Tzoonie as operated in Narrows Inlet on the Sunshine Coast for over thirty years. We have tried to provide equipment and expertise to accommodate recreational pursuits that have evolved over the years. In the early days the emphasis was on fishing. Most guests visited to enjoy reef fishing primarily for cod and red snapper. We had small boat rentals and fishing equipment for rental purposes. The daily fishing limit in those days was 8 fish per person. Limits decreased to the current “one fish per day” which can hardly justify boat rental and often a guide. We always had canoes on hand until the next phenomena which required us to acquire kayaks. Kayaking became a sport of choice for over a decade and  Narrows Inlet, with the protected waters, marine life and spectacular scenery, was certainly  a preferred destination for many paddlers.

Over the past couple of seasons we have noticed a decline in number of kayakers. It seems the trend is towards paddle boarding and biking which apparently are the fastest growing  sports. We acquired paddle boards and beginning in 2017 we plan to be much more active in catering to mountain bike enthusiasts. Tzoonie has direct access to many kilometers of abandoned logging trails and we plan to introduce and assist our biking guests to enjoy this resource. We are currently contacting bike tour companies who might be searching for all-inclusive destinations that provide additional recreational pursuits such as fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, beachcombing, etc. Often many family members would prefer a variety of choice. Anyone reading this blog might wish to check out a video on the biking gallery of this website which pretty well describes what we are all about.
