Great but

Lots of good things about the tour despite very windy conditions. There were some issues with what was advertised on the website and what is delivered. For instance, advertised morning tea was not supplied. Virus was the excuse, but use of bottled juice or water, and prepackaged fruit or muffins etc still allowed but not used. Start place and time inaccurate. We saw several turtles, and fish. One of us has never paddled and was quite nervous, but completed the tour with enthusiasm.

Great morning trip, highly recommended

Great tour, we saw turtles, tays, and a shark. The kayaks were good, and our guide was very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this tour.

Excellent day

We loved our turtle kayak tour so much! The guide was so knowledgeable and did not stress about time or effort, he just wanted us to have a great fulfilling experience. We snorkeled and had a tour of the island which was not detailed in the booking and therefore a special surprise that we really appreciated. Thankyou!!

A Big Thank you to Andy

I'd like to thank Andy for his professionalism yet friendly nature. He is a fantastic bloke for the job. He made sure I was safe in the waters and kept checking on me till the very end. I would recommend a promotion for him from the company. Thanks Andy for everything you have done.
