      A very nice experience
      I went on this adventure and had such a nice day! The guide was passionate and gave a lot of information about the area, wildlife, history, culture etc. We were lucky to see the dolphins within a few minutes and also the weather was working with us. I would recommend!

      You won’t regret doing this experience!
      Such an incredible experience. The day was filled with learning about the wildlife in Noosa and exploring the ocean. Seeing the dolphins was definitely a highlight, making the whole experience magical. The instructors were great fun and enjoyed having a laugh with us as well. Would definitely recommend to all - even just visiting the exclusive 4WD beach was jaw dropping.

      Great experience
      Amazing spot and Kev and Vince were very helpful and put us at ease as we kayaked out much further than we would have done on our own. Beautiful views and a lovely sunset before unique drive home along Noosa north shore. A great day enjoyed by all the family.

      Epic 4WD and Ocean Kayak Adventure
      Our trip with Epic Kayak was first class, the 4WD tour along the ocean beach was fantastic with great wildlife spotting along the way. Kayaking out into the ocean was great fun, we saw sea eagles, dolphins, tuna. Our guides Kev and Vince were really knowledgeable and made for a really memorable experience for the family that will be with us for years to come. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

      A True Adventure
      Incredible experience! Such a fun drive out to the beach where we were surfing. Our guides made the experience comfortable and shared so much info on the local ecology of the Everglades. Very attentive instructors and gave great tips! I’m an experienced surfer so I took the lesson as a way to go out in a group, and learn about the local break. I’m so happy I did and would definitely take another lesson with this company.

      A fun day of sand and paddling!
      An excellent day with Vince and his team exploring the amazing Great Sandy national park north of Noosa Heads. Great drive up the beach highway in a comfortable custom 4X4 coach to Double Island point followed up by some great kayaking off the point and lighthouse, even had a pod of dolphins swim by to join the group. Everything was well organized, equipment was all in great shape, and Vince and the team ensured we had a fun, safe and informative day. Overall an excellent day and we would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area to try out this tour to see all that the area truly has to offer. Thanks for an amazing day!

      Didn't feel safe - tough sea conditions and low instructor ratio with group with kids
      I did not feel safe on this tour unfortunately. I was on the kayak tour with a couple, my sister, a single lady, a mum her 2 kids and the instructor. The waves were quite big and it was very tiring. I felt if we got into touble we would not all have been ok. The mum with the kids was struggling so the instructor connected his kayak to theirs (it didn't help the mum did not paddle much when connected). He said he was exhausted and also had a back injury to be careful of - this concerned me as it was in the middle of the trip and it was quite hard work to paddle. Myself, my sister and the single lady got pretty seasick. The instructor had some tips on how to aleviate it - also suggesting we were shallow breathing. I think I was doing this because I was so afraid. I think further instruction would have been helpful, such as how to get back into the kayak if we capsized in the ocean. There was confusing instructions on how to get to shore - no one seemed sure of what to do, and the instructor saying to both come in and to wait and he would swim back out. Thankfully we got in ok. I think with the kids and the sea like that an additional instructor would have been better. I didn't see any sea animals, but a couple of people saw 2 crabs - though this is of course never guaranteed. The instructor gave good info on the drive to the sea on the local landscape. I suggest checking the weather before booking - if it's not good conditions with a calm sea I'd consider doing something else. It's also cheaper to do a similar tour from Rainbow beach, and also further down the gold coast

      Dolphin and turtle kayak adventure!
      This beautiful day trip was the highlight of our time in Noosa! We were lucky enough to have one cool dude called Vince as our tour guide, who had a wealth of knowledge about the local area and was clearly passionate about the wildlife and really brought the good vibes and good times! As soon as we got into our kayaks we instantly saw Turtles, Vince was so informative, passionate and answered all our questions in detail about these beautiful species! We certainly learnt a lot from him! Soon after we were fortunate enough to see a pod of dolphins which we spent most of our time observing! This experience is one to remember!

      Challenging paddle
      Full disclosure: my husband and I are in our mid-60’s in average physical condition. We both have kayaked before in lakes on kayaks with back support. We took the tour anticipating a much more mellow paddling experience. We rode in the 4x4 van over the beach (which was cool), but when we got to the site in Noosa heads the waves off the beach and the current were more than we expected (it was pretty windy…we overheard some discussion about going to a lagoon instead, so conditions may not have been typical). But since we were there we figured we might as well try. Vince, our guide, gave instructions and off we went. Paddling was much harder than either of us anticipated and between the swells and the current it was tough to keep the kayak headed straight into the waves to prevent tipping over (one couple did). In addition, the lack of back support on the top-sitting sea kayak seat made for a challenging paddle (core and hip flexors were sore the next day). We couldn’t really appreciate the surroundings (Fraser island) and by the time we caught up with everyone (we were among a few kayaks that lagged behind), we missed most of the commentary by Vince, who was leading. We ended up riding the waves back in too soon (at the edge of the swimming area) because the current kept pulling us in amd we didn’t want to tip over (I was told a number of others did tip). So we had to carry the kayak down the beach back to the vans. Didn’t see any dolphin or much other wildlife either, but frankly I was so busy paddling a whale could have passed me and I wouldn’t have known. All in all it was a challenging experience and I’m glad we finished “successfully”, but not one I would want to repeat. I think the literature for the tour should probably be a little more forthcoming about the potential for rougher conditions due to wind.

      Shallow water kayaking - no chance or mention of dolphins
      The team are great and made the experience however this is not Epic Kayak with dolphins and is very much misleading and false advertisement. I understand nature and wild life can not be predicted but we kayaked approx 20mins in shallow water (knee length) and saw nothing then kayaked over some waves (knee length). I am no dolphin expert but we didn’t even get into the ocean (past the surfing waves) and the team never mentioned them. All we saw was dead jelly fish and a lizard. Not worth the 2 hr drive there and back. lovely team, great bus but should be advertised as more of a rainbow beach tour wish we didn’t bother booking unfortunately.

      Magic dolphin encounter
      Everything about the tour was special - Vince gave us fascinating facts about the environment, drove along the beach superbly, gave us clear directions on how to paddle through the waves, and led us to a spot where we were literally surrounded by dolphins. It was utterly epic! We paddled a little further to get a good view of the lighthouse, rested briefly and then paddled back, into the wind, spotting more dolphins, before catching a wave that deposited us safely back on the beach. Vince is accomplished, charming and patient - he clearly loves his job and living in the moment!

      Could do better
      Spent 2/3rds of the trip being bussed along a bumpy beach to get to our destination - was advertised as a 4x4 experience. Other 1/3rd was spent kayaking including tuition and over half an hour standing around waiting for the guide to park the bus up. We did see dolphins which made the trip worthwhile. No rays or whales but we did briefly see one small turtle. The sea was full of jellyfish. Guide was informative and witty which helped. Food snacks very poor 1 small packets of crisps and a single chocolate biscuit!! Overall not great value for over 300 dollars…
