  • Great weekend hiring kayaks from Hawkesbury River Kayaks! Such a beautiful location! We hired over 2 days camping at Twin Beaches. Bob was exceptional! Incredibly friendly, full of great suggestions, very prompt at getting back to us, and dropped off/picked up the Kayaks from Berowra Waters where we started the trip! Kayaks were in great condition, and the location was lovely. Can not recommend Hawkesbury River Kayaks enough!
  • We took two sea kayaks for an overnight trip in early July. Outstanding friendly personal service, good quality gear (all in good nick), map and info. Minimal fuss and heaps of fun. Very good value. Perfect way to explore in natural surroundings. Highly recommend. July was cold. We had sleeping bags rated to zero degrees (plus tent and air mattresses) and were still a bit cold. (An extra blanket over both sleeping bags probably would have done it.) Heads up! Also consider packing gloves to avoid blisters if you're infrequent paddlers like us. :)
