One day canoe tour Brilliant in every way possible, a 12hr day but every minute was enjoyable. If you enjoy being active this is for you. Stunning beauty in peaceful location. Macca is a first class guide who generously shares his knowledge. We would definitely recommend.

Can see why this was recommended! After having lived in kununurra for a couple of years, we’d had this trip recommended to us by word of mouth as a ‘must do’ and I can see why. With paddle in hand it was a very enjoyable way to see the Ord and what it has on offer at a relaxing pace. We did the two day canoe trip with an overnight camp out and found that this was just right for us. We also took along a fishing rod and did a bit of trawling which turned out to be a bit of fun. Macca was brilliant also, very accommodating and makes sure the camps are well equipped and maps are easy to follow - all in all a well run and very enjoyable experience!

Absolutely fantastic time on the Ord My family (wife and 19yr old daughter and 14yr old son and myself) travelled through the Kimberleys for 5 weeks in June 2019 and made a great decision to do a 2 day kayaking trip with Go Wild Econoeing organised by Macka. We travelled with another couple who were heaps of fun too. It was an absolutely amazing trip. I kayak a fair bit but my wife and kids hadn't so it was great being able to share the kayaking experience with them especially in such an incredible place. My wife found it a little challenging early on but then really relaxed into the paddle and taking it all in. I recommend the overnight stay as its a lovely time to get some eat some fresh fish and reflect on the day with your family. I fished a bit and lost a few good sooty grunter and eventually had to settle for a big catfish to feed everyone. Surprisingly good to eat. The swimming was great. First lunch stop on the beach is really nice. Herbies Hideaway is a must find. Jump rock is also a must though it took me a while to get the guts to jump.. and did my kids let me know all about it? The sunsets and views are incredible. The 4 of us sang out with echoes as we floated down Carlton Gorge and it was just great. Macka was fabulous. A great fella. Provides good maps and advice and makes it all fun. If you are have a couple of days spare in Kununurra or an overseas traveller I just cant think of a better was to experience the Kimberley. Definitely book up an overnight trip. You cant go wrong. For what you get it represents great value. Thanks Macka :)

Brilliant Had a ball under Maka's tutilidge re canoeing tips. 3 days of quite bliss. The 3 days and 2 nights of seeing the river Ord at a slow pase. The camps were basic but functional with water, toilet and shower ( cold). There are discounts for any equipment you bring. We would definately doniy again.

The Ord isn't ordinary What a great experience travelling down this river valley in a human powered craft. It's not just all paddling either. We enjoyed lookouts, swimming holes and exploring freshwater creeks. Loved the different camp sites all set up to take the hassle out of camping. After reading the comments we decided to break the last day in two and use Macca's new camp site. It left only a couple hours of paddling the next day.

See the river at the right pace This is an excellent way to see and experience this stunning river, its gorges and wildlife. The scenery is stunning and whilst remote, you are not totally isolated. Those who have paddled before will find this very easy. We had no experience and though fit, are a bit older and still managed even if challenged on days 2 and 3. The challenge was really an addition to the experience. The blisters kept it in memory for a while (take sailing gloves). Day 1 was a blast as it has the fastest water to supply a bit of adrenaline without fatigue. The camps are in beautiful settings with all you want for a comfortable bush experience. Macca is building more to be able to have longer times in locations. He was very accommodating to our needs and schedule. He provided great advice on side trips with maps and is himself an addition to the overall experience. We loved being on this river and would do it again for longer should we return.

Three days canoeing down the Ord Three canoes, six friends ! What a great adventure. It was Macca's happy persona, great organisation, perfectly set up campsites, three eskys full of food and drink, and a good flowing river with (mostly) winds pushing in the right direction that made it such a great three days. And despite a serious dunking of one of our couples ... we, in our 60's, were very happy with our rescuing skills without having to call Macca ! Don't hesitate. Do it.

Amazing three day trip! My partner and I had an absolute blast on the three day trip down the Ord River. As every reviewer has pointed out, Macca goes above and beyond to help all of his paddlers. Communication was clear from the start and he picked us up early so that we could store some equipment with him while we were paddling. Had a great time on the river seeing all the different wild life, explored numerous rivers and creeks to find waterholes and climbed to some of the best lookouts you'll find! Would recommend the three day trip to anyone, as was a great experience camping out in such remote areas in set up sites. Though be ready for a long paddle on the last day! Book it now and enjoy!

Gorgeous gorges, and paddling fun! Two amazing days paddling the Ord River, we were lucky to have it all to ourselves! The first day is super easy on the paddle as you just go with the flow, the gorges are so spectacular. The camp has everything you need and is clean and tidy. Day 2 we paddled up the creek, walked up to the Butterfly gorge and checked out the beautiful waterfall, further on we paddled enjoying the awesome scenery, around 4pm Macca picked us up and we cruised on the golden water enjoyed the sunset, then said our goodbyes! Such a great tour!!
