I arranged to rent a single kayak for a morning. The kayak was delivered to the boat ramp at South Durras, where I was met by the owner who went through the briefing and instructions efficiently but thoroughly. I am a fairly experienced flat-water kayaker but still picked up a couple of tips during the briefing about how to paddle... More

Thanks for your kind review. Is good to hear that you enjoyed Durras Lake as much as we do. The buoys can be a bit confusing. The yellow ones mark the marine sanctuary where you are not to fish. The only navigational buoys are right at the start of the paddle to keep boats off of Bob's rock. If you... More

I scheduled a lake kayak tour on our last day in South Durras and it couldn't have been better! My initial contact with Carolyn and Phil to book my tour was great. They were both on top of the weather conditions in the area and recommended a perfect morning. They were very responsive and professional. Having never kayaked in an... More

Thanks for your lovely review. Sometimes we see Sea Eagles and sometimes we don't, (but most of the time we do!!) You were extra lucky to see one with a fish in its beak. A pleasure taking you out. Maybe next time you will be ready for an ocean trip? More

My son and I were over from the UK, and with a friend from Sydney drove down to meet up with Phil at Batemans Bay - for a few hours of sea kayaking. Phil was very flexible and accommodated our unknown arrival time. The safety training was first class and he accompanied us into the bay, giving us appropriate training,... More

We hired two single Kayaks for half a day and it was excellent. The lake is very large and to get to the most distant point you would need nearly to have the kayak all day and be used to paddling distances. The water was very flat the day we went and it was ideal. We took picnic snack and... More

We hired canoes and set off to explore the serene Lake Durras. The owner was very helpful and the hire fee was not expensive. We really enjoyed the experience, great family time.

We wanted to book a sunset paddle for our daughter's birthday. When we called, Carolyn checked the weather report and told us there was a forecast for wind and rain around 5:00 PM, so she suggested that a morning trip would be better for us. As it turned out, the weather was perfect at 10:00 AM and we went for... More

We liked to do the trip and children had fun. Landscape ist beautifull. But: Fotos dont show that water isnt deep at all. Sometimes you stick and have to walk. So this part of the thin is quiet unsatisfaying.

Hi there, We are really glad the kids had fun. Lake Durras is (at the moment) a coastal tidal lake. Sometimes it is open to the ocean and affected by tidal changes and sometimes it is closed to the ocean and fills up with rain water and can be quite deep. It is always navigable even when quite a low... More

Phil and Carolyn were so accommodating and welcoming.

Did the sunset tour last night on the lake. absolutely stunning, and great fun kayaking on the lake. Phil, the owner, was so helpful and informative. We even stopped in the middle of the lake and had a nice cuppa tea and a delicious chocolate muffin. great fun. This is a must do for anyone visiting Batemans Bay.
