The paddling experience was a birthday gift from my partner and she couldn't have made a better choice. We were the only people on the paddle tour this day so it was peaceful. We were fortunate enough to encounter a whale and Nathan the guide...More

A great experience, with all the gear provided. Nathan was friendly & helpful, and the hot drink & cookie a welcome treat. It’s a beautiful spot for a paddle, made even more special by several close encounters with inquisitive seals!

We really enjoyed our guided paddle around Coles Bay. Beautiful weather and informative, friendly guide. We had the opportunity to watch two seals lolling in the sun. Overall, the experience will be a special holiday memory. Highly recommended!

We travelled as a family - two adults and two teens - and booked the sunset kayak tour. The two-seater kayaks are safe, stable, and almost water-proof. The paddling is relatively easy but if you are the navigator make sure you set the peddles correctly...More
