Kayaking with Dolphins in Byron Bay
Reviewed 17 September 2011

We found out about the Kayaking by chance and we are so lucky that we did. It was well organised and generous; there was no rush to make it back even when our tour over-ran. As for whales and turtles - they were everywhere. One whale almost knocked one of the kayaks over when it popped up to the surface. It was incredible.

Deciding to go out with Cape Byron Kayaks was totally worth it - the price was great, guides were welcoming, fully competetent and entertaining - PLUS we got possibly the best view of a humpback calf ever, along with dolphins and more whales!! Would recommend this company to anyone and even if you saw nothing the scenery and serenity out on the water is just fantastic. This is the silent and non-invasive way of seeing the wildlife up close, with a minor amount of effort involved, and Free Tim Tams - you can't go wrong!!

WOW - this experience is like no other. Byron Bay has so many stunning sights but sitting on your kayak looking back at the Bay is a different perspecive and it should not be missed. It's a great thing to do when the weather isn't great because the dolphins are still out. I also saw a turtle that was massive and so cute. I'd recommend this as a MUST DO to every traveller in Byron.

I am glad I am not the only one amazed by the MASSIVE turtles!! Thanks for taking the time to review us it really is a great place to be - on the water looking back at the bay and checking out the wildlife and you are right when the weather takes a turn just as well join the ocean dwellers who LOVE the water!!

When we went out on our kayak trip the sea was pretty rough and I was exhausted after about 30min. I continued to paddle but after 2 hours I was really over it. We didn't see any whales and no sea turtles either and towards the end we saw the tip of a dolphin and that was it. Also, right in the beginning I got ripped off the kayak by a big wave which left quite a few bruises and 2 sprained toes... Our guide was good though - he gave us a few details about the bay and whales and dolphins but it wasn't enough to make up for the cold and the pain...

Sam & Rob were our guides - 2 top blokes! Friendly, seemed to love their jobs and took great care for everyone's safety. Saw humback whales from a few hundred metres away - legendary! We went on a rainy miserable day and since we were already wet then why not?The water was beautifully warm. Highly recommended to anyone.
