We did the self-guided tour and it was very well planned, we got upgraded to a bigger boat because there were some waves and everything was thought through. Waterproof bags were provided and we started kayaking just after the sunrise. The Coorong was really beautiful and we spotted a lot of wildlife, there were Emus walking on the beach and... More

What a terrific day paddling round the beautiful and peaceful Coorong! Just the right balance of kayaking, walking and munching on scrummy food. Brenton is so engaging and full of fascinating info about the area. For a first time kayaker I was pleasantly surprised at how relaxing and enjoyable it was - learning the 'cockle dance' and sampling the bush... More

Brenton works hard to make sure you have an interesting and fun day. There are frequent stops for short bush walks across the dunes, where Brenton picks bush tucker for you to taste. And then it's also included in lunch later. We walked over to the ocean and were taught the cockle dance to find them. The dunes and lagoons... More

We happened to see Brenton with his Kayaks at Meningie. I was just a little worried that it could be expensive but when I saw his rates they were very very reasonable. We booked a 2 seat Kayak and had an awesome time.

This was a surprising highlight to our SA trip. Five of us kayaking the Coorong with Brenton. Where the film Storm Boy was based, it was exciting to see it and learn more about the area. Brenton knows it inside out. In just one day we fell in love with it. The kayaking is easy and fun, walking across the... More

Brenton, our guide was awesome, very easy to talk to- I take my hat off to him for working so hard in order to make his business the success that it is. His systems and processes where well thought out and effective. The kayaking was great, food was fantastic the weather perfect-what more could you ask for!

Five middle aged women on their annual girls trip have voted this the highlight of their week discovering Adelaide and its surrounds. Brenton gives the tour the personal touch having to change our tour times to suit the weather, so it could be perfect for us. The kayaking is invigorating without being challenging and its always a thrill to be... More
