Very good, Daisy our instructor was very helpful and took the time to help us enjoy our surroundings and provided a history of Brunswick and the area around it. Would recommend it to anyone looking to go river kayaking

I was solo so I was randomly paired with another solo kayaker and we had a great time. We only saw whales but I was excited to just be ocean kayaking. Guides were funny and knew the perfect times to take rowing breaks.

Dragged My girlfriend out for kayak experience… she did well, for a non-sport person and it is her first time. We saw dolphins n whale … it was so much fun… except the last part .. our kayak flipped over on our way in

Luke and his team were fantastic from beginning to end. Very knowledgeable and informative with great insights about conservation and the marine ecosystem at Byron. Highly recommend. Thanks to the whole team.

Our guide was brilliant and had excellent knowledge of the water. He knew all about the animals who lived out in nature and brought us out to see the dolphins. He also took some very funny pics
