Excellent tour. The weather was a little rough, but we felt safe at all times and really enjoyed paddling around the headland. The squash and cake was an added bonus!

A great afternoon kayaking with the stunning Daintree rain forest for a backdrop. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, took us kayak surfing and provided cakes and juice! Highly recommended for a group of friends...or anyone else for that matter!

Our young family of 5 had a great time with our guide. We were extremely fortunate as we had the chance to get up close and personal with a humpback whale and her calf! Amazing life-long memory.

Hi, yes there are crocodiles here and until recently they didn't pose a threat to our tours. We are not running tours at the moment though because of increased risk and safety concerns.
