Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We contacted Simon to enquire about hiring a couple of SUP boards and he was so helpful. He arranged to drop them off for us and pick them up a couple of hours later and recommended a lovely spot to use them. Excellent communication and service, would deffo use again when in Margaret River.

I recommend this activity with Simon. He make us confident on the board and teach us how to use SUP. And the bonus is to learn on the river. Amazing.

Instructor was great. Perfect location to learn SUP. Just a little shorter time frame on the boards than what was booked in.

Great experience and very good instruction. We had never used paddleboards before and didn’t know the river either but it didn’t matter, Simon was terrific.

We did the 2 hour lesson and tour with Simon. It was 2 adults and 7 and 14 year old kids.

Simon was a good and patient instructor which was handy with the 7yo.

Everybody picked it up well and enjoyed the tour immensely. The location for us on the Blackwood River was excellent for learning and very nice to look around.

Well done Simon.

PS don’t forget to email us the price list for some inflatable SUP’s before we leave WA

We booked and paid for the tour way before our tour date, it was for a small Hen's part. On the morning of our tour, 2 hours before our tour was supposed to start, I received a text message from our tour guide informing me that he was too unwell for the tour and needed to cancel. I try to always be an understanding person, but the excuse was pretty poor and we figured that the cancellation was either due to the surf being too good to miss, or a bad hangover. Would have appreciated a phone call instead of a text message. There should probably be back-up staff to cover unwell staff. Only good part of the outcome was that we received a full refund.

To my valuable but dissatisfied client: I place a high value on all my clients and bookings. As you’ll see from my other reviews I do my utmost to provide a great experience and this is a very rare situation where I have actually cancelled on a client. People tend to assume the worst when they disappointed however I was genuinely sick. The evening before I was not feeling so good but was hoping that I would wake up feeling okay, because I never want to disappoint a client by cancelling. However I woke up feeling horribly sick and didn’t have the energy to speak on the phone. I had no choice but to cancel. I operate a small business and each of my clients receives a high-quality experience with the owner, which is myself, also being the tour guide. My sincere apologies that I wasn’t able to give you a great experience on that day. Best regards Simon Peters

We had a really wonderful trip down the Blackwood River - very calm and no waves which I've found to be an issue with previous paddle boarding attempts. Our guide was very helpful and despite us feeling very un-co-ordinated at the start, we were gliding along like pros by the end of the trip. A great way to explore the area - can't recommend highly enough!

We had lots of fun SUP boarding with Margaret River Stand Up Paddle Tours! After a relaxed journey riding to the riverside, we were given great instructions by the team leader, Simon. When we had got the knack of it and started standing up on the boards out on the river we could each go at our own pace. Simon was a great teacher and made standing up on the boards seem easy and achievable. This was great value for money at a beautiful site with great team mates, and nice fresh fruit that greeted us on shore when we arrived back. We wish we had longer to enjoy the experience!

The tour was in an amazing national park, paddling with your entire view being water, beautiful tall timbers and sky. Very well-organised tour, friendly and welcoming guide made stand-up paddling a breeze. And time for a well-earned rest, a chat and refreshing fruit platter to finish off with. :)
