Boat hire for 4 people. Great experience. Set-up was great from the Manly Kayak team with a brief explanation on the boat, best places to visit and the fishing equipment provided. The boat has a single small engine and was very easy to operate (Drive, Neutral, Reverse). Plenty of room on board for 4 people plus towels, walkies, fishing equipment etc. Takes only 10-15 mins from the Manly Wharf to arrive at the secluded Store beach which has beautiful clear water and a great place to drop anchor. We loved it and found it to be great value for money. 5*

Despite the weather being scheduled to storm, the crew at Manly Kayak Centre helped me reschedule my booking, offered me a refund, and on the day, were very helpful and accomodating. The self-drive hire boats are easy to drive and Store Beach is a beautifully romantic place to propose to your lady - best day ever!

My son and I hired a kayak for 2 hours and paddled around to one of the suggested beaches for a swim (my son, not me!) and then paddled along following the shoreline. It was a little windy but we had a great time. The water was a bit fresh and we got a bit of a splash from some of the passing boats but it all adds to the fun. The staff were great, very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this. Especially sitting at the back of the kayak!
