This full day Kayaking glide through parts of South Australia's environmental gems started as a graduate assignment in Eco Tourism. It has now turned into a full time, job of a lifetime, for guide and owner Brenton Carle.

Brenton offers all-inclusive Kayak tours of the Coorong and the Murray mouth region. Three hours of Kayaking may sound confronting for some but this tour is one that will accommodate anyone from the athletic, to families with children. Not to mention those who are keen to get some superb photos.

The Leisurely paddle through the Coorong leads to a morning tea stop. Where the charismatic Brenton shares local folklore, history and some of his Nana's (yes really) home made baked goods.
The numerous stops for unbelievable scenic views and environmental talks break up the kayaking, making it just the right pace.

In various locations Brenton guides the group across land allowing participants to sample local 'bush tucker'.

Further kayaking and photo opportunities lead to the midday stop. A delicious vegetarian lunch is provided, including fresh Cockles cooked up by the guide himself. After which the group is encouraged to relax and discuss any questions about the area.

After a few more short paddles the adventure winds down and Canoe the Coorong guide Brenton leads the Kayakers back to base. Along the way cameras are still out as participants try to capture a few more memories of the day. Photos or not, the tour itself is unforgettable.
