10/10 will recommend (as a first timer)! What a lekke outing, Terry’s insight and the swim half way topped the already awesome paddle out at sea. Will be back for snorkelling, cant wait☺️

Epic experience, incredible value for money. We spent over 2 hours paddling around one of the most beautiful marine habitats in the world. It was a relaxed, fun morning. Strongly recommend.

I previously went with another company who went quite far out to sea which was a bit daunting for me and didn’t get to see much ocean life, so I preferred Terrys route along the boulders bay beach. It is easy enough for beginners and more enjoyable seeing all the ocean life amongst the kelp and in between the rocks. Terry shares a wealth of knowledge about the ecosystem in the bay and holds a great respect for the penguins and dassies (which we learned are actually related to the elephant family!) in the bay. Thank you so much!

Loved this special trip, appreciating the value of our ocean ecosystem is so much for powerful when experiencing its beauty. It feels good to know the money you are spending is going to this important cause.

This experience was extremely satisfying. Terry was amazing, great information, super knowledgeable, friendly and encouraging. The two hours went by fast, and the weather was also excellent. I will be back!
