My daughters and I really enjoyed our kayaking and snorkelling tour. Was definitely nervous as I was on single Kayak but not a problem.

We saw plenty of fish, it was an absolute blast. Guides were lovely, great experience to share with my daughters. Literally didn't stop laughing and it was nice stopping to see the soldier crabs on way back. Definitely recommend doing this experience.

Highly recommend doing this tour. Beautiful sunny day lots of activity happening all around.

Will be doing this again when my family comes over for a holiday. Unfortunately, it was busy on the water, was a little choppy and the water was murky and couldn’t see any marine life however our tour guide was awesome and the afternoon was great considering. Thanks!

Recommend! My boyfriend and I had great fun in Quick Escape Tour! They organised the pickup uber from surfer paradise to the meeting point. We enjoyed kayaking very much and the weather was perfect! However, the water is not that clear for snorkelling and not too many fishes. The coaches were helpful and friendly. We are satisfied with this tour and the price was reasonable as it includes pick-up and drop-off, kayaking and snorkelling.
