To ensure the safety of you and our guides we:

  • Have updated our cancellation policy.
  • Restrict tour groups to 10, unless all participants are from the same family/friendship group

What we're doing to keep you safe.

Our COVID-Safe measures include

  • Performing additional cleaning and disinfecting of our kayaks, equipment, and vehicles, focusing on high touch surfaces.
  • Disinfectant wipes will be available upon request for anyone wishing to give their equipment extra attention.
  • Masks to be worn on all bus/car transport by passengers and staff. (Please BYO masks to avoid waste).
  • Hand sanitiser is provided during vehicle transport on all tours.
  • Contact details are collected to enable contact tracing. (QR code or written contact tracing forms)
  • Staff have been directed not to come to the workplace if they are unwell.

Your responsibility as our guest.

It is essential that you do not hire kayaks or participate in our tours if you:
