    Half day in paradise

    Loved everything. The place, the other members of the (small) group, the guide, the lunch, the water taxi, the weather, the seals we saw... It was a wonderful moment, thank you!

    Excellent experience, fantastic customer service

    Scarlett, Luke and the team we’re awesome. We loved the kayak / water taxi combo, and the brilliant & thoughtful lunch. We are a fairly fit 60+ couple and the young team looked after us in every way. They made our day special. Many thanks

    Nice afternoon but not what I was expecting

    I was probably expecting more individual adventure kayaking into small coves, beaches, caves around the shoreline of the NP that can't be accessed by hikes. We had tandem kayacks (I was teamed up with a young girl that didn't really know how to paddle so I felt like I was providing most of the oar power & steering whilst she splashed around). Instead we went directly out to the seal island over open waters which I felt was a bit dull & time consuming. Seen enough seals in my life to not be enthused by them. So we pretty much taxi'ed to a close beach (I thought we may have gone deeper in the park), had lunch, waited quite a while for other boat passengers to arrive which used up another hour, kayaked out to the island and then flotilla sailed together back to shore which was cool for first 5 mins and then the group decided we wanted to kayak as that is what we paid for. I think the young guide whilst friendly and informative was keen on taking the faster, more effortless route as she had been doing it daily for weeks so she was tired. So it was ok bit not really a memorable or what I was expecting.
