We had a really enjoyable, personalised experience with Darcy. Any fear of not being able to stand up was taken away immediately. This experience was relaxing and was topped off with Darcy’s local knowledge of the area and his hospitality. Would recommend this for any group, kids, families - in our case a girls weekend! PS Hi Darcy! Thanks!

Great bunch of guys, they were very friendly, patient and aware of what was going on in the group. Made sure everyone was along for the ride. Doug and team were great fun and knowledgeable. Id call out all by name but I dint catch everyones name. Werent able to see any dolphins sadly but that's just something that can happen.

Amazing experience!! Such a thrill!! My instructor Selwyn was so lovely and explained everything very clearly which made me a lot more calm before the dive.

Very well organised, great communication and both Minyon falls and the kayaking were spectacular. Would definitely recommend!

Amazing experience and very experienced, helpful team guided us, appreciated all efforts they have put in!
