We went on the half day kayaking tour on 29 April 2017. Shute Harbour is a bit of an eye-opener with many damaged boats and buildings after Cyclone Debbie. The tour itself has not greatly been affected by the cyclone. The main thing is water...More

Wow, 8 day trip. would be flying in from the US and looking to do a similar week trip (unguided?) with my son. We are strong paddlers and campers. However, I am a bit daunted about arriving from overseas and doing this trip cold. can you make some recommendations? Does the Salty Dog have everything that we need? Guide required? wind a big issue? any other recommendations? thanks Hilary SF Bay
