Cool adventure tour

Was a great time discovering mulgrave river together with Allie, we were swimming, chilling on the waves. I did Sup surfing first time but it was not very difficult to keep balance, so if you want to have some adventures , swim, discover beautiful National Park abs just have fun for half of day- just book it;)

It was a wonderful experience. Thanks our instructor Allie for her guide. She is a very nice lady, I can feel her passion for life, and she would like to bring joy to her customers. I strongly recommend her organized tour.

Mastering the paddleboard

Our family had a fabulous day learning how to stand up on a paddle board on a beautiful river. Our host, Allie, picked us up from our caravan park and on the drive shared with us some of the highlights of Cairns and suggested some beautiful places we could visit and some restaurants we could eat at. She happily answered any question we asked and told us some fun crocodile stories. Allie supplied all the equipment needed even water shoes and waterproof bags for our camera and phones. She was patient as she she taught us the paddle board techniques and we were all able to get up and enjoy a new experience. We enjoyed the opportunity to snorkel even if we didn't see much. Allie provided morning tea and there was plenty of food including a home made cake. It was a great day out for all the participant and we would recommend this as a fun day out.
