My partner and I did the Cape Woolamai Coastal Tour in late December. It was a great day out on the water, with a friendly guide (Stewart) and even some seal-spotting! Well-recommended!

We had a great paddle with Stewart circumnavigating Churchill Island (3 adults, 1 child). Great scenery, good fun and a wonderful way to spend 2 hours. Bit windy on the other side of the island but we got there! Highly recommend Pioneer Kayaking!
