“Great place, great day out, fantastic crew”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Brunswick Heads is a beautiful part of the world and this is a great way to get out and enjoy it. My 4-year old son and I had a great day out and were very well looked after by the crew. He can't wait to go kayaking again!

“Fantastic tour, interesting and totally lovely guides”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

We accidentally stumbled across this gem whilst wondering by the boat harbour at Brunswick and seeing the advert. So glad we did!

Simon and Gavin are the perfect guide duo - Simon is a typical friendly and enthusiastic Ozzy with a can-do attitude and a real passion for nature and wildlife. He is full of interesting facts and stories about the area and Australia as a whole. Gavin was laid back and really easy going, amazing at spotting the wildlife for us as we cruised down the river in their cute little boat, and he had some awesome stories about snakes and crocs!

Once you've cruised down the river and they've pointed out all the wildlife and told you about the area it's time to hop in the kayak and have your own adventure . Simon gave us a great kayak tutorial - we've done it before but he actually told us how to paddle properly like the Amazons - makes a big difference!

After a guided kayak tour we then splashed about in the main river for a bit then hopped on our little boat where wine, beer and nibbles were awaiting - brilliant end to the day.

Absolutely fabulous afternoon out and in truly great company - couldn't recommend these guys more :)

Thanks for the great review. As you pointed out we do also have local Madura tea not just great coffee and cakes. We had excellent bird sightings on your cruise which was fantastic as we are doing a bird monitoring survey.

“A wonderful way to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Whilst staying in Byron Bay I luckily saw reviews for Byron Bay Cruises & Kayaks on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go. So glad I did. It was enjoyable and informative and relaxing. Simon was extremely knowledgeable about local flora and fauna and also really good company so he makes an excellent guide. I've only kayaked once before but this was well within my abilities. Simon really makes sure you are OK and are enjoying the trip. Well worth the money. I went alone but this would be great for groups of any size as well as kids.
