I am writing this on behalf on the 6 members of my family who I shouted this trip. THEY ALL LOVED IT and enjoyed every minute. So much to the extent that I am going to do it. They talked about the clear water, the beauty and what excellent they used.

Well organised by Clive, a very friendly and enjoyable trip with good safety awareness. A bonus to see a school of dolphins playing.

Really great trip. Stable kayaks, Clive was informative and friendly and looked after the group well. The tunnels, rock passages and waterfall were awesome. Great for families. Recommended.

Was such a wonderful way to spend the morning/early avo out at Cable Bay & Kayaking around Pepin Island! Loved having our morning tea and swimming on Pepin island itself and kayaking through the caves. Highly recommend!
