Sea kayaking is one of the best ways to explore the coastline and islands of tropical north Queensland. We have amazing encounters with dolphins, turtles, stingrays and other marine life while paddling around history rich Double Island. Tours are offered year-round catering equally for those seeking a peaceful paddle or a bit of adventure. Our sunrise and half-day tours run daily. Paddling techniques and safety information are clearly explained and demonstrated. Our highly stable single and double, sit on top, kayaks are well suited for beginners to experienced kayakers. Each tour visits Double Island and includes fresh fruits, sweet treats and juices. Half-day tours include snorkelling.

Easy to find place, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We did the late morning tour around double island, saw loads of rays near the mangroves, shovel nose skates, birds, crabs and other wild life, short wade out to see some soft corals, then kayaked around the rear end to a sea cave, snorkeled the reef right off the island, very...

We went on the sunrise kayak tour and had Lani all to ourselves who was very knowledgeable about the area and the animals. It was an awesome way to start the day and even got some fresh fruit and juice at Double Island! Lani was so friendly and helpful! I highly recommend doing this affordable adventure!

We (family of 4) had been trying to book a 'last minute' reef trip through the bigger tour operators in Cairns and Pt Douglas but they were either booked out or would have been so overcrowded that it would not have been enjoyable. However, to our delight we found Palm Cove Watersports purely by chance on the esplanade at beautiful... More

Our experience with Brad was nothing short of exceptional. Not only did he cater for our late booking request, but he provided all the necessary information we needed to ensure we had a fantastic day (what to bring, time to arrive, etc.) The tour itself was fantastic, beginning with a calm paddle out to the island, during which we were...

Great kayak adventure. Both Larne and Brad where very helpful in explaining our islands tour. Brad was very informative with his knowledge and guidance of the islands, including plants and marine life. Great snorkelling for coral around Scout island and viewed some turtles in ocean on the way out and back to mainland. Strongly recommend doing this trip. Loretta and... More

What a great morning! Our very laid back Aussie host took us paddling out to Double Island & Scouts hat. We saw turtles and rays, & when he gave us snorkel gear we saw lots of beautiful fish and coral. We paddled around to a deserted beach for a picnic and a swim. I don't know why we didn't do... More
