Jim runs a very professional tour, with careful safety briefings and clear directions on safety on the water. All equipment was provided and in good order. As a septuagenarian. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and would highly recommend it to sea explorers of any age. The tour to Seal Island, and adjacent rocky islands , then along the west shoreline of Penguin Island gave a very different perspective of the Shoalwater Bay natural attractions. We were served a delicious lunch, attended the Penguin Discovery Centre's showing of the cute rescued little penguins, learning about their habits, and their challenge for survival. Jim provided interesting commentary on the ecology of seagrass meadows, the fish, the sea lions, the early history of people on Penguin Island, and the raucous pelican colony. Our day was capped off with a snorkel in the bay, seeing turtles and schools of fish, before we paddled back to the mainland on a strong sea breeze. After 6 hours we were a tired and happy. multinational, multi-age crew. Thank you Jim.
