Wonderful Experience

Absolutely wonderful morning out on the water. We were able to relax take in our surrounds and see sea turtles, sting rays, snorkel & explore. Andy was a fantastic guide and we our group enjoyed the entire experience. Highly recommended for Cairns Locals to get out and explore a local gem!

Great but

Lots of good things about the tour despite very windy conditions. There were some issues with what was advertised on the website and what is delivered. For instance, advertised morning tea was not supplied. Virus was the excuse, but use of bottled juice or water, and prepackaged fruit or muffins etc still allowed but not used. Start place and time inaccurate. We saw several turtles, and fish. One of us has never paddled and was quite nervous, but completed the tour with enthusiasm.

Awesome experience

Andy and his team are friendly and informative. The tour is relaxing and fun out onto the reef and across to Double Island. We saw turtles and some others saw reef fish when we stopped for a snorkel around the island. I was surprised how easy it was to kayak and being unfit, I didn't get puffed out or sore muscles afterwards. Highly recommend this morning tour, what a peaceful and great experience away from it all.

Awesome morning

Watch out for the sharp barnacles. best morning my 13yr old son and I had together in a long time. Lots to see. Andrew was helpful when my son cut himself on a barnacle rock. Even that didn't spoil our morning. So much fun
