Disappointing kayak
I was unimpressed by the owner. Wasn’t that very helpful in the water when slowed down. Made his assistant do a lot of the work.

Great tour with a great host
We really enjoyed the sunset tour with Josh. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. There was only 2 of us on the tour so we got to chat a bit more and he took the time to explain things in more detail.

Perfect Date Idea
I really suggest this for a start of the date idea, sunset makes it romantic, but kayak makes it unpredictable. Team was amazing, helped in everyway, where to go, what time is the best to go, they even prepared all the stuff ready to go, so when I arrives everything was there!
Thanks again, and I really do suggest it!!

Very enjoyable
We had a wonderful time paddling in the canals- then stopped at a little island for a wander whereupon the local bird life was explained to us. I was surprised it was a two person kayak but I guess that could be romantic if that was the point of the journey! However, the crafts were sturdy and in good order.
10/10 would recommend

Stand up paddle boarding
Nov 2015 • Friends
My mate and I did some stand up paddleboarding from Budds Beach. Stephen gave us some great tips on where to go and what to do. A true local with great knowledge. It was early morning and it was beautiful. If you are in Surfers Paradise, definitely call in and see the Gold Coast from the water! I will be coming back to do a kayaking tour with him on my next visit.

Fun, knowledgeable and great service!
Oct 2015 • Friends
Starting with a hotel pickup in Surfers Paradise, the whole process is made very easy! Door-to-door pick up/drop off at around 7am (time is TBC closer to date) is very helpful.
A short drive to Labrador from Surfers and already there is local knowledge pouring out about the origins of Gold Coast and other notable activities and attractions in the area.
After a safety briefing and an easy to understand how-to kayak, we're under way with a paddle across the Broadwater. Depending on conditions (wind and tide), this may be super easy or a little hard going. If you follow the guide, his local knowledge of water ways will take you the easiest way possible!
After arriving at either Wave Break Island or South Stradbroke Island (depending on conditions and guest strength/stamina), a history of how each of the islands came to light and some local wildlife knowledge combined with some amazing Dad-jokes really makes for some fun learning. A light breakfast of cereal, fresh oranges, cookies and muesli bars are enjoyed on a beach picnic with photos to follow.
The snorkelling is done at Wave Break Island, a popular spot for local divers with a good variety of sub-tropical sea life. If you fear the cold then there is spring suit (3/4 wet suit) hire for $5 before setting off but with water temperatures upwards of 25degC during summer I doubt you will need one.
If snorkelling isn't your thing, the view from the beach overlooking the Gold Coast Seaway and the expansive Broadwater with the lovely blue/green water is a great place to catch some rays and chill out.
A paddle back to the boat ramp concludes the tour and then delivery back to your point of pick-up. Great service, friendly team members, knowledgeable guide leader and a great way to explore a side of Gold Coast you might not otherwise see or hear about!
