Did the Derwent River Platypus River with my wife in April. It was my first time kayaking and I was a little nervous at the start. However Fiona and Liam are excellent teachers as well as tour guides and kept the whole group feeling very relaxed and safe. We hope to come back and do Lake Pedder next time! For anyone visiting tassie, I highly recommend adding this activity to your itinerary!

I took my 73 year old mum and 3 boys under 10 on the platypus spotting tour. We had the most amazing afternoon and can’t wait for another kayaking adventure. The guides were fantastic and made us feel very comfortable even though we had limited experience. They were super helpful with the kids who were difficult at times (because they were tired). I can recommend this tour to anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of the river and spot some platypus.

We are a family of 5, kids- 14,12 &7. All of us had an amazing time. Fiona and Liam were so kind and encouraging, that even our nervous 12 yo was kayaking confidently on her own by the end. Seeing platypuses in their natural habitat was something we all will remember. Definitely a must do whilst in Tassie.

We had a wonderful time in amazing weather. Liam was very helpful and informative with our family as first time paddlers. The pace of the paddle and exploring was suited to us. The brownies and lunch were yummy.
