To be in a kyack 3kms off shore in Byron Bay in search of dolphins was an experience I loved. Unfortunately, the dolphins didnt get to see us on the day I was on the sea!.. Never mind, next time I'm sure they will us! The tour guides were great... very friendly, patient , very informative and very instructive on... More

Alot of hard work on the arms and back Recommend taking a travel sickness tablet before doing this activity We didn't see any dolphins but we're invited back for free. And our pictures were apparently ruined so that was upsetting after all that.

Hi Thank you for taking the time to review us as all feedback is important to us. We do hope you will come again with your dolphin guarantee where you and your entire group can come again for free. Your dolphin guarantee does not run out so it can be used anytime. It is a work out for the arms... More

This was our first time ever kayaking and had such good fun! The staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. We saw so many dolphins getting so close, and even a sea turtle. Would recommend,

We booked with our hostel so we got a discount which was handy, but it is well worth the money anyway. The experience is amazing - you get to see a resident pod of dolphins up close along with some turtles if you're lucky, the kayaking isn't too difficult for beginners and they give you tim tams at the end!

Myself and my girlfriend went on the afternoon kayaking tour (leaving at 1pm). Our tour guide was Sam and he really could not be faulted. This was our first time kayaking so we were understandably quite nervous, Sam went through everything with us and waited until we were ready before heading out to sea. Once we'd got the hang of...

...And one to definitely tick off the list. Seeing animals in their natural habit is a million times better than in any zoo or aquarium. The guides were helpful, knowledgable and really friendly. Picked up at the hostel and taken to the site. Got to jump out and have a swim half way through. A couple of dolphins even swam... More

I am terrified at the idea of being in a little boat out on the swell but I went against my better judgement to go kayaking with dolphins with my fiancé yesterday morning. It was a very worthwhile experience, there were many pods of dolphins that came very close to our kayak several times. Being so close that you could... More
