A memorable and deeply satisfying kayaking experience

Tours

All of our tours are designed to give our customers a memorable and deeply satisfying kayaking experience. Together we’ll escape for a few hours exploring some of NSW’s most stunning waterways; absorbing the beauty of our surrounds, connecting with the local history and gaining some insight into the roles these waterways have and continue to play in our ecosystem, recreation and future.

Our kayak tour numbers are small, enabling guides to provide a more intimate group experience and to heighten your chances of seeing wildlife whilst immersing yourself in the surrounds without too much distraction.

All of our tours are designed to meet the needs of inexperienced kayakers, however, if you are an experienced paddler and would like a more challenging itinerary, please feel free to contact us to discuss possible options.
