We had a great kayak in the afternoon. I felt I learned how to paddle better and we even got a little kayak surfing in. Once we had gone along the coast Pete produced some cake and juice which was lovely. The wildlife weren't very forth coming but still had an excellent time. Thank you!

Excellent tour. The weather was a little rough, but we felt safe at all times and really enjoyed paddling around the headland. The squash and cake was an added bonus!

A great afternoon kayaking with the stunning Daintree rain forest for a backdrop. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, took us kayak surfing and provided cakes and juice! Highly recommended for a group of friends...or anyone else for that matter!

We also stopped off halfway at the beach to see the mangroves and Pete our guide was very informative and told us about the area, the nature and ecosystems. We also... More

I did the morning adventure trek. Pete was our friendly guide. Well knowledged, explained a lot about kayaking technique and wildlife. Had some awesome views from the kayak. Too bad we didn't got to see some sealife. We did see eagles and an osprey. Nice extra was a drink and a piece of a self baked chocolate cake :-) Would... More

I highly recommend this trip to everyone I meet up in Cape tribulation. Pete has a great knowledge of the area as well as being able to coach all levels of kayaker, making it fun for the first-timers in my group as well as people like myself who have years of experience kayaking. There's not many places in the world... More

With choosing the morning option it was a fantastic opportunity to head around the cape tribulation head tackling the waves head on - loved the whole experience! Highly reccommend the... More

Our young family of 5 had a great time with our guide. We were extremely fortunate as we had the chance to get up close and personal with a humpback whale and her calf! Amazing life-long memory.

With kids like teenagers whose attention span can be a constant challenges for others around them keeping them interested is a continuing search. This kept them enthralled and fully occupied as well as getting them lots of exercise and most importantly, totally tired them out so they were very happy for food and bed. The grown ups had such a... More
