To all who take time to read this review if you do nothing else on your trip to Port Douglas do yourself a favor and take this tour with Ollie! I took this tour with my mum and stepdaughter so its for any age. Ollie was amazing and so knowledgeable he really took time to explain everything and answer any questions we had. We received so many great tips on what to do in the region. Ollie is one passionate young man about all things environmental which was so inspiring to see. The best tour we have been on since we arrived 6 days ago we wish we had discovered this earlier as we would have taken more tours with Ollie and the Team. A huge thanks to Ollie, we are heading back to Melbourne to spread the word. Thanks again Tammy, Pam & Lana

Wow, we had 3 kids that love to SUP and they had a blast with Ollie, Gina and Barb.
The team had an easy going manner and connected well with the kids. The 7 year old struggled with the waves in the beginning but Ollie was amazing and coaxed her through it all. So much fun!

We especially loved the secret location where we had an entire beach to ourselves. Every angle was picture perfect and Ollie even took some happy snaps for us.

Thanks again guys - the kids loved you so much they sent you a postcard. Looking forward to the next time we are in PD - we will definitely take the Lowe Isles tour!

A stunning day. Ollie and Peter were awesome hosts running a special boutique operation - there was just our group of nine on the boat. We were out at the low isles by 0830 and stepping out onto our paddle boards to paddle through the mangroves of Woody Island over sharks, a turtle and stingrays before coasting back to the beach on Low Isle for a snack before snorkelling amidst the spectacular coral and fish just off the beach - Ollie providing expert commentary on what we were seeing. Yummy lunch in the shade as we watch the big tour boats arrive...
A guided walk around the Island with Peter providing history of the area and notes on flora and fauna.
Then back for more snorkelling/paddleboarding before another exciting speedboat ride back to town. Ollie and Peter were relaxed and knowledgeable - all round great guys! We would highly recommend them especially over the bigger tours which have done previously.
Cheers Ollie and Peter! T, M, A, J, E, C, L, W, P

We had a beautiful peaceful paddle this morning upstream with Ollie our guide then just floated back downstream. Ollie knew his stuff !! and was so informative about our beautiful surroundings and the local people. We stopped along the way to eat lemonade fruit which Ollie bought along for us and ate wild passion fruit from the vines - delicious !! Just a beautiful morning well worth doing with a very entertaining, environmentally passionate young man . Highly recommended to anyone
