We were a group of 4 and had a spectacular day with Sean! He took us to special places we would never find on our on. I really enjoyed the relaxed pace and the chance to canoe, visit a secluded watering hole, go for a walk "in the bush" on the cliffs (gorgeous views!), and LOVED the tour/tasting at Fraser... More

I picked this tour because it offered a variety of activities including the must visit winery experience. It was a great day out starting with a paddle on Margaret River. What a great start. The tour guide and owner/operator Sean was super knowledgeable and passionate about the area and treated the small group to loads of fun and a great... More

Sean our tour guide and owner of The Margaret River Discovery Tour business was extremely knowledgeable about the Margaret River region and is passionate both about the region and showing the highlights of the region to tourists.

Thanks for the kind words. You know so many people visit Margaret River but leave without even seeing the river? Yes, there is a river here and yes it is very beautiful. You have now joined the privileged few who can say you've paddled it. I hope the memories of your day on the river and on the Cape to... More

We went on the Discovery Tour with Sean end November, and it was a blast. Even my mom-in-law who had a shoulder problem enjoyed the canoe trip. Much of the highlights have already been mentioned, so I'll just give my shout out to Sean for a tour well done. We are already planning for our trip this year and the... More

Sean has extensive knowledge of all the things Margaret River has to offer. His passion for the region shines through on this amazing tour. It was hard to pick a highlight between the canoeing the Margaret River, private lunch in the cellar of a top winery and the other great activities. We really enjoyed it all!

This tour was like no other! If you're looking for a tour that doesn't feel like a tour with a small group of like minded travellers, look no further. Sean made sure to accommodate for everyone's needs and abilities and made for a fun day I'll never forget. Who can say they canoed on the iconic Margaret River, as well... More

Thanks Jenna, I always call the Discovery Tour 'the tour for people who don't do tours'. It's so cool you picked up on that. I try to deliver the experience I would want to do on my holiday - a great range of experiences shared with a handful of like-minded people and of course some exceptional wine and food! Glad...

Brought my family from Canada, including my grandmother, to do the 5 1/2 hour discovery tour, and they had a great time. The canoeing was very fun and easy to do, and we saw tons of wildlife. Definitely a highlight. The winery and lunch was excellent and Sean was very informative about that and everything else we did! Our group... More

Cheers Patti, So glad you all loved the canoeing. It's one of my favourite things to do too. Some people are nervous or think it will be too much hard work, but when they realize how calm the river is, and that they won't fall in or get wet, they relax and enjoy the stunning tranquility. Best wishes for the... More

A simply fantastic day out! Didn't feel like a tour but more like hanging out with a lime minded bunch of people and doing some really cool stuff. The canoeing was a definite highlight as was the walk along the Cape to Cape track. Cannot recommend this more a solid A+++ Thanks again Shaun/shawn/sean your a champion. Lucas

Hi Lucas, I'll answer to any of those three! Thanks for the great feedback on the Discovery tour.

We have traveled extensively and the day with "Disco Sean" was simply one of the best tours. The day was very full without being tiring, we enjoyed everything about it. The different subjects, knowledge and the winery experience was amazing. Sean is a funny knowledgable guy who has a great passion for his area and country, that is a joy... More
