We are beyond excited and proud to have won Australia's Best Adventure Tourism Operator at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards recently. We love what we do and we work hard to ensure everyone's kayaking and Tasmanian experience is a memorable one, and we are so proud of our team being recognised with this award.
Tasmania as a whole shone at these awards and we stood beaming broadly with our fellow tourism operators as we celebrated seven gold awards and a grand total of 17 awards overall when you add in silver and bronze. With so many extraordinary and diverse expeirences waiting for you in our small island state, why wouldn't you Holiday at Home in Tasmania this year.
Feedback from our Southwest expeditioners regularly states, “would have loved more time to explore Melaleuca”. We’ve listened and now our 7-day expeditions are 8 days but still with 7 days of kayaking! The first night is spent at Melaleuca with time to explore this historic wilderness area before setting off to explore Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey. Find out more on our Southwest expeditions HERE.
We believe that sea kayaking is an activity that can be enjoyed by everyone, but before you head out on your own it is essential you have basic paddling skills to ensure the paddling is safe, fun and injury free. We have lessons for if you are new to kayaking, looking to increase your paddling skills or you want to perfect that eskimo roll. Find our more HERE.
