    I have now been on a number of Sydney kayaking trips with Sam. He is professional, capable and delightful company. He has always demonstrated great care and his love of kayaking is infectious. On trips around the Northern Beaches and along the Nepean River he pointed out wildlife on shore and in the water, and one time we were privileged to watch a Sea Eagle soaring overhead before landing in a nearby tree. Kayaking is about enjoying the Sydney climate and beautiful environment up close and at a gentle pace. What’s more, since many parts of Sydney can only be seen from the water, kayaking gives you a perspective many people aren’t lucky enough to see. A five star tour leader!

    I can wholeheartedly recommend kayaking trips with Sam McLeod as leader. My first experience as one of a group of kayakers was with a bunch of mixed skill. We met at Rose Bay and Sam began by instructing us on land about the do’s and don’ts of kayaking, which immediately made me feel safe and confident. On the water he was there for everyone: alert to each person’s progress by moving amongst the group and giving helpful advice when needed. Sam is friendly and approachable and this set the tone for the trip. Our picnic lunch at Watson’s Bay was delicious and we paddled back to Rose Bay now a cohesive group, chattering amongst ourselves, relaxed, pleasantly weary and in my case – a relative newbie to kayaking – pretty proud of myself!

    My partner & I spent a day kayaking on the Tallowa Dam in the beautiful Kangaroo Valley with Sam

    Sam’s knowledge of the area & his helpful, caring attitude to the whole group was invaluable.

    During the paddle we stopped for several breaks to swim & take in the peaceful enviroment. Healthy snacks &  lunch were provided.   Dinner was a gourmet’s delight.  All made the better for the serene camping site, where we spent the night in a comfortable tent.

    I highly recommend Sam’s kayaking tours.

    Everything is provided,  just bring yourself

    The time  spent kayaking on the Pittwater from Avalon to the beautiful Salvation Creek with Sam was a real treat

    Sam’s tips and induction  on using the kayak & safety  was professional & helpful and his knowledge & stories of the area were enlightening.

    A great tour for any age group

    What a way to spend a day!  Looking  forward to the next excursion

    Thanks Sam

    We did the  Nepean bush paddle with Sam and what a treat it was! This is one for the nature lover.  The Nepean Gorge is just beautiful – so peaceful.  It’s an easy paddle with no strong currents or waves. Sam pointed out lots of different birds and we saw a flock of birds taking off across the water. The one is a battery-charger. Highly recommended.

    I loved the Manly lunch paddle.  The guide told us really interesting stuff about the convict history of the beaches near Little Manly, and the quarantine station.  Then we paddled across to see the stone houses perched right on the edge of the cliffs opposite North Head. We had a bit of fun dodging the Manly Ferry and paddled across to Fairlight.  We didn’t see any penguins that day, but they do live around there.  Lots of natural rock formations and birds. Great fun!

    Shark Island

    We had a ball on this paddle.  It has a bit of everything.  You get to paddle past multimillion-dollar boats and houses, and have lunch on an unpopulated island in the middle of Sydney Harbour!

    Great food, great views and Sam is a really good guide.  He had lots of interesting facts to share about the harbour and its history. And a little bit of gossip about some of the people who have lived around the harbour.

    The Twin beaches paddle is is a great days paddle.  So much variety and so much history.  You get to see a shipwreck, the ruins of an old church on tiny Bar Island, the water access only communities on the river, and lots of birdlife as well.  There are enough stops to stretch your legs and take a walk, or swim in the river.  Twin Beaches is a lovely picnic spot.  Be warned – Sam will see and hear birds you never knew existed.  You’ll get to hear about them too.  We even saw a young diamond python (minding its own business). Highly recommend this paddle. Lovely way to spend the day.

    We recently did an overnight guided canoe adventure with Sydney Kayak on the beautiful Shoalhaven gorge (Tallowah dam) near Kangaroo Valley.

    As first timers, it took awhile to get to grips with the tandem canoe, but our guide (Sam) was well versed in setting up the kayak and giving pointers as we went along.

    The whole trip was very well organised and extremely well catered. Once we arrived at the selected camping site it was a case of relax, and enjoy the fine food and magic surroundings.

    The weekend remains a very memorable adventure.

    We were fortunate to take a trip across the Pittwater by kayak, from Palm Beach to Resolute Beach on West Head.

    The trip was a custom paddle organised with Sydney Kayak and was very enjoyable. The scenery is picturesque and the trip was made very easy by our guides thorough knowledge of the area and assessment of our abilities. The breakfast was excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sydney Kayak as a great way to see the natural beauty of this part of Sydney.
