Our tour guide Tom was so so lovely. Very knowledgeable and knew alot of byron bay and it’s history. He took us to all the spots and they were beautiful, unfortunately the weather was not the best that day but it was all worth it. The crystal castle was amazing and definitely worth a visit. Lunch was provided with a BBQ made by Tom just burgers and chips, simple and easy, you can’t complain! Anyway we just want to say thanks to Tom as he was genuinely such a good person and tour guide.

Easy to find the guys at the store, simple laid back explanations, really put us at ease, for people who have not done it before. Easy to get the grip of and just not a 10 because we didn’t see the dolphins but they did promise us another go on another occasion which we will definitely take next time we’re in.

Dragged My girlfriend out for kayak experience… she did well, for a non-sport person and it is her first time. We saw dolphins n whale … it was so much fun… except the last part .. our kayak flipped over on our way in

Our guide was brilliant and had excellent knowledge of the water. He knew all about the animals who lived out in nature and brought us out to see the dolphins. He also took some very funny pics

Great day, very friendly instructors. They were up for a laugh and had good knowledge of the area. We got to see 2 pods of dolphins which was amazing.
