We had a great morning out in the kayaks. Our guide gave us great info about the history of the area, and the sun came out for most of our tour which was just blissful. Highly recommend!!

Did a whole day kayak tour around the bay. Our guide was fantastic and took us out for a great paddle. She was great company and very friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Airlie. Worth the money.
