    Great Fun!

    Took my nephew for a paddle, Tim was an awesome guide with heaps of local knowledge and some hilarious stories. The round the mount paddle was pretty sedate but still fun with some great points of interest and history. I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Mount. Cheers Tim, we'll definitely come back for some fishing next time!
