We had a fantastic day with Mark from Life's an Adventure on Sydney Harbour, starting at Lavender Bay and heading under the bridge and around to an isolated beach just below Taronga Zoo. Mark (and his expert offsider Sienna - thanks for the lollies!) supplied everything we needed and gave us expert coaching in everything… Mark's knowledge of the harbour and its weather meant we kept out of the wind while hearing great stories about the history and life on this marvellous harbour. We were beginners but felt comfortable and safe with Mark. Great fun, we'll be back for more adventures!
“Kayaking on Australia's most famous & beautiful harbour” A wonderful enlightening experience that was well coordinated. Guides were considerate of everyone, creating a positive group experience. Even the least experienced kayaker was given a good day out. Highly recommended for tourists or even local who want to see their harbour from a different perspective. Thanks to Mark & Andrew for a good day out for me & my Wife. Your attentiveness was appreciated.
“Sydney harbour kayak”. We did the Sydney harbour kayak today and could not have been happier with our experience. The paddle under the bridge is pretty amazing and gives you a very different perspective of one of Sydney's famous landmarks. Everything was provided, all we needed to bring was a sense of adventure! Thanks very much to Mark and the guys in our group for a very enjoyable and memorable day. Highly recommended!
