Seeing the story bridge from the water

What a fantastic experience. Mark was so easy going and a great tour guide. Highly recommend this to everyone. Can’t wait to return to do the evening kayaking.

Too short

This didn't really live up to expectations, we basically spend about 1 hour on the water, this consisted of hugging the bank from the base up to the Storey Bridge and then back to the pier. I expected the trip to be a guided tour where the staff actually pass on information about what we are passing/ seeing, but apart from a very short brief below the bridge this did not happen. Not worth the money in our opinion

I really enjoyed this tour! I went on my own to do this and the instructor was very welcoming and chatty with me. I didn't get the best weather for my tour, but it was still a nice experience none the less. I think I'd recommend people to do this with friends. I was on my own and although I did enjoy it, it does get a little lonely on the water when you don't have a friend to share the experience with. Especially when you're a bit slower than others on the tour!! It's a cool thing to do in Brisbane - definitely recommend.
