Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Darby was an awesome guilde he assisted us the whole tour and helped us through tricky conditions. I don’t know where we would be without him. Our friend hurt her shoulder and he looked after her paddling for her

    We really enjoyed our morning snorkeling to Julian Rocks with Gabrielle and Angus. The ride out to the snorkeling spot was enjoyable and our guide was excited to show us everything she could while we were in the water.

    We spotted a ray, a turtle, a wobbegong shark, and what felt like a dozen leopard sharks. Of course, we also saw a wide variety of fish, including several schools that swam directly beneath us while we were snorkeling and one that surrounded me while feeding on some plant particles near the surface.

    We wholeheartedly recommend this snorkeling activity.

    We had the pleasure of having Tom as our guide for the day. Tom was absolutely amazing! His knowledge was very impressive, which added so much to the overall experience. We were lucky to get to see koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, flying foxes etc. And learned a lot about all the different species and their habitats. Would definitely recommend to anyone. The organisation of the tours was very professional, with pickups, delicious lunch and keeping us informed along the way

    Soul Surf School exceeded all expectations! The instructors were not only skilled surfers but also patient and encouraging, making the learning process enjoyable. The personalized guidance helped me progress quickly. The equipment provided was top-notch, and the beautiful beach location added to the overall fantastic experience. I highly recommend Soul Surf School for anyone looking to catch some waves and embrace the thrill of surfing.

    Was very impressed with the helpfulness of the staff, due to my age and limited walking abilities. The cruise was lovely. Really enjoyed myself

    Me and my boyfriend did 2 days surf with Mojo and we absolutely love it! We both managed to stand up on board on the first day and became pretty consistent catching waivers on second day:)
    Thanks to our great coach James who explained everything and helped us a lot!

    It was a wonderful experience, highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area! The setup is streamlined and very simple, all you need to do is turn up and Steve has your adventure ready. The bikes were in excellent condition and the navigation was very easy. Don't miss out on this tour, the bikes made going through the national park hills an absolute breeze. Doing it in your own time is also a plus and the amount of time scheduled for our bike ride was perfect.

    Didn’t think it would be as good as it was, only saw a couple of dolphins, but the boat was almost like a jet boat, plus the views of the coast wow! Dolphins come up really close. Great staff who run it are really interactive..had a great time.

    Amazing hike to the waterfall followed by a swim. The hike was a bit of an adventure and required some rock climbing, but was fun and totally worth it.
    Bbq lunch was also very good.
    Would definetly recommend this tour :)

    What a special morning.
    Just minutes away from the Pacific highway, Ricky gently guided us through the magical mangroves of the upper Brunswick River.
    We saw sea eagles and kingfishers and felt deeply ‘stilled’ by our quiet paddling through the river system.

    I booked the 4 day/4 night Surf Camp and had an incredible experience. The surf instrutor crew they have is amazing.

    I'm an intermediate surfer and I was pleasantly surpriced how they accommodated for me. Most of the campers are beginner surfers but they asked about my experience and was able to have an instructor work with me at my level rather than put me in with the beginner crew.

    All of the instructors were genuinly nice and just great people in general. Thomas and Conor were always at a high level of froth (stoke). Sophia was a great instructor that gave me a lot of great things to work on. Nat (sp?) was extremely accomodating on Chrismas Day and was able to lend me a board on Christmas Day when there were no Surf Camps that day. I had a blast at The Pass.

    I like their structure of teaching a lot. First day/first timers go in one group and get the basics. The first timers who've gone through the first day, then go into another group where they give additional, more advanced instruction. Great way to have people progress.

    I enjoyed that they took us to different locations each day to be able to try different spots.

    Highly recommended.

    From the moment we booked it until the end of the surf lesson have been nothing but AMAZING!!!!

    We came up on a long work weekend and wanted to see parts of Byron that we hadn't already seen.

    Nat took us out of the main town and gave us a bit of a tour of the surrounding areas and then we went to a beach where we were the only surfers.

    Great company, great people and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.

    We will definitely we coming on another trip when we get back up to Byron!!
