I have been kayaking since I was 8 years of age. I love all water sports including sea & white water, slalom, canoe polo, sailing & snorkeling. I have 45 years of kayaking experience and have paddled all around the world including New Zealand, Antarctica and Ireland. I wanted to work for myself and thought why not run a business that I love and understand. I have both sea kayaking and outdoor education qualifications. A degree in Arts (Recreation) and a Masters in Social Policy. I have been recognized 3 years in a row for a high achievement award from Trip Advisor (5 out of 5) and rated 4.9 on Google Reviews. I am a local to Melbourne for the last 54 yrs. I have been operating a kayaking business in Melbourne for the last 17 years.

Our guide team is comprised of myself, Dane, Jacqui, Tristan and Cam.

This sea kayaking experience on the Bay was amazing! Our guide Dane was so friendly and informative - he really looked after us all. Being a beginner I felt very safe indeed. Saw so many cute penguins under St. Kilda pier. The gourmet roll with the lot was really tasty and the gluten free salad option looked amazing. Would highly recommend this great tour! I definitely am doing this again !

Amazing tour! A great way to see St Kilda foreshore from a different perspective and get up and close with the penguins! Our guide Dane, was great, his friendly attitude and experience really made the trip memorable. Based on my experience, I would definitely like to try their other tours.

Our St Kilda kayaking experience was so much fun, I learnt how to paddle, steer a sea kayak and my gluten free lunch option was delicious. Would happily go again :)
