Great 2 hours out SUP. Saw a sea eagle swoop in and catch a fish only a few metres away. Even miss 11 impressed. Damien was a really good instructor. 5/5

Fun and relaxing activity in a beautiful environment. It is really nice to explore the National park from the water and spot different kinds of wildlife, like stingrays jellyfish and birds.

I Recently had 59 Students experience stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling and Kayaking over a two hour block with Damian at Eco Treasures. This is not the first time we have booked these activities.

At all times the staff have been friendly, experienced and reliable. We have always been safe and students were challenged to their ability levels.

I would recommend the tour as a treasure within Sydney. A must do if you have never done these activities and especially if you want to see the diversity of wildlife and activities in the one easy to access place. In the water you will likely see fish such as ream, flathead, octopus, cuttlefish and sea horses. On land there are often wallabies and goanna's around to so a must see if you are a tourist.
So good almost want to keep it a Secret!

The setting for this experience is so beautiful, tranquil and safe. The journey to get there - car to Palm Beach then a ferry to The Basin - a great experience in itself. Damien, our guide, is very knowledgeable and passionate about the area. He also made us feel very much at ease - especially given my boyfriend and I had never done paddle boarding before, and I am not particularly comfortable in deep water. As requested, I was provided with a life-jacket. Paddle boarding is a wonderful way to spend time outdoors, relax, enjoy the water and the surrounding National Park,. The paddle boards are quite stable; it was surprisingly easy to stand up on them and a great feeling to move about the water exploring this tucked away little heaven. We saw lots of little fish and some bigger ones, and to our surprise and delight we saw quite a few young stingrays too! On land there was the odd inquisitive wallaby and in the sky above majestic soaring sea eagles. What a treat :).
New experience in stunning location

Never having tried stand up paddleboarding, I was pleasantly surprised. Jeremy was a great teacher, and we had a ball. The boards are very stable and easy even for a novice. The inlet was tranquil and lots of fun to explore. A great morning in a fantastic location.
