I enquired about this activity as it would have been great kayaking around the beaches of Cape Tribulation but I was informed that the kayak tours no longer operate due to the crocodiles in the area.

We had a great kayak in the afternoon. I felt I learned how to paddle better and we even got a little kayak surfing in. Once we had gone along the coast Pete produced some cake and juice which was lovely. The wildlife weren't very forth coming but still had an excellent time. Thank you!

Excellent tour. The weather was a little rough, but we felt safe at all times and really enjoyed paddling around the headland. The squash and cake was an added bonus!

A great afternoon kayaking with the stunning Daintree rain forest for a backdrop. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, took us kayak surfing and provided cakes and juice! Highly recommended for a group of friends...or anyone else for that matter!

My friend and I had a fantastic afternoon trip with Paddletrek. It was great to see Cape Tribulation / the beautiful rainforest and stunning beaches from a different perspective. We also stopped off halfway at the beach to see the mangroves and Pete our guide was very informative and told us about the area, the nature and ecosystems. We also learnt about the wildlife and we were lucky enough to spot a turtle and see a sea eagle too. Felt very safe - especially as it was my first time kayaking and Pete is an excellent teacher - he helped us to get the hang of the paddle technique! Thanks for having us - we had a blast :-)

I did the morning adventure trek. Pete was our friendly guide. Well knowledged, explained a lot about kayaking technique and wildlife.
Had some awesome views from the kayak. Too bad we didn't got to see some sealife. We did see eagles and an osprey.
Nice extra was a drink and a piece of a self baked chocolate cake :-)
Would defenitely recommend when it's your first time!

I highly recommend this trip to everyone I meet up in Cape tribulation. Pete has a great knowledge of the area as well as being able to coach all levels of kayaker, making it fun for the first-timers in my group as well as people like myself who have years of experience kayaking.

There's not many places in the world that you can surf over reefs whilst looking at the beautiful rainforest.

Thanks guys!

An awesome experience with tour guide Pete tailoring the day for those involved. As a first time seakayaker I learnt how to read the weather/wind and how to paddle properly! With choosing the morning option it was a fantastic opportunity to head around the cape tribulation head tackling the waves head on - loved the whole experience! Highly reccommend the longer journey option for the adventurous souls out there. Thanks Paddletrek for such a memorable experience!

You are very welcome! One of the things Pete loves most about his job is teaching people about kayaking and the elements involved. Great to hear you had a good time and thank you for your review.

Our young family of 5 had a great time with our guide. We were extremely fortunate as we had the chance to get up close and personal with a humpback whale and her calf! Amazing life-long memory.
