  • I cannot overstate how amazing it was to see a new dawn from the waters of Sydney Harbour. For all you who identify as “not a morning person”, as I do, the effort of a predawn rise is more than worth....  more »

  • I have never Kayaked before and this was my first time ever. It was a walk in the park :) The instructors were very helpful, informative and so easy to talk to. They made the experience a whole lot easier to get through and everyone had fun. The experience from beginning to end was one that I will be back to do over and over again. The image of Sydney Harbour is one that you can never get enough of, Amazing. The water in the harbour was so still and peaceful. So the kayaking adventure started at Lavender bay and we travelled a fair distance around the harbour then under and past the bridge and back. Several stops along the way allowing everyone to take pics and instructor Ben to share his knowledge of the harbour with the group. The Sunrise was also a beautiful view. I can go on but the overall experience was amazing and awesome. I highly recommend all groups, couples and teams to experience this activity together. These guys will not fail at providing the perfect service.
  • Wow !! Wow !! Truly fantastic. Skip the rest, this is the best. Professional, fun and easy, what more could you want and the coffee is awesome also. Laura and Ben put on a fantastic tour. It’s breathtaking, amazing, fun and safe. I thoroughly enjoyed my sunrise kayaking tour so much so, I have made a note to do it again when next in Sydney. Thank you guys. Loved every minute of it.
  • Great experience this morning. Laura and Ben care about what they do and it shows in their preparation and instruction. They keep it fun and most importantly safe in the busy waters of the Harbour. Laura knows that people would like to have some photos of their time on the water and she is constantly looking for opportunities to take them. Kyle helped coordinate a lot of our movements and transitions in and out of the water and I enjoyed his input on the area and other things to do. These guys promote healthy waters through their clean up efforts and they deserve to grow this business into something even better with more options and activities. Give them your business and you won’t be disappointed.
  • A must do Sydney experience! My wife and I did this as part of our Australia trip. Although we had not done much kayaking before, Laura and Dani were great and really put us at ease. Being out on the water was amazing and seeing the sunrise over the Harbour Bridge was something that neither of us will ever forget!
  • Waking up at 4am is a lot easier when you know this sunrise activity is in store! Had a great time kayaking under the bridge and in a few bays. The crew were down to earth and took loads of photos for us. This was one of my best memories of my Sydney trip.
