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

Another unique way to experience the cape trib coast. Great guide - very knowledgeable and the chocolate cake and cordial offshore in a makeshift kayak raft was a nice surprise. We saw a turtle pop his head up near us and got a good look at the mangroves on the coastline. Be ready to work people, particularly if wind and... More

This was a great way to spend the morning and I was particularly looking forward to sea kayaking whilst in the Daintree. We were fortunate to have only 2 other people on the tour with us and we had a perfectly calm day with hardly any breeze at all. Cape Tribulation beach looked beautiful from this vantage point, with the... More

We had a great time kayaking from the Cape Tribulation Beach House. Our guide was thorough in his explanation on how to maneuver our kayak. We also learned how to ride in on the waves, which was fun. It is great to get out from the beach and see everything away from shore. Great day and not too long.

My husband and I were so looking forward this part of our vacation in Cape Tribulation. My husband had been kayaking once and I was completely new to it and this excursion was perfect for our experience levels. Our guide was very helpful and patient with me while I got used to the movements and steering the kayak. After about... More

Amazing tour of the ocean with breathtaking views of the land from the sea! Over 3 hours with Pete who educated us on the history of the rainforest and the wildlife that surrounded us. Definitely a must do while visiting the area. Will recommend to everyone I know.
