My friends and I rented kayaks this past Saturday and paddled our to Bribie Island. It was beautiful. Craig, one of the owners, was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely hire here again.

Thanks for the great review and 5 stars. The tinnies are great little run-abouts for exploring. See you next time for the half cabin hire - they are definately a more comfortable ride.
