Q- How much canoeing/kayaking experience is required?
A- While we do require you to be of reasonable fitness, no experience is required for our canoe tours. Our trips are designed to cater to all levels of experience. All that we ask is that you welcome adventure with an open mind.

Q- Do I need to be in great shape to join one of your tours?
A- We require a reasonable level of fitness we ask that you are capable of a few hours of moderate exercise, although the hiking sections of the tour are not long they are quite steep and involve some scrambling and low level climbing. It can be quite hot in the gorge over summer, we start the tour early to avoid the peak of the heat, but you need to consider your capabilities in hot conditions. Most important is an adventurous spirit.

Q-How much paddling is there?
A- We paddle for 6 kms, 3km down the river and then 3km back to our canoe site about 1.5 hours. Not everyone paddles the entire distance, you are able to head back to our canoe site at any time.

Q- How stable are the canoes and kayaks?
A- The kayaks and canoes we use are both very stable, the likelihood of capsizing is minimal.

Q- Are children welcome and is there any age restrictions?
A- Yes, children are welcome to join the tour (they usually love it) we offer a family rate. Please note the minimum age is 4 yrs unless arranged directly with us. Those concerned with being in "their older years" please contact us to discuss your physical abilities. We take a broad range of people on the tour and anyone with an adventurous spirit should enjoy the day.

Q- What clothing should I wear?
A- During the hotter months of summer we recommend you wear light loose clothing with good sun protection. Do not hike in lycra, rash vests or full piece swim suits as you will get too hot, bring your rash vest /swimsuit for the canoeing section. The rest of year clothing suitable to the daily weather is appropriate.

Q- What shoes should I wear?
A- You will need good walking shoes, runners, sneakers, hiking shoes/boots definitely no open footwear, such as thongs, crocs, flip flops.
Q- What do I need to bring?
A- You will need drinking water (1.5 litres per person in winter and 1.5-3L in summer) food/snacks for the morning, bathers if you want to swim, hat, sunscreen

Amazing trip!
What an amazing day! Hiking, kayaking, and swimming in the gorges of the Kalbarri National Park. We visited in late October 2018 and the weather was perfect, a little cooler than usual for this time of year at about 25, but warmer in the gorges. The hike into and out of the gorge is suitable for most reasonably able-bodied persons but wear decent foot ware and be prepared for some fairly steep sections...
The kayaking was amazing along a 3km stretch of water and the color of the rock is stunning, coupled with an opportunity to see wildlife is in natural habitat.
Having completed the kayak there was plenty of time for a nice relaxing (and cooling) swim in the gorge before hiking out. Helen was an excellent guide and this tour is highly recommended

Fantastic day tour
We did the full-day tour and had a fantastic day. Natures window and Z-bend offered a very nice view. We had a nice hike down to the river, at then a beautiful canoe trip along the river with a wallaby and some parrots. The climb out of the valley was a bit challenging, but not a problem. Our 11 years old son loved it and did the climb without any problems.
Thanks for a great day.

Adventure ++
A fantastic morning out, great 4wding to the edge of the gorge, hiking was great, down into the gorge, needed to use your hands a bit to help you down. Canoeing was lovely and relaxing, you get a real feeling of exclusivity with the private road into the bush for the bus and then the storage of only your canoes tucked around the corner in the gorge at a secluded beach. The climb out was a real treat, going back through the waterfall. You need to be ready for a bit of rock climbing but the guide is very experienced and shows you how to do it in a very calm and relaxed way. A fantastic trip all round, really worth it.
