This was one of the highlights of our trip to Cairns. The staff are friendly and professional. We had a great leader (Dan, the Kiwi)! who safely guided us down the beautiful Tully River. Would highly recommend this to anyone who visits Cairns!

Went for Raging Thunder Fitzroy Sea Kayak tour. Hosts Mickey and Brendon were absolute legends. It was fun muscling through the last bit of choppy sea to get to the Small island. Kayaking does take some time and doesn’t leave too much time to explore...More

Definitely the highlight of our trip to North Queensland. Our river guide "Fish"was fantastic with great control over the raft, knowledge of local fauna and flora plus many funny stories and one liners. Would highly recommend this activity to adventure minded people
