My sister and I went on a SUP tour with Gina through the rainforest and had a wonderful time. It was quiet with beautiful scenery including a sugarcane field, wildlife and views of the rainforest. It was a nice break from many of the touristy things we had been doing during our time in the country. Gina was a great guide- very knowledgable and encouraging during the paddle up the river. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes a little adventure!

Had an incredible time SUP-ing through the rain forest with Gina. I would recommend this tour to any one visiting, it was the perfect way to spend an afternoon! We stopped along the way to taste fresh fruit and did clay masks from the bottom of the river.

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!
