Paddling with Matt was definitely the highlight of my Sydney visit! So much fun and such a great way to see the harbour, the goat island, the harbour bridge and the opera house! Matt is really knowledgeable and told me a lot about the history of the harbour. Definitely worth it and I would recommend it to everyone! I hope I can come back one day. Thank you Matt for this amazing day!
