Very nice people, you feel in good hands and everything is explained clearly. You should have made the flight over Sydney when you are here. It's a completely different experience and perspective to see the city from above.

Very easy to locate, staff was super friendly and helpful! It's a solo ride which was actually kind of nice because you just get to paddle to where you want and stop at the beached and explore! Great experience!

It was easy to book and pay. Communication was great. One suggestion: it would be nice to have transport service from city center and back.

Great views of the city, harbour bridge and opera house. Nice cruise along the coast line back to the airport as well.
