Great experience

The tour is run by fun and friendly guys and left a great impression. It was all fun, but in particular seeing turtles and snorkelling on the reef were spectacular.

Best tour and guide!

Spent 10 days in Australia doing plenty of sightseeing, and, I must say, booking this tour with our guide Andy was the highlight of our trip! Had a fantastic time kayaking and snorkeling in some of the most beautifulcrystal clear waters in Palm Cove area. Andy knew exactly where to stop to see turtles, the best jump off spots to see coral and fish while snorkeling, and was an all-around genuine nice gentleman easy to get along with. I highly recommend Andy with Pacific Watersports!

Great kayaking experience

We had such a great time kayaking with Andy. He’s very passionate and professional and wanted all of us to enjoy our experience. We saw turtles along the way, beautiful corals and Andy even picked out some fresh oysters for us. An absolute must do if you’re looking to go kayaking in Cairns.
