Overview

Leaving from Kalbarri Boat Hire, for your adventure, you will be taken 15km up the Murchison River to Gregory Rocks in a OKA 4WD. Here you will begin your 4km paddle down the river to Nanny Goat Well. You will be met here by your guide for the best bush breakfast in town. With your appetite satisified, you will then continue down the river to the Dance Floor. This is a great swimming hole where we regroup for the last leg of the paddle.After the last leg you will be collected by the guide and brought back to Kalbarri. This is a fantastic family outing and recommended for all age groups.

We thought this was going to be a fun 2 hour adventure, well the tinnie is a tinnie with a little mercury motor. For novice people the outboard is fine as you are only allowed a top speed of 5knots. Found the tinnie very hard...More

Fantastic canoe safari from start to finish. The off road journey to get to the river had its own fascination. Driving through dirt track (belt up - great fun!! ) and bush and spotting the occasional wildlife, rock wallabies, kangaroos, wild bulls etc. Our wonderful...More

Hiring a small boat and travelling up the Murchison river was a good way to spend a few hours. The river was calm when we were there and easy to navigate our way around. Nice to take a picnic to share along the shaddup banks....More

Dan was a great guide - very professional and knowledgeable about the river and surrounds. Very scenic trip down river and great when the wind and tide are in your favour! Great cooked breakfast too. Value for money

After a short but comprehensive briefing we set off in our motor boat. We had great fun with great views. We anchored up and relaxed before a spectacular return to the start point. A great experience and so much fun.

Hi, the water is flat but when we did it the river was very full, lots of eddies and fast flowing so check the water levels. Canoes fitted 4 people but obviously the heavier the canoe the harder you work. Everyone has to... More
