Despite cold weather and choppy waters, we still loved our self-guided kayaking experience with BayPlay. The best part of the tour for us was the fact that it was self-guided so we could go at our own pace. Due to the weather, we chose to...More

We had a great time and all the Bayplay crew we met were very friendly. Oscar, our guide, was excellent and quite the local historian, which was a bonus. Unfortunately, we were not lucky enough to see any dolphins but the tour was still great....More

All of the staff at BayPlay went out of their way to deliver some of the most warm and friendly customer service I've experienced. Nothing was a problem for these guys. Portsea is a beautiful spot for a beginner-friendly kayak. Definitely recommended.
