Had an awesome time paddling along the bag with a really informative guide, Simon. Our advice is to go during clear skies and good weather to have an even better experience. And be sure to don weather proof clothing during cold weather

Wonderful to experience kayaking on Coles Bay with Benjy and Chris. They were warm, welcoming and witty. We felt safe and well-looked after at all times. The kayaks, oars, fleeces, life jackets and 'skirts' were all first-class. The natural beauty of the area was enhanced by their explanations and historical commentaries. A hot drink and delicious biscuits on a gorgeous inlet added to the enjoyment. Thanks guys for a fabulous time!

Hi Frances- thanks for taking the time to review our tour. We are thrilled you were so well looked after by the lads. Their connection to our beautiful part of the world certainly shines through. Safe travels- we hope to see you out on the water again soon. Susan

I did the 3 hour tour starting at 9am and after an initial safety and padding demonstration we were on our way across the bay. As a novice kayaker I found the kayaks to be very stable and they have a rudder to help you navigate your way around. We stopped at several points around the bay where the guides would conduct talks about the region and it's history. About 2 hours in we got to stretch our legs and have some morning tea on a secluded beach. It was a relaxed and very enjoyable experience.

Very well organised tour.
Competent and well informed guides catered for any fitness level and gave a really interesting guide to the features and history of the shoreline.
The kayaks were much better quality and easier to handle/steer than most similar trips I have been on.
We were lucky to have a flat calm day, so were able to easily cover quite a lot of distance.
Evening/twilight tour definitely recommended.

3 hours of sea kayaking with a great guide with happy teenagers at the end. Result. Simon was a relaxed and experienced guide; they had checked our experience level from the online form we had completed so started heading out in some wind and then headed round the bay taking in the sights whilst being informed of the history and stories about the area. The highlight for us adults was watching two sea eagles feasting on a kill and for the kids the cookies at the beach stop and the kayaking across the bay. Would thoroughly recommend it.
