Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We went on the 2pm tour and the sun setting was absolutely gorgeous with the dolphins and whales swimming past in the the light 😍 we got super close to a few whales and they put on a spectacular show! Would absolutely recommend this tour.

    Organised. Friendly. Gian was overly and made my teenage girls feel comfortable. Good equipment condition. Good dive site just 5 minutes offshore. Only annoying thing is no free parking nearby (10min walk).

    This tour was amazing. Interesting facts, great guides and awesome kayaking. The guides were so helpful and made it all feel like a breeze! Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any dolphins but was offered another trip again. Great time and great fun. Thank you

    "A very professionally run trail ride with safety and welfare of riders and horses clearly a priority. I would highly recommend this experience while in Byron Bay

    Our family absolutely loved the surfing lessons here at Byron bay. We had such a friendly instructor called Guy, who taught us all the tricks and tips especially for us beginners. It was such a friendly and fun community and enjoyed every bit. We went through all the safety tips then set out into the water. It was super safe and definitely recommend.

    I’ve booked 5 days of group lessons with Kool Katz.

    I definitely had a good time! Terry really tries to give everyone an amazing day of surfing. Every single day I’ve joined everyone was able to stand up.

    Because of sickness I wasn’t able to participate on my last day and Terry was so kid to refund me for it. Thanks again!

    What an amazing whale watching experience! We were unlucky with the weather on our first attempt but we were given plenty of notice and managed to go out the very next day. We were very reassured by all the great communication, advice and safety precautions the team send prior to the trip.

    The trip itself was unbelievable. The crew were amazing at spotting whales, dolphins and even a turtle and a ray. We had 3 young kids (5, 8, 11) who were so excited to see so many whales come up and swim past.

    Whilst there’s no guarantees we were lucky enough to see a mum and calf breaching above the water which was absolutely amazing. We can’t thank the team enough for an incredible morning on the bay.

    We’ll be back to try the other experiences!

    Really great team super helpful and supportive throughout lessons!!
    Did five lessons and only 2 (one each) pictures sadly which we had to pay for a package of them and wasn’t worth paying for.

    My husband gave me a ride in a balloon for our anniversary last week. Our ride started at the Channon Showgrounds and we landed on a farm in Eltham. The views were spectacular. Our pilot was extremely obliging and the support crew were all passionate about the region!!! Highly recommended!!!

    We did a surf lesson with Gaz and Sam and had the best time. They made sure we learnt the correct techniques, taught us surf etiquette, surf safety and got us out there helping us catch every wave. They have a great sense of humor and made the whole lesson so much fun. Highly recommend them if this is something you’ve been thinking of doing whilst in Byron.
