My partner and I had an awesome day today kayaking and snorkelling with Steve. Steve is a great friendly Aussie bloke with so much knowledge of the area and a great sense of humour! We were lucky enough to see a Dugong! Thanks so much Steve for making today the highlight of our holiday! 🙂


It was very fun and an eventful day. Shaun and the team were fantastic. Very good experience. Highly recommend for families and people without any kayak or snorkel experience
