Would recommend for everyone. Had high hopes that the two decade nightmare would end when told we would be in the two seater "Divorce Canoe", but alas this was not the case. Unfortunately Glenn knows his stuff, and knew that the wind in our first location would make it too easy for us to put up a sail and ignore each other, so took us to the tragically gorgeous Dora Creek instead. The lack of wind and beautiful surroundings made us unable to argue with each other and instead improved our communication by admiring the scenery and wildlife. Glenn's instruction was so on point that even when a passing speedboat's wash could have ended our 20 year epic in the drink, we cruised through with nary a spray. Not even some foul stench near the factory could divert our attention from the wonderful Dusky Cormorants, White-bellied Sea-eagles, and Yellow-breasted Robins. The forecasted increased wind on the return was not in our sails, and neither she nor I had the bluster to propell our boat with calculated insults and swipes at each other as the beautiful day had taken our breath away

Visiting a friend in the area for her birthday and was looking for something fun and special to do. Glenn was a fantastic tour guide. Unfortunately weather made our initial launch site a poor choice. Glenn sorted out a new location and had us on the water for our adventure. Two Mums, with a history of some young adventure under our belts, we were a little nervous but Glenn was very encouraging and even had us sailing our kayaks downwind! Wish we had a photo but it requires 2 hands. Glenn is such a wealth of local information.

It was our first time trying Kayaking. But Glenn made us feel really comfortable and it was such an enjoyable experience along the harbour. Glenn explained views and sites of newcaslte as we kayak along the harbour as we are not from Newcastle. I highly recommend Glenn to anyone who wish to try out kayaking. I personally thank you Glenn and wish to see you next time!

We had breakfast with the birds and saw tons of birds including nesting eagles. Great instruction, wonderful stories and delicious breakfast in the beautiful Hunter river national park. Glenn provides a wonderful excursion with nature and local history. Great value for money!

We met Glenn at Carrington Beach and dawdled up Throsby Creek for an hour or so. He pointed out different species of bird, told us about the history of the creek and really engaged with my two young children. The kids had a blast and I really enjoyed it too.
