We could not fault the excellent service, quality of the equipment and friendly helpful advice. The creek is a pleasant place to spend a couple of hours kayaking both up and down the creek with plenty of nice spots to stop and have a swim. Reasonable rates of hire. Would highly recommend Smooth Waters Kayak Hire.

We had the BEST day ever thanks to Smooth Water Kayak hire. We hired a double kayak and a SUP board for my husband, myself and our 7 year old daughter.
Mike has excellent customer service skills and was very helpful and kind. From the time we booked on the phone (an hour before coming), Mike was patient, cheerful, very polite, gave us ideas on what to do, where to go, where to stop and best way for the tide. Mike took time to explain everything to us so nicely and patiently- we have never come across such exemplary customer service skills in Australia. My husband was new to the whole SUP board and Mike took the time to explain how to manoeuvre the board and even allowed us an extra few hours free of charge :).T
he equipment was great quality, easy to use and Mike was just fantastic helping us down to the creek with everything. Would definitely recommend this business and have already told all my friends. We will be back very soon thanks to your lovely attitude and great service :) Keep up the good work Mike :)

PS- the river was fabulous too! :)

We had a wonderful afternoon out on the creek. Mike so kindly got us organised with when to come and what to bring for the best experience and was very patient, taking time to make sure we knew what we were doing and putting all our unfounded anxieties to bed. (First-timers!) We’ll be coming back! Thank you for such a great experience and making us so welcome.

Smoothwaters were awesome, from the first phone call to book, right through until the end of our lovely relaxing Kayak adventure.
They knew their stuff, were easy to deal with and gave us great advice about tides, direction to go, how far we should go given our experience level and places to stop along the way and have lunch. They ensured we knew that we could take phones securely in the watertight compartment so we could take pictures.
We felt very comfortable heading off on our own (2 adults and 2 teenagers) for a few hours, they even gave us advice on good places for lunch.
Well worth a visit - we felt like we had a lovely relaxed afternoon away from all the hustle and bustle. Lovely people and great little business. We would recommend to anyone.

This is such a fantastic place if you love watersports - kayaking, SUP. The creek is amazing and we saw rays, fish jumping out of the water and a lot of waterbirds on our tour towards inlands. The owner is extremely helpful with instructions, tips and local knowledge, the equipment is spotless and there's parking, toilet, changing room at the premises as well. We will definitely come back, even with our 1.5 year old toddler for a kayak trip.

Smoothwaters is a local treasure. Location is excellent with comfortable with easy access to the beautiful Tallebudgera estuary and beautiful surroundings and abundant wildlife. Mike and Sue are gracious hosts and generous with their knowledge. The water is crystal clear and warm with miles of clean sandy beaches. This operation is at their lovely home so your car is safe and you are safe.
Enjoy your day knowing that you are supporting local businesses and nice people.

The other half and I decided we'd like to try combining our love of fishing with kayaking. We love going down to Tallebudgerra Creek to fish and were able to find Smoothwaters right on the Creek to hire a couple of kayaks from last Saturday. Mike, the proprietor, is just awesome. Very knowledgeable about the gear, the Creek, fishing, the local eateries. Couldn't be more helpful.

The price is really good at $25 for an hour and a half per kayak and Mike is pretty flexible if you want to go over that. The boats are some of the latest available on the market and are in good nick. The business has shady, on premise parking so you don't need to worry about leaving your car on the road. There's also a toilet and bathroom available if needed.

Kayaking on Tallebudgerra Creek is a lovely experience especially for the beginner. Lots of great things to see and the Creek is very kayak friendly.

Smoothwaters is definitely one to try if you want to hire a kayak down the Gold Coast where you don't need to go on a guided tour.
