Booked this Adventure but two days before was informed by the company that the booking system made a mistake tried to book another time but the confirmation came through 20 minutes before the adventure started therefore we were unable to participate. This is the second time with this company that I have been let down. Organised a large group to abseil at Kangaroo point last January and it got rescheduled several times to the point that we just Declined any future booking. I thought I would give them another go and they’ve let me down again

Would had been nice if more skilled could go with other skilled. Or separate from the group. Sat waiting for others some of the time. I will hire separately next time and go alone not in a group. But was very enjoyable.

What a fantastic experience. Mark was so easy going and a great tour guide. Highly recommend this to everyone. Can’t wait to return to do the evening kayaking.
Nice Relaxing Kayak

Great experience, nice and relaxing kayak on the 1.5 hour tour down the river and back, great staff , would reccomend if you have time while in Brisbane
Too short
, May 2019
This didn't really live up to expectations, we basically spend about 1 hour on the water, this consisted of hugging the bank from the base up to the Storey Bridge and then back to the pier. I expected the trip to be a guided tour where the staff actually pass on information about what we are passing/ seeing, but apart from a very short brief below the bridge this did not happen. Not worth the money in our opinion

What a night. We enjoyed every bit of the tour. We were lucky to see the South Bank fire works, listen to a few sounds at the Brisbane Jazz club and enjoy a beautiful warm night kayak. The BBQ was delicious too. Amazing experience

Staff friendly and helpful. Very enjoyable afternoon. My teens especially liked the switching kayaks while on water. Stewart was a great guide. He was very patient with novices.

I really enjoyed this tour! I went on my own to do this and the instructor was very welcoming and chatty with me. I didn't get the best weather for my tour, but it was still a nice experience none the less. I think I'd recommend people to do this with friends. I was on my own and although I did enjoy it, it does get a little lonely on the water when you don't have a friend to share the experience with. Especially when you're a bit slower than others on the tour!! It's a cool thing to do in Brisbane - definitely recommend.
