A great experience, with all the gear provided. Nathan was friendly & helpful, and the hot drink & cookie a welcome treat. It’s a beautiful spot for a paddle, made even more special by several close encounters with inquisitive seals!

Hi Louise- thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. Little penguins are something we don't regularly see so you lucked in there! The National Park is truly spectacular from a kayak, a whole new perspective. Happy travels- Susan .
