Great experience

Was an awesome day out. We were upgraded as we were the only ones for our particular tour. Super lucky we thoroughly enjoyed kayaking along the edge of the national park back to Marahau a real bonus. Guide was excellent very informative and abit of fun. Loved it

Hi Gillian, Thanks for your review and coming out with us. It sounds like you loved the experience with us and got super luck with getting the free upgrade as we always go out of our way to make it work for your guests as we could have just cancelled the like many other operators do. Would love to know how we could have made this a 5 star experience for you, if you wouldn't mind getting in touch and letting us know. Cheers Rohan :)

Excellent trip

Really enjoyed the guided kayak to split apple rock. The weather was great and the coastline beautiful. We saw some Wray fish, star fish, Oyster Catchers and Shags. Enjoyed a picnic on beach and swim in the sea. Explored beach rocks and lagoon. Thank you ti Quinn for a great morning.

Nice and relaxed trip

It was my first time kayaking on the sea and I totally enjoyed it. We got a little bit of wind and waves but the two person kayaks are very stable. The tour is not that long so the paddling was quite relaxed. Split Apple Rock looks pretty cool and it’s fun to go around it with the kayak. Our guide was pretty chill and created a good atmosphere throughout the trip. Can definitely recommend this tour!
