Dear Atalanta

We all had a great time on your trip last week; it was easily one of hte best conducted organized tours we've ever done and we'll recommend you to everyone.  This week all I want to do is eat every few hours!! I really got used to being waited on.  I have attached a couple of pics for you to put on facebook.  Also do you share your muesli bar recipe?  

It was Awesome,

Dear Attie

Thank you for the wonderful paddle to Dunk Island, and all the great info.  Holly and I had a great time.  Could you please send us the recipe for your Granola Bars?  They were excellent.

Thanks again for the wonderful trip.

Dear Attie and Davo

I just wanted to send an email to say thank you again for a really great kayak trip, it was one of the best experiences I have had. Dave and Thorpy were excellent guides and incredibly knowledgeable about the marine life, birds and the islands. As they saw from the amount I ate, I really enjoyed all the meals which were great too!

I know Dave doesn't really worry about Trip Advisor but when I have time I will put an excellent rating on there, also I have many Aussie friends in London, Sydneysiders mainly, who'll I'll encourage to do a trip to Mission Beach when they return.

Many thanks again, best wishes

Dear Atalanta, Dave and Michelle

Home now from our great east coast QLD holiday.

Thank you for making the kayaking trip an outstanding highlight of our adventures up the coast. It was an unforgettable 3 days away from it all !!

Could you please send us your muesli slice receipe, it was sooo yummy. It will make for a great lunch box addition.

Kind regards to all

Dear Atti and Dave

I would just like to convey my heartfelt thanks to you both and James for a fantastic trip. I had a fantastic week.

I can't pick the best part as there were so many good things I wouldn't know where to begin. The boys looked after us perfectly, from the beautiful meals, to the evening entertainment, and of course our safety on the water.

As you already know the landscape speaks for itself.

I will have no trouble recommending you and your trips to anyone and everyone who will listen. I hope to travel with you again sometime in the not too distant future.

Many, many, many thanks and good luck to you all, Cheers

Hi folks

Wanted to let you know what a great experience we had with you all. The kayaking, equipment, sightseeing opportunities, support, meals and companionship were excellent all the time.  Have sent a few photos of Mignon & Mike to them in Sacramento. I know Dave photographed during the expedition, so was wondering if you might be able to share them with us to add to our album. Here are a few snaps to add to yours.

Kindest regards

Dear Attie, Dave & Judd

I just wanted to say a belated "THANK YOU" for helping to make our adventure to Hinchinbrook Island so wonderful.  Thank you Attie for all your help planning the trip and answering our numerous questions, and helping load up and dry us off at the end of our journey.  Thank you Dave for getting us safely to Lucinda and all your great instructions to help keep us safe along the way.  And a big THANK YOU to Judd for being such a wonderful guide and companion for our trip. You were full of helpful and interesting information and we felt very safe (despite the 2 metre swell!) in your hands.  Thank you for making it so relaxing and enjoyable and sharing your little patch of paradise with us.

And here's a beautiful shot of Judd relaxing at Sunset Bay after a challenging day's paddling.

Many thanks, Warm regards

Hi Atalanta,

Just wanted to say thank you so much to taking me and Chris out for the wettest trip to Dunk Island back in March.  Despite the rain we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and think it's a beautiful part of Queensland.  Thank again.

HI Atalanta and Dave,

Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you both. I had an incredible time on my kayaking trip and I'm so grateful that you decided to go ahead with the trip even though there were only the two of us.

Dave was great company, a fantastic cook and an incredible guide.

I look forward to hopefully doing some more sea kayaking in Melbourne in the summer and I'm already looking at some overseas trips for next year. (happy for any suggestions)

I've attached a couple of photo's of the fish Dave caught too. It really was a massive fish!

Also - I was hoping you could send me the recipe for your muesli bars that we ate on our trip. I loved them and would like to give them a try at home.

Thanks again, I really had a wonderful time. Regards,

Liz White, Melb, Vic. (August 2011 Tropical Island Kayak)


Thanks again for great organisation and to David and James for being excellent guides on the recent (July 4) Tropical Islands paddle that I did. Now that I've been spoilt by having a hunky honey of a paddling partner, I will expect him to be my partner on all future trips!! Don't let him run back to Hobart!!

Thanks again,
