      Great intro to the Gold Coast
      From initial enquiry to the end of the tour I was impressed with the excellent communication that covered all questions. Nelson was calm (good for my nerves) and awesome in explaining water currents and wind direction during the tour to help guide us well through the seaway. Fantastic views, wildlife, beautiful scenery from the water, good workout - overall a wonderful experience. Will do again. Highly recommend 10/10

      Kayaking and Snorkeling
      Wonderful experience! Being a non swimmer , I was quite apprehensive but went ahead because of my love for marine life . Kayaking was fun and Carolina was a big help as we had a bit of trouble in the rough waters . Got to see so many colourful fish. Highly recommend this tour even to those who cannot swim . Thank you Carolina for helping out!

      The best day out
      The helensvale scout group had a great day out kayaking and morning tea with beach games with seaway kayaking tours. We had the best day, i would highly recommend seaway to anyone interested in kayaking. We are planning the snorkelling tour with seaway next time. Thank you seaway kayaking tours

      What a wonderful fun out!
      I have joined this kayak tour yesterday, 7th Oct, 2020. The weather was perfect for kayaking. I've really enjoyed the tour, fun on kayaking and snorkeling. Saw variety of fish, I saw one kind of fish I didn't recognize even though I fish around here. This is a nice fun day out attraction, I really recommend for all, even with little kids the surf is not rough. Thank you Alex, it was great fun! Hiro,

      The hire operator was very obliging as we arrived just as he was about to close up and he allowed us to hire a SUP which we were very thankful for as this was our first time hiring at this location

      The Gift That Keeps On Giving
      My partner and I went on the “Chill Out” tour to celebrate his birthday, and we both had the most wonderful time! No kayaking experience necessary as a quick demo is provided before heading out. We had perfect weather and saw beautiful fish while out snorkelling. The tour guide was fantastic with a wealth of knowledge about the area. We had time to explore, kick back and relax, and were later surprised with a delicious lunch that catered to our dietary needs, such a thoughtful touch. They even bought a cake and got the group to join in and celebrate my partner’s birthday. A fantastic day ran by the most lovely and genuine people made for what truly was the gift that kept on giving. Thank you :)))

      We did the quick escape with two young children aged 4 and 7. It was the perfect amount of time and activities to keep our little ones engaged and happy. Our 7 year old son said it was the best thing we have done on our holiday yet, better than the worlds.

      Trip cancelled and extended delay in receiving refund
      I wanted to write this review so that anyone that has had their trip cancelled is aware of the potential issues faced in receiving their refund. It took over a month for me to receive the refund which included multiple texts and emails over this period. When booking this experience I was disappointed but understanding when it was cancelled, however the delay in receiving the refund is unacceptable and unprofessional.

      Very chilled
      Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Our guide Sam made it lots of fun and very relaxed. He was very friendly and took lots of photos. Only disappointment was not seeing dolphins but I guess they are wild. Water visibility wasn’t great when we went snorkelling. But these 2 things are out of everyone’s control.

      Poor communication
      Had booked the chill out tour and was contacted a few days before to say that the day we had booked wasn't looking great weather wise so asked if we could change, which we did. Was then contacted to say that the weather was going to be bad on the new day and would we be happy to change to a shorter tour which we said yes to. On the morning we arrived at the time stated but no van was there, hadn't received any email with regard to the tour being cancelled. Finally resorted to calling and was told on the phone it was cancelled and they allegedly emailed me at 9am, I received no email about this tour being cancelled. I understand they can't control the weather and that's not what the 2 stars is for, they got 2 stars because they didn't bother getting in touch and we ended up travelling to the meeting point which was a waste if fuel and time. If we're ever back in the Gold Coast area, I probably wouldn't book with this company again in case of similar issues.

      Relaxed with beautiful scenery
      Other than swarms of mosquitoes and Blue Bottle Jellyfish on Stradbroke Island, the Chillout Tour was safe with an attentive guide. No experience necessary. Scenery was outstanding. Kayaking not too strenuous with a seat in a wide, plastic kayak. The fish & chip lunch nothing special. The fish seen while snorkeling were beautiful. It's a great way to spend 4 hours.

      Kayaking and snorkelling on stradbroke island
      Honestly the best experience we had a small group of 4 and our tour guide the lovely Lucas was very lovely and taught us what we needed to know and was very patient and helpful. Definitely go with these guys and hopefully you'll have Lucas to guide you😊

    Myself and my husband went on this morning tour. The water was fairly calm which was great. The guides gave us very good instructions on how to kayak and what to do if the kayak capsized. We didn’t have to kayak very far and it felt very safe which was great. There were a few kids in our group, the youngest was probably aged about 6. The snorkelling was good fun and we saw lots of fish. The water where we snorkelled was quite shallow in places and you could actually see fish in a foot of water. This tour is perfect if you are anxious about snorkelling or kayaking for the first time, or have kids with you. The snacks provided were great too. Overall we enjoyed the experience and would recommend it. Sincere apologies, I can’t remember the guides names but they were both lovely and helpful.

    Would definitely recommend this tour. We did the kayaking and snorkelling tour to wave break island. Our guide Lochlan and Sergio were great, provided good safety brief before the tour. We went at 13:30 tour . Good snorkelling spot was near to the rocks however because of low tide and heavy wind it was bit difficult to go there thus limiting to see anything except for some fishes near to the shore. Tour did provide some water and light snacks which was great.

    It was a great experience. The staff were very friendly and worked well with the different skills of a large group.
    The weather was not ideal, we had a lot of wind, but the team made it a positive experience. Definitely recommend.

    We are a family of 4 with a young child and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Booking was very easy and I like the fact that all the waiver was done electronically.
    The day’s wind was quite strong but Nelson, Caroline and Dane did a fabulous job getting us across to Wavebreak Island to snorkel.
    They were very helpful to make sure everyone is enjoying ourselves and keeping our spirits high.
    The snorkel area was decent - you can see a number of fishes but be careful of the sharp rocks.
    All in it was a great time and was well worth.
