Great Afternoon out on the water

Had an awesome day out on Paddletrek, saw turtles, small black tip reef sharks, a dugong and had great views of Cape Trib itself! Thanks for the awesome experience!

What great fun. We did the sunset trek and Unfortunately we did this when quite a breeze had blown in so the water was just a "little" choppy. Not a lot of wildlife due to the conditions but we had a total blast. Easy going heading away from the beach but boy was it a good workout getting back. We... More

We loved our trip with Paddletrek, especially because they took us out in to rougher water rather than just staying in the bay. Didn't really see wildlife as the turtles kept popping there heads under before I could get a good look at them. I was worried before I went about kayaking in crocodile country but the guide reassured me... More

Pete took us on a great day out for a paddle in Cape Tribulation. He had great and well-lived knowledge of the area and its local ecosystem, and of kayaking technique in general. Really friendly and approachable. Highly recommended

Fantastic customer service--had to reschedule due to traffic and ferry delays, and the staff were super nice about the whole thing. Great day on the water; Davage was friendly, attentive to the whole group, and had great things to show and tell us. Folks paddling saw reef sharks and turtles, we got to eat a freshly opened coconut (and homemade... More

We had a great day out with Davage. Saw lots of sea turtles but unfortunately didn't get a glimpse of Daisy the Dugong. The tour had everything from a relaxing paddle with time to take in all the beautiful scenery to adventurous tough padding into the wind and waves getting around the head of the cape (I loved this bit!)...

We spent a lovely couple of hours on the water around Cape Tribulation with this company. The weather was warm and humid, but not too hot - with a nice breeze keeping you cool on the water. We saw some sea turtles, fish and dolphins as well as some predatory birds. Our day was quite calm, but you're paddling/kayaking for... More
