Not the best day, low tide, lots of portage (carrying your canoe), lots of walking through mud. Would be a great trip in optimum conditions i.e. reasonable water depth, at other times of the year. Wear old clothes, one sinks into the slippery black mud...More

We did the morning canoe safari with Dan - it was incredible value and something i'd highly recommend. You get access to the river via some pretty bumpy off road tracks, which we couldn't have done ourselves. The breakfast was AMAZING... bacon, eggs, hash browns,...More
