Fun time kayaking. Self guided, you meet at location and they run you through safety and explain where you can see turtles if you are lucky. We went to the spot and waited around for about 30 min with no luck but still had fun exploring, tanning and getting a good arm workout in :)

Amazing, fun day

After arriving in Airlie beach during a potential cyclone we weren’t very sure if we could do anything enjoyable. Then we found the kayaking and paddle boarding experience. The clouds parted and the sun came shining out. We paid for four hours in the end and really got to know the wildlife, turtle bay and islands. The Greek goddess instructor was absolutely wonderfully helpful and fun to talk with and helped my partner to feel one with the waves. We will definitely be coming back to find more. We saw a manatee, fish and lots of turtles. It was pretty windy but for two people who aren’t in the best of fittness (as we now realise) it was really enjoyable and worth it (no pain, no gain) thank you very much! We will be back xoxox

Great experience!

We had such a lovely time kayaking through Shingley Beach and Turtle Bay. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with the best service and had all of the information we needed! We didn’t get lucky and see turtles but the kayaking itself was absolutely worth it! We had so much fun! Thank you for your exceptional customer service and making our holiday special!

Self guided this is in more ways than one!

Glad I had the strength to be able to take kayak onto beach...then kayak for 90 minutes and carry back up onto grass verge...good 50m haul uphill...least I think owner could do is a bit more preparation for customers by having kayaks closer to waters edge and possibly be there on return...
