          Best surfing lesson on the coast!
          Awesome surfing lessons with Joe and Chelsea, they are passionate and cheerful, clearly enjoying passing on their skill and love of the surf. In just a couple of sessions our kids have progressed from absolute beginners to standing and riding, catching a wave on their own, and are starting to read the surf to pick the right wave and carve across the face. Patient, knowledgeable and full of energy. Would give six stars, Waves to Wilderness will not disappoint!

          Fantastic experience
          My Mum and I had a fantastic time over several days with Waves to Wilderness. I had several surf lessons with Joe (which were great fun and really well guided), and then we went on both the rainforest waterfall experience and the coastal adventure. Both had really beautiful sights, and Joe and Chelsea had really great knowledge about the areas, and their love of the region really shined through. The food was also definitely a highlight, with delicious homemade (by Chelsea) brownies and cake for morning tea and gourmet toasties and sandwiches for lunch. It was a real pleasure getting to know Joe and Chelsea and listening to their entertaining stories of previous travels. The tours and experiences are a must-do if you are in the area!

          Excellent day.
          This tour is run by a couple who are owner, operators. We found them to be very professional, and extremely friendly. The actual tour was great value. It included fantastic scenic locations, with very knowledgable commentary. The food provided was excellent . Fresh, homemade, and set out in beautiful settings. Adding to this, I accidently dropped my phone on the bus before being dropped off. I rang them and said I would be happy to come and get it, but they went out of their way to return it to our apartment.

          Holiday around Coffs
          I loved the early morning kayak ride, Then the short wetlands walk was magical as well. I also enjoyed the animals and the whole scenery up in emerald Beach. Food was awesome and Joe was very knowledgeable about the places we went to, from history to changes and even local folklore. Hahaha He is fun to be with..

          Definitely worth doing & well worth it! We all loved it!
          We went on the rainforest tour and my husband, 13yr old son & I all loved it! Joe & Chelsea are very friendly & easy to chat to as well as very knowledgeable about the rainforest and the whole surrounding area. Our tour was slightly altered due to road closures and recent heavy rains & flooding however Joe managed to find a way around the closures & luckily we were still able to go. Unfortunately we weren’t able to swim in the waterfalls even though the weather was amazing due to the very heavy flows of the waterfalls but this just made them so much more spectacular!! We have some wonderful photos & great memories! Our son loved it & was very interested in the plants & trees in the rainforest & we loved that he got some education Plus exercise without even realising it! This is a day worth doing & is also well worth it! We loved Joe’s stories of his many travelling adventures and Chelsea’s morning tea & lunch were delicious!...Stuart only recently told me about the Brush Turkey taking Joe’s bread roll at lunch... I didn’t know about this because Joe was looking for us to come & have lunch. Sorry Joe. Lol Thanks for the great day & the laughs guys... we are all still talking about it & highly recommend it.

          Sun, water, wilderness and wildlife
          Kayaking, bush walking and a delightful morning tea and lunch all in the company of our lovely guide Chelsea. A true local who loves the region, her knowledge of the area was great. We shared beautiful scenery with our wildlife. Stingrays, turtles, cranes, finches, kites, black cockatoos and kangaroos were just some of the creatures we found on our adventure. We even discovered some native raspberries to nibble on! Chelsea was attentive to the needs and interests of our group which gave us a memorable day. I look forward to revisiting and discovering more of the region.

          Surf lesson
          Our two boys had their first surf lesson with Joe this morning. Joe was very friendly and took great care of the boys (11 & 13) they really enjoyed it and were up on their boards, surfing! Joe was very easy going and gave the boys extra time. If you are in Coffs and need a surf lesson I highly recommend his services.

          5 star tour - Coastal Adventure
          My wife and I had a great day out with Chelsea and Joe - we did the coastal adventure tour and had an awesome time - very professionally run with lots of activities and local info thrown - would definitely recommend adding this to your holiday plans! Next time we are in this part of NSW we will be doing one of their other tours given our experience with the Coastal Adventure.

          Awesome Surf Lessons
          My daughter just completed the 4 day Surf Groms program. Joe & Chelsea were amazing instructors taking time to explain the intricacies of surfing & how to be safe in the ocean. They were patient & kind with all the kids and cheered them on every time they caught a good wave. They are both very experienced surfers and obviously love what they do as it shows in their work! Thanks for an awesome few days. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to learn to surf!

