Paddling with Matt was definitely the highlight of my Sydney visit! So much fun and such a great way to see the harbour, the goat island, the harbour bridge and the opera house! Matt is really knowledgeable and told me a lot about the history of the harbour. Definitely worth it and I would recommend it to everyone! I hope I can come back one day. Thank you Matt for this amazing day!

Highlight of my time in Sydney. Kayaking is a great way to see the Harbour and get amazing views (and quality pics) of the bridge. Matt is really interesting and a cool to be on a paddle with. Great trip will definitely go again when I'm next in Sydney.

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!

Matt was so nice!! And so cool! Taught us tips about the kayaks, and some history and showed us some AMAZING view. 10/10 would kayak again!

From start to finish it was a great day. I could not recommend enough.
