We had an absolutely amazing time on the river. Although the weather was a bit overcast, it didn't effect our experience at all. The kayaks were extremely easy to use, and the fact that the tour is self guided gives you an unprecedented freedom that other activities in the area cannot match. The ability to float along at your own pace, and stop and go for a swim whenever you want was great and something that we've felt other activities and guided tours lack.

The length of the activity was also good, you really get your money's worth not at all as with other activities where you sometimes feel like it's over before it's begun.
The scenery is incredible, the river never gets crowded and you feel like you're basically alone in the middle of nature.

Recommend it whole heartedly!

We had a really fun afternoon kayaking. Very peaceful - just the three of us and the wildlife. I had never been in a kayak but the creek was low and it was a safe and easy trip down to Babinda. Garry, the proprietor, was very friendly and professional and the whole area was delightful.

As we were staying in Etty Bay and we decided to so something. we chose Babinda Kayaking hire. A bit daunted that we had now guide but once we got going it was fun. A nice leisurely row down the creek. Had a few laughs on the way as the creek was low at places and we got stuck. we had an overcast day and a few light showers which was refreshing. if it was hot there is lots of banks that you can pull up too and have a swim or stop and have a drink and snack. was very relaxing and not hard work to paddle down stream. l would do it again.

My family of 4 (children 10 and 8) did a 1/2 day trip with Babinda Kayak Hire back in January 2012 and loved it. When it is hot and humid up in FNQ (Far North Queensland) this is a great way to cool off and sit back, relax and enjoy the pristine scenery of Babinda creek. Lots of spots to stop and have a swim. It is a really easy and relaxing kayak trip any level of fitness welcome. Make sure you bring your camera. I highly recommend this tour for anyone coming to tour FNQ.

On a weekend getaway,we discovered this absolutely incredible experience. Tucked away in the pristine surrounds of Babinda, away from the rat race, we had an excellent time just relaxing and letting the cool, clear waters of the creek take us on a slow, meandering journey downstream, for a thrilling half day. This left us time to enjoy the other gems in the nearby countryside. We will definiely do this trip again, and would recomend it to anybody of any fitness level, if they are looking for something just a little out of the usual tours. Thanks Gary, we had a great time.
