Lovely day kayaking in one of the most beautiful parts of the world (yes we have enjoyed many other places). Our guide Nadia was most capable, informative and safety conscious. Easy pace for beginners, but you can hire a kayak and paddle by yourselves if you prefer a quicker pace. You will be given suggestions of where to visit, so... More

I recently went for a half day seakayaking with Salty Dog, I have to say I really enjoyed it. Funny and informal learning about the ecology of the area and how to kayak properly. Its all about good core muscles. Unfortunately no turtles but still a beautiful kayak out to white rock and back. I would highly recommend it to... More

Nice kayaks, friendly personnel, good service. Pricey a bit, but worth every penny. I recommend it to anyone, unless you are absolutely not fit.

I did the half day kayaking tour on August 10, 2016. The weather was perfect, the crew/guides were fun and helpful and it was an overall great experience. Much more enjoyable than being packing into a boat heading to populated touristy places in the Whitsundays. Glad I made this choice.

My wife and I booked a private 4 day/3 night kayaking and camping trip accompanied by a guide from Salty Dog. Our guide Neill was excellent: knowledgeable and capable as well as great company. I'm not a particularly confident paddler myself and Neill did a great job of adapting the itinerary to suit my capabilities, whilst still giving us plenty... More

We took a mainly self organized camping trip with Salty Dog but asked them to provide us with a guide and some equipment. One of the owners (Neil) was our guide and he gave us the best possible experience. He was helpful, patient and and extremely knowledgeable. We had a brilliant four days. The ferry brought us back early and... More

Salty Dog provided an excellent week of kayaking from Whitehaven Beach to Hayman Island, with walks and snorkeling activities. Everything was provided and guides James and Nadja saw to our every need. The experience from a kayak was more intimate than can be experienced from any other mode of transport. There was plenty of opportunity to experience the islands without... More

Outstanding adventure and no better way to enjoy sea kayaking and the beautiful Whitsunday Islands. Well organised, stable kayaks, plenty of good nutritious food, and friendly and capable guides.

We were very fortunate for great weather and our guide "Lion" had some great stories to share on the trips between islands. Need to have reasonable fitness and fan of the outdoors, as you will be using muscles you don't normally use :) Make sure to check the weather as you will be at the mercy of the weather.

There is no better way to explore The Whitsundays other than by sea kayaks! Our group of 6 were transported with our guide to Whitehaven Beach where our adventure began. Every beach we camped at, had it's own unique beauty and to watch the sunset each night with wine in hand - was paradise! It was exciting to launch our... More
