We joined School of Yak for a winter tour in Newcastle. Glen the coach brought us to kayak along the Hunter River. We went further deep into the beautiful mangroves creek. Glen is a friendly and experienced coach with passion on the waters and the nature. The trip was enjoyable and we feel safe under his guidance amidst the tidal waves. The scenery inside the mangroves creek is quite a hidden gemstone in Newcastle. It was simply awesome and we feel like one of those national geographic moments when we lift our heads to see the mangroves on both sides down the creek. His sharing on his life experience had a lot of inspiration to us. Would definitely recommend this to anyone, beginners or not, who like to have a taste on the other side of this lovely city.

Right away our experience was amazing. Being from the United States, we didn't have the best means of transportation, so Glenn picked us up to go kayaking. We went to a beautiful location in the Hunter Wetlands National Park and Glenn got us prepared for a cold day on the water. Even with it being winter here, the animal life was amazing. From pelicans to eagles to jellyfish, there was never a dull moment. Glenn was an amazing tour guide who knew almost everything there was to know about the nature in that area. After our hours of being on the water, we made our way back to land, packed the gear away, and Glenn drove us right to the train station so that we could make our commute back to Sydney. I highly recommend School of Yak; it was really an unforgettable experience!

We had a really memorable day with Glen on the water. The kayaks are very comfortable and Glen is an excellent guide. The areas bird life is amazing, we watched a display by a group of White-bellied Sea Eagles that was spectacular and the paddle back to base as the sun was setting was magical.

Who knew Australia's largest protected wetland was 10 min north of Newcastle? Glenn, whose life has been colorful enough to rate a run on the ABC's Conversations podcast, will take you through majestic mangrove forests on the huge tides. Go!

I thoroughly recommend School of Yak if you are in or around the Newcastle area and would like to kayak. Glen was enthusiastic, professional - obviously highly experienced -and great company! I will definitely be doing this again!
