Overall an incredibly disappointing excursion due to nothing other than to poor service throughout. The day didn’t start well with a late collection from our accommodation (having been told the incorrect time).

Great experience, instructors are very outgoing and fun but also knowledgeable about not only kayaking but also the area and the wildlife. Dolphins didn't disappoint! Would highly recommend

The absolute highlight of my Byron Bay trip the kayak trip alone was awesome but coming so close to humpback whales in their environment was incredible. Loved every minute.
