Cairns is home to some great places to paddle - whether it be in a kayak, canoe, surf ski or even a stand up paddle board.
The beaches are safe, with the barrier reef offering protection from the crashing surf. However caution is recommended in some of the creeks and rivers due to the possible prescence of saltwater crocodiles. While it is very rare that they will bother people in a canoe or kayak it pays to be careful.
There is an active canoe and kayak club - http://www.cairnskayaking.com.au/ .
Kayaks can be rented from Palm Cove beach - just next to the Jetty, or for longer term hires click here
