This was a bucket list experience! Terry is a very knowledgeable host and we learnt a lot about penguins, the kelp forest and conservation during our kayak tour. This experience is highly recommended!

An unforgettable and informative excursion in the kayak which gave us a perspective of the shoreline that we know so well from the land, but rarely see from the the sea. Terry imparted lots of interesting information about the penguins, the seals, how to manoeuvre a kayak in a swell. We did this excursion with 2 children under the age of 13 and felt stable and safe all the time. They loved it. The safety briefing was thorough and was also directed at the children. Terry is patient and warm and made our outing in a kayak really special. Highly recommended when the weather is good.
