My wife and I booked in for the sunset trek not really knowing what to expect since we'd never really done much kayaking before. We enjoyed it so much!
We started off a little bit on the back foot due to a minor booking kerfuffle but our guide was very helpful getting us into the group and up to speed. Once we started off it was great fun - straight out into the open waters of Cape Tribulation bay. Moving along we encountered a school of fish that kept jumping out of the water all around our kayak and seemed to follow us around for a while.
While moving around the bay I looked up to see the mist forming on the mountains about Cape Trib and the sun starting to set over the mountains, everything was starting to quieten down. Not to be lulled too soon we got to have a bit of fun chasing small waves in our kayaks. Once all that was over our guide unexpectedely cracked out home made chocolate cake and drinks for everyone - there we were floating out in the bay, enjoying the sunset and the sounds of the rainforest with a tasty afternoon treat in-hand.
As we headed out toward open water we picked up a bit of speed and then as we moved out past the headland we got the help of some well placed prevailing tailwinds and currents that made the paddle home to our starting point such a relaxing and laid back experience - plenty of time to soak up the last rays of the day and the magical scenes of the Daintree rainforest and mountains above Cape Trib.
To top it all off, once we were finished we were treated to a spot of fresh coconut - a nice way to finish up with a sweet little energy boost.
Be prepared to have a bit of fun on this afternoon tour, get a little bit wet, do a bit of light exercise, and, importantly, soak up the relaxing experience that it offers up.
