Super fun!
Loved the 6 hour tour- super fun day trip from Perth! Saw sea lions, lots of fish while snorkeling, tons of birds, penguins, and a dolphin. The guide was lovely and the paddling wasn't too tiring, even for a total beginner like me.

Great adventure for couples
My wife and I had a fantastic time. It was our first time in a kayak and the experience of a life time. We got to meet the local sea lion and penguins on the adventure and enjoy a nice lunch and snorkel at Penguin Island and we won the race back to the main land to finish off a great day

Creating memories
Great Kayak trip. Saw Dolphins before we set off and also during the trip. We went as a group of 10 and 6 others joined us. Mixed ability of kayaking. The guides were really patient and helped the weaker members of the team which was much appreciated. We went over to seal island and was given local info about the seals and then went over to Penguin island. Went for a tour around the island which was extremely windy (take a jacket) and saw plenty of penguins too. Lunch was delicious and then paddled back again with the guides helping as it was very windy and some of us struggled. A very enjoyable day.
