Best Byron nature activity
, Aug 2022
This was one of the most memorable activities I’ve undertaken. We kayaked near to the lighthouse where we came close to two whales - truly an amazing experience. We had excellent guides who were patient and knowledgeable.

Knowledgeable and helpful but a smaller group would be better
, Jan 2022
Great understanding of ocean tides and marine life in the Byron Bay area, and also had some good facts of the surrounding areas. Would have loved to have been in a smaller group as 27 people were just too many to allow for great experience. In saying that, the team were friendly and helpful.
Amazing !!!!

Our trip was amazing!!! Loved every moment of it!! Our tour guide, friendly and the whole experience very accessible to a newbie at kayaking. Thank you!!! We’ll be back!

Super morning out. Loved the professionalism and guidance of the warm and friendly instructors. Took us out the back of the surf and we were fortunate enough to see 2 large pods of dolphins. They jumped out of the water as well. Sensational! These guys are great and and very easy going but you also feel very secure and safe.

What great timing to be 30m away from breaching whales..listening to them breathe and having fun in the water. A great day out and high five to the tour guides..Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Fun Adventure with Dolphin encounter
, Jun 2019
I was lucky enough to get a tour with just one other tourist and the tour guide. We saw a couple of dolphins, heard whales and maybe also a shark. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and told us fun stories about the area and gave us insigthful information about the marine life.

The crew at Byron bay dolphin sea tours were fantastic. friendly, approachable and informative. They ensured all participants were safe with good training before we headed out. We went out approx 1.5 klm from the shore and to our amazement encountered whales very close to us. They even swam right underneath us. We saw turtles, seals, unfortunately no dolphins, however, the whales did it for us. Unfortunately my Mrs got a bit sea sick, she kept going until the end and we got a tow in from one of the facilitators. Highly recommend this adventure. Brooksy and the team were fantastic. Thanks guys. A memorable experience. Beno and Shar.