          Sunset Experience
          This is a beautiful tour run by friendly, easy-going local guides. The walk itself is very pretty with lots of encounters with kangaroos along the way. The climax is a picnic watching the sunset with local gourmet produce and a bottle of local sparkling wine. Absolutely fab! They are happy to cater for multiple dietary preferences too. Food is a real highlight.

          Awesome surf lesson!
          Joe and Chelsea were awesome with our kids, had them standing up and riding waves to the beach in next to no time. They put in far more effort than we paid for and it was smiles all round. Sarah (14) Jacob (12) and Veronica (10) all had an unbelievably good time and are twisting my arm to buy them a surfboard already. We will be back!

          Fabulous coastal adventure
          We had a fabulous Coastal Adventure today with Chelsea, of Waves to Wilderness Experiences. We explored the Urunga Wetlands where we saw many birds, including Magpie Geese. Then walked along the Urunga Boardwalk before stopping for home made cake and morning tea. Then went to Emerald Beach where we walked among groups of kangaroos grazing on the headland. Then went to Moonee Beach where we ate lunch under a shady tree overlooking the beach. Then went to the Sealy Lookout where we had a spectacular view over Coffs Harbour. We topped off an excellent day by buying avocados and bananas direct from a growers stall, before being dropped off at our resort. An excellent day with a driver who gave us a detailed comprehensive tour of the Coffs Harbour coastal areas.

          Dorrigo Scenic Tour from Coffs Harbour
          We went from Coffs Harbour to Dorrigo today with Chelsea and Joe of Waves to Wilderness Experiences, and we really enjoyed the home-made cake at morning tea, the picnic lunch, the information about the locations, as well as their professional attitude.

        Great day tour the hosts are so friendly and informative and the food was absolutely amazing. I have a lot of food allergies (gluten,dairy, soy and egg free) and they made amazing home made morning tea and lunch which had so much favour even my husband enjoyed it. The effect they went to make sure we had a great day i can say not a lot of companies would do. They go above and beyond to make the tour experience a great day for all .
        Thanks from

        A huge thank you to Joe for giving us one of the best experiences. John and I were the only people on the tour, but it still went ahead for which we are very grateful. We saw beautiful rainforests and amazing waterfalls and were provided with an excellent commentary from Joe who clearly loves his job. The morning tea and lunch was delicious. Thanks Chelsea - we loved your frittata!! I apologise to Joe for being so slow, you were very patient!! We are definitely going to recommend this experience to all of our friends and family. Thank you!!!

        Thank you Chelsea and Joe for a wonderful day out. We had a lovely time with our 8 and 10 year old exploring the Dorrigo rainforest. Joe and Chelsea were very knowledgeable and were able and happy to answer all our questions. And thank you Cheslea for the very yummy morning tea and lunch it was delicious. I highly recommend this tour. Out of our week stay in Coffs Harbour my two children said this was their favourite day out and my husband and I both agree. Thanks again.

        Me and my two friends had a great time on this tour. We were lucky enough to be the only group on it for the day which meant we had the guides fullest attention. They are knowledgeable of the surrounding areas and made us feel so comfortable from the get go. Being on tour with them felt like we were being shown around by a family friend. The waterfalls were beautiful and the rainforest mesmerizing, and the best way to end the day was the wine tasting. Could not recommend it more!

        It was an absolute beautiful day spent in the company of the rainforests of Dorrigo and meeting some fun people in the group. Joe and Chelsea were extremely knowledgeable and couldn't do enough to make everyone comfortable on the trip. The homecooked spread was absolutely lovely. P.s: Chelsea, that carrot cake was divine ! It was a fun day exploring rainforests , waterfalls and winding down with some brandy cremes at Raleigh winery. Delicious 😋 It was one of my best birthdays ever 🥳

        A great day out from the moment Joe picked us up from our accommodation to when he dropped us back. Joe is extremely knowledgeable with a great personality. The morning tea and lunch is all freshly made by his wife and very tasty. Nothing is rushed. With a walk through the rain forest, a stop over at Danger Falls where you could swim if you desired and then finished off the day with wine tastings at a vineyard. Highly recommend this day trip.

        Joe was really accomodating. He had me picked up straight from my airbnb since transpo is difficult where i booked into and also took me back to my place after. Quite knowledgable and shares interesting stories. The chocolate brownie Chelsea prepared was exceptional and even the lunch. We visited a lot of falls and the best part is where we swam. I highly recommend the trip be prepared for easy/moderate hike its exciting. Then the wine testing is amazing youll taste some local wines you cant even buy elsewhere not even online. 5 out of 5!
