    Ultimate weekender awesome trip
    We did the overnight sea kayaking and camping trip. It was awesome! A fantastic experience. We saw stingrays, dolphins and lots of bird life, swam in Wineglass Bay and enjoyed sunset drinks at our beachside camp - perfect!

    Fabulous view of Cole's Bay from different perspective
    We are older novices, but Molly and Amber were patient and lively, encouraged us through the heavy surf to the smoother water. The scenery is beautiful and it was so much fun to see it from the ocean side. I dressed warm instead of dry, and would recommend not wearing long pants which of course got wet :) Really appreciated the cup of hot tea on the beach at the halfway point. The exertion was well worth the effort, really loved this exhilarating experience!

Magical view of The Hazards. The tandem kayaks were super stable. We had a bit of a swell and I felt the stability of them even when the swell caught us side on sometimes. We caught a head wind on the way back to base but Leah (our guide) was really good as she saw I was falling behind so she attached a tow to my kayak. We have 3 kids (ages 7/10/13) and they thoroughly enjoyed the bumps with the swell. I even saw a large draughtboard shark as the water was crystal clear and a resident sea eagle. The snacks & hot drinks gave us the extra energy for our paddle back. Highly recommend it to anyone including families. The company’s safety first attitude definitely puts you at ease especially when you are caught with the challenging conditions towards the end.

Guides Amber and Molly were great, very funny and knowledgeable about the area.
Paddling itself was very achievable for almost any ability and guides provided a great instructional before the trip and were always happy to share advice during the paddle.
Definitely recommend not wearing cotton pants or underwear as your bottom will very likely get at least a little wet (merino undies are great!) and take up the offer of a dry bag or you will not be able to get at your phone to take photos!

Totally 100% worth it! We quickly booked a few hours prior to our adventure! We enjoyed the paddling adventure with a small group. Matt was an excellent guide. We have done a number of small paddling trips & he respected our abilities - while still providing a safety checks. Matt was timely & easy going. Excellent local knowledge & positive attitude. We had rainy weather & still had a blast! (Don't let the weather stop you, as it's an amazing adventure, and the refreshments were a nice plus.) Also, the evening trip was excellent with the super, super low tide- Al kinds of exposed natural wonders.

We were a family of four aged 71 to 25. Great afternoon paddle with a stop for a cuppa and cookie. Saw rays, tried sea lettuce, paddle under a wharf, in front of Freycinet Lodge and was told the history of the lodge, paddled to an old quarry and more history. Kayaks very stable, great as 2 people per kayak, not to taxing, relaxing while having some light exercise, good equipment supplied to keep us all dry and warm. Great guides as we laughed, were told funny stoies, local history and felt very safe and secure in good hands. 5he experience was fun and relaxing.

We loved our paddle adventure! There were extremely large waves on the morning we went but our very capable guide - sorry can’t remember her name but the lovely young lady with the reddish braids - made us feel quite confident. She was very patient and was very informative about the local wildlife and an old quarry. Our break on the beach was lovely and we enjoyed a hot drink and some delicious cookies. This is a trip really worth taking . Thanks!

This is a must do if you are visiting Coles Bay.
We took the 8:30 am paddle, the water was a little choppy to start, however the sea kayaks are all the gear supplied is top quality and easy to handle.
Tour guides were excellent and inspired confidence and had a good knowledge of the area.
Magnificent sea level views of the mountains and as the morning progressed the weather improved.
The half way beach stop provided not only a range of teas and coffee but Milo with a MARSHMELLOW as well, ya cant beat that!
Altogether a great experience, easy to book and well worth the money.
We shall return and spend longer in this great place.

Can't beat a Milo with Marshmellow, hehe! Thanks for providing some kind feedback and good information to other guests. The views of the Hazards Mountains sure do look different at sea level.

Highly recommend the paddle, we also did the cruise however on the paddle you are able to get closer to the shore and see a lot more. The paddle itself wasn't challenging and was very enjoyable.
Ben was our guide and he was super friendly, and very accommodating of our family.

Mat and Amber proved to be great guides for this paddle. They're passionate about the area and this came across in the commentary on the wildlife and the history of Freycinet. It was very well organised and they made it good fun and informative as well. Highly recommend.
