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.

This little trip was a highlight of our stay. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and we had a very interesting paddle around some of the best bits of Maggie Island. Well worth it!

We wanted to leave a review to say what an amazing experience we had. It was our first time using a sea kayak and Craig made it such an enjoyable and smooth experience. The information and stories craig had were fascinating and the sunset itself was beautiful. The water was peaceful and we saw a number of large sea turtles which was so exciting!
I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore more about magnetic island, see some sea turtles and to learn about the indigenous people on neighbouring islands.

Craig was an excellent guide. His commentary on marine and bird life was much appreciated, as was his in-depth personal knowledge about indigenous life on Palm Island. The kayaking was good value. I can fully recommend this activity.

We did the morning tour with Craig. It was a perfectly organised, fun activity. We felt comfortable during the whole tour although we never have been in a kayak before.
Craig shared a lot of knowledge about nature on the island and how the first nations lived there. On top of that, we saw many exciting animals.

Amazing day in Horseshoe Bay with Craig. So much more than a Kayak tour! We enjoyed Craig’s ability to connect us to the land and the history of the island.

Loved the thorough safety talk and instructions on how to use the kayaks. Even as complete amateurs we felt safe and capable.

The interactive info sessions were amazing. Craig is open, honest and very knowledgeable about the Islands and indigenous culture. You’ll want to sit down and talk with him for hours!

They took photos as we moved along though if one is able to bring a waterproof camera for more photos, that works well as dry bags are provided.

This was a wonderful highlight to our holiday. Thank you!

Thankyou Samantha on this positive feedback. Yes we make sure everyone has full information and safety tips before we go out on the water. We like to provide everyone free photos as I don’t think it should ever be an extra cost, memories last a lifetime and I hope that you had a wonderful time in North Queensland Cheers and happy travels Craig 🏝️🚣🏻‍♂️

Craig is an excellent instructor and makes you feel very confident on the water. He is also a great guide, with many interesting stories and information about this beautiful area. The sunset trip is a wonderful way to finish a day in Horseshoe Bay.
