Every single bit of kayaking with Kiah Wilderness Tour owner Jenny was fabulous so there can be no best part. Although seeing a tiger snake on a sand bank in the middle of the river rates in a different sort of category altogether. I looked and left in a hurry - what a wonderful experience. The juvenile white-bellied sea Eagle perched on a low branch was also a magnificent sight. Morning tea was delicious and it was so nice to have a chat in such a beautiful location.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Karen. So glad you enjoyed it, despite our (kinda) close encounter with a tiger snake! This river is full of surprises - what a magnificent specimen and so glad he/she seemed more scared of us than the other way around. So glad you finally got to take our tour. Let's hope we can get your sister down here soon, too :) Cheers, Jenny & Arthur

I can’t recommend KIAH Wilderness Tours highly enough! We did a half-day kayak tour and Jen and Arthur were exceptional hosts and tour guides. Every aspect of the tour was well organised from the quality of the kayaking equipment to the delicious morning tea and the photos. Jen and Arthur were very knowledgeable about the river - pointing out wildlife and geological features, and local history, and were very engaging to talk to. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful morning kayaking with Jenny and Arthur. The river is beautiful and calm. We saw some bird life on the river and enjoyed the scenery. Jenny and Arthur are calm and patient teachers and guides who ensure that all members of the group succeed in kayaking down the river. They are very knowledgeable about the local wildlife. A lovely morning tea is included. We would highly recommend this tour.

This is an excellent way to get out early and connect with the peacefulness of the south coast river landscape. Our family enjoyed the morning. They looked after our 10yo and made sure that he was given extra instruction on the paddling / kayaking skills.
