WOW what can i say this is one of the best trips we have done. We did the full day Kayak and sail and had the lunch. This is great value for money. All staff members super friendly, helpful and very knowable. Saw heaps of wild life too. Thanks heaps to our kayak guild Gazza, you were O for awsome, great hot choc, better than a coffee shop, and also to our sailing skipper Daryl and Sophie.
