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.

Thanks Base and Jamie for a wonderful morning on the waters of Waangaamaap Bilya (Mandurah's Serpentine River).
We were impressed by the birdlife and Salt & Bush's knowledge of all the different species and waterways as well as the local history.
The pedalling kayaks were easy to manoeuvre in tandem and hands-free was great for taking photos. The binoculars were an excellent addition too for seeing the wildlife up close.
Really appreciated Jamie's photos which captured the beautiful samphire saltbush, birds and conditions on the day .. and us of course!
I'd have no hesitation in recommending this tour to both Mandurah locals and visitors.

I can highly recommend this experience for anyone. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The track is over flat ground and the walking pace is slow so this tour is suitable for all ages. The whole family enjoyed it immensely and are still talking about it days after

We had 2 most wonderful tours with Jamie and Base: Nocturnal Walk and Star Gazing Night. Both of them were way better than we could even imagine. The beauty of the places chosen by Base and Jamie for their tours, the knowledge they share, the passion, the organization, the muffins and brownies, the humour, the stories, the list can go on and on, were all up to the highest standards and beyond. Our two 15 y.olds loved the experience enormously. For the Nocturnal walk we had my sister who is over 60 y.o. and my husband with bad knees and we all had no problem walking the distance and didn't even noticed it because we were so engaged with the stories about everything around us: trees, bushes, possums, birds, nuts, spiders, stars, Quendas and more. Their knowledge of the night sky is unparalleled. We highly recommend anyone young and old to do yourself a favour and take a tour or two, or three with these guys. They are incredible. We can't wait for our next tours with them. Thank you so much guys, you are crazy good and lovely. Keep it up.

Thank You so Much! We enjoyed the two-night tours as well! We had beautiful weather and nice clear skies. We loved that your daughter is so into the stars, it was such a pleasure to star gaze with her, it pushed Base to make sure he knows his stuff! We look forward to having you out on tour again! All the best, Jamie and Base

Excellent tour on a sailing kayak through the Mandurah estuary. We saw Swans, Pelicans, Ospreys and got right up alongside some Dolphins!!! We even had a little picnic at a private beach along the way. Jamie was super knowledgeable and passionate about the flora and fauna of the area. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely morning touring the Mandurah inlets with Salt & Bush
I'm a bit nervous around deep water but they made me feel very safe and supported.
Their knowledge on the wildlife in the area was amazing, the certainly know their stuff.
The 3 hours flew by and we loved every minute. We highly recommend their tours.

This tour is a calm and quiet way of travelling on a peaceful river section. Peddaling the kayaks we come up close to magnificent birdlife, while learning interesting historic facts and insights about the local area. Sebastian and Jamie are both very knowledgeable, patient, well organised, and clearly love and respect the environment in which they work. Thank you very much for a very enjoyable and relaxing few hours. Eva, Joe and Christopher

What an awesome way to spend a Sunday morning! We met Jamie and Sebastian at the river’s edge where they set up a tandem peddle kayak for us and showed us how to use it. Binoculars were included. Sebastian took us along the estuary pointing out the birds, explaining their habits and conservation. Both Guides were incredibly knowledgeable. We saw A huge flock of Pelicans cooperatively fishing, as well as Ospreys, kites and a spoonbill and its chick amongst other things. We stopped for tea along the river, and then paddled further. At the end they drove us back to our cars. I’d highly recommend this tour if you’re a bird lover. The paddling was not strenuous and very enjoyable.
