We did the full day kayaking in the harbour and honestly the best fun I've had in a long time. The two guides were amazing - funny, knowledgeable and explained everything so we felt more than comfortable in the water - we hadn't done anything like this before. The lunch on Shark Island was delicious. To be honest I was expecting some sandwiches and a can of coke and then we get there and there is a spread of amazing yummy food. We even had a bithday cake for the two birthday boys on the tour with us - one being my husband. It's just this personal touch that really made the day. Couldn't recommend them anymore and look forward to booking other adventures with them in the future.

“Everyone should do this - Brilliant.” Four hours on beautiful Sydney Harbour does not get much better! Pauls' knowledge of the Harbour foreshore and coves was great and informative. The paddling was at your own pace, peaceful and we stayed amazingly dry. The kayaks were tandem and very stable. My husband and I are in our mid 50's and found the going very easy. Lunch was more like a banquet of salads, smoked salmon and ham, fresh bread rolls, and Juice, all beautifully presented. Sydney Harbour sparkled, yachts of all sizes were criss-crossing the waters, sea-planes were landing and taking off, and we had the best seat in the house (kayak) to see it all. Thankyou so much Paul and Life's an Adventure, we had a great time, and you will certainly see us again.
