2016. The weather was fantastic and the trip wonderful. The kayaks were well maintained and we got life-vests for the trip as well as stinger suits and snorkeling gear to use out on the... More

My partner and I did the half-day tour and it was great fun and good exercise! The tour guide was great. He was knowledgeable and good fun (and had a great name - Lion!) We stopped off at a small island and did some snorkelling. They provided all equipment including stinger suits! They also provided us with a snack lunch... More
