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

Hi Louise- thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. Little penguins are something we don't regularly see so you lucked in there! The National Park is truly spectacular from a kayak, a whole new perspective. Happy travels- Susan .

It helps if you have kayaked before and have some fitness. Nice look at Coles Bay, good commentary. Scenery is great.

Had an awesome time paddling along the bag with a really informative guide, Simon. Our advice is to go during clear skies and good weather to have an even better experience. And be sure to don weather proof clothing during cold weather

Wonderful to experience kayaking on Coles Bay with Benjy and Chris. They were warm, welcoming and witty. We felt safe and well-looked after at all times. The kayaks, oars, fleeces, life jackets and 'skirts' were all first-class. The natural beauty of the area was enhanced...More
