“Very accommodating!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

I had a great time doing the half-day kayaking trip with Salty Dog. Effort was made to include everyone and cater to all abilities and interests, which was great. Fun route and just the right amount of time on the water. Guides seemed friendly and knowledgeable, and I felt safe and confident about what I was doing under their guidance at all times. Pickup and dropoff at accommodation plus the photos taken during the trip make the experience an "excellent" pick rather than "very good!" Highly recommend for anyone looking to do something active while in the Whitsundays.

“Great Fun”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

This was a fantastic trip you get picked up and dropped off at your accommodation which means it easy to do. The kayaks are perfect, they have single kayaks and double kayaks you can choose which one you want but it also depends on your ability. We kayaked for about an hour and a half to an island where we did some snorkelling. The snorkelling wasn't the greatest but that we due to the tide. We then had lunch was was very nice. After lunch we headed to another snorkelling spot then we headed back. This trip is good for people with all levels of abilities and I highly recommend given it ago.

“Nice experience”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

We made the half day tour to one of the whitsunday islands. Before departing we got instructions and had some time to practice for those who haven't been kayaking before. On the way we looked for turtles and the bird life as we were crossing a lot of bays etc. The crew was friendly and helpful. On the island we had time to snorkel or swim or just sunbathing. The service also provided a small fruit and cheese platter as well as drinks for refreshment. Afterwards we headed back to the harbour taking another way so that we could see more of the area.

“We didn't even do snorkeling”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

I went on this trip purely because I wanted to go snorkeling, which didn't happen. It sounded pretty cool that you kayak out to the snorkel spot/island, but on our particular trip - half way out to the island the lady called it off because it was apparently too windy and said let's kayak to some other random near-by island, have some food there and head back. We had about 10 mins to play with the snorkel on the shore of this random island where there was NOTHING to see with the snorkels. Above all, we were not given a partial refund for missing out on the snorkeling experience on the island which they advertise all over their site, we suffered the full fee and didn't even get to do snorkeling. What a rip. On the plus side, they pick up up and drop you off and have a yummy platter and decent kayaks that's all i can say that i liked about the trip.

“Extremely good location and well run company”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

At the start of our three day solo tour, my wife bust her ankle slipping on wet rocks at the slipway. No fault at all of Salty Dog. Hayley (owner) was very helpful and transported us both to the hospital in Proserpine. She also gave us a lift back to the hostel and spent the whole day with us. I did return for a day trip and had a great introduction to the inner Whitsunday group. Good boats and kit and a great lunch stop with friendly instructor, Suzie. We will be back.
