Amazing experience .The staff is friendly and nice and the water was really good 🤣 The experience is a must-do if you visit Brisvegas.

The staff was extremely friendly and very nice. We had a great time. Sad that the people we were with were not friendly at all but that is another story. I recommend trying this kayak adventure on the Brisbane River! It is worth it 😀 Thank you to our guide Sophia and for your kindness when I fell in the water 😂😂
