We loved our experience with Matty and Ella. They took care of the whole group, great fun for everyone. Even provided with fresh seasonal fruit for snacks and talk about the surroundings. Thanks!

In Saturday my partner and I had booked the 8am SUP on the beach. Arrived early and was really keen, only “Bretto” never showed up. After waiting for 15mins we called to find out what was going on. The man who picked up the phone sounded hungover and told us there had been croc sightings (there were many locals on the beach so I’m doubtful). After asking why we weren’t contacted he said that he couldn’t find our contact details, only I had been emailed twice and my phone number was included on the emails. He offered to take us through Mossman Gorge with a larger group however we had other plans, he stated that we could have a refund however that has not happened as yet. Highly unprofessional and disappointing.

Had a fantastic early morning Stand Up Paddle board session at 4 mile beach. As luck would have it, we were the only 2 in the group and picked a fabulously flat and clear day to enjoy the experience. Saw plenty of fish and several turtles. Our guide was very patient and she was even good enough to retrieve my sunnies from the ocean floor. (I do not recommend wearing glasses unless you are prepared to lose them ). Great attraction for any level of experience to enjoy. Highly recommended.

My hubby, myself and 3 teenagers had a fantastic morning out with Monique stand up paddling up the Mossman river! Easy to do, having never done sup before we all managed really well, and picked it up with no problems...Monique was fantastic at teaching us how to sup and her knowledge of the area was excellent. We enjoyed a facial scrub and swinging on the ropes, and jumping out of trees on the way. Morning tea selection of fruits and choccies was a delicious added bonus.... thanks a million guys, the morning was a highlight of our holiday to FNQ! Well worth the $$$

We wanted to go for a kitesurf lesson but without wind Matty convinced us to go for stand up paddling on Mossman river. We both first thought suppen is a bit boring, but we had such a fun day. Matty is an awesome guide and he did challenge us with all kind of different techniques and fun stuff to try.

And bonus: free beauty mask ;).

Recommend this trip! Fun way to see also something of beautyful Mossman river.
