It's great to hear such excellent feedback, small groups can be lots of fun. The weather did work really well for your trip of course Alec is an excellent guide. Hope to see you back again some day.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Salty Dog Kayaking. It was so nice that the guide took pictures throughout the morning and later posted them on Facebook. We would recommend this to anyone looking for an active tour at Airlie Beach!

One of Salty Dog's tours is a must if you're visiting Airlie. As we went in summer they don't run the full day tours (which is what I wanted to do originally) because it's just too hot, but the half-day was heaps of fun. A...More

Hayley and Neil were great in helping myself and my girlfriend organise our first self guided sea kayak trip around the Whitsundays. Their local knowledge which they gladly imparted as well as their equipment was excellent. Would definitely recommend these guys and use them again.

We loved the half day kayak with Becky. We were lucky enough to see a turtle and had a relaxing swim. This is such a peaceful, fun activity. I can't recommend this more.
