Thanks to Macka for organising such a brilliant tour - anyone who likes a bit of freedom and adventure while being provided with great kit and tips would love this day! We did the one day tour as we were short of time but you definitely get the most out of the day.
We just expected to be provided with a canoe and map but the day was much more than that - Macka explained stuff on the way and even spotted a Jabiru before giving us plenty of time to see Lake Argyle. After leaving us to it on the river we had some successful fishing, close-up views of freshwater crocs and picnic on sandy beach. The views were incredible. Near capsize at one point added to the adventure (don't try fishing while paddling the canoe backwards and needing to avoid trees).
After being picked up by Macka in the boat he gave a great tour on the ride back to Kununurra, spotting more crocs, rock wallabies and nesting opreys for us.
Thanks! Much more than we expected!

We had an awesome time canoeing down the Ord River. This is a self guided tour, but Macka looked after us really well. He explained the map, what to look out for, and we felt really at ease. The canoes are excellent and you can go at whatever pace you want. We had lunch at sandy beach and chilled there for a while, before making it to the first camp.

When Macka picked us up at about 4pm, he took us on a boat cruise further up the Ord to watch the sunset. We totally didn't expect this, but loved it. We saw heaps of awesome wildlife and got back to kununurra.

I would totally recommend this tour. If you have time and like camping, I reckon the 2 or 3 day tour would be fantastic as well.

We did the two day, paddle in paradise! It was awesome! Macka is the best host we have experienced, knowledgable, funny and makes everyone feel comfortable about heading down the river! One of the other paddlers went at it in a lone canoe and kept up (in fact in front of us)! First day was the 23 km stretch, sounds long to the beginner but it doesn't feel like it. 6 and half months pregnant and done mostly with ease (and a great co-paddler!) Camp spot is great, rustic and the toilet pretty spicky! Cows stomped through our camp in the night which made for a laugh. Second day, 9km was more stop and adventure day. Up creeks and swimming in the spring pools. Capsized due to a spider over head... oohps. Jump rock was an awesome spot...for the boys especially. Fishing was had also. 4 crocs spotted! Macka picked up up and all our stuff (some drenched) and took us on an informative sunset trip cold drinks and all back to Kununurra and dropped us home.

Highly recommended!

Two adults and two daughters (7 and 9). Macka is a legend. He makes the day relaxed, safe and really enjoyable. The scenery including cliffs, freshwater crocs and birds was truly amazing. The day cost $480 for the four of us. We got picked up and deivered safely back to our caravan park by Macka,

This was GREAT!!!! We were picked up in the morning by Macka and then an informative drive to the Ord River from Kununurra. We were then instructed on the canoe with 5 to 6 hours to canoe 23 km to the designated pick up point. Bliss! Being in a canoe on the Ord River - the serenity, the water, the sandy beach for lunch and the amazing rocks was divine. Macka picked us up around 3pm and we had a fabulous powered boat trip back to Kununurra, watching the sunset and the company of Macka, who had great knowledge of the area and wildlife. Absolutely recommend this! We chose the one day but you can also do a 2 or 3 day camping at extremely well presented camp sites along the way. The cost was very good value.
