The experience was amazing. Check in with Craig and his team of staff was smooth and professional. We set off with our double Kayak and paddled over to Store Beach (near Quarantine Beach). It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect. Definitely a must do if you live or are just visiting Manly. The best way to see Collins Flat, Quarantine or Store Beach. And they supply dry bags, so next time we will take a picnic.

Thank you for taking the time to review us and give us five stars! It is great to hear the kids feel they had the opportunity to gain confidence in the sea. Hopefully, we will see you all out on the water soon putting your new skills into practice.

A wonderful day out - we rented 2 SUP boards for 3 hours, the team was extremely friendly and helpful, great boards and the scenery - just gorgeous! We picked up some litter swimming in the water - would be great to incentivise others to do the same, eg by offering a 5% discount or so for the next booking :) Cheers and we look forward to our next experience!
