Overview

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.

Had a great morning with Brad and Jeremy who looked after us and explained lots of local history while we paddled towards the sunrise. Fun and just enough of a challenge for us (Dad and 12yo daughter) to feel like we were doing something adventurous.

This morning we headed out with Brad exploring Double Island. Great interaction with Dolphins was the highlight. Brad is a good bloke, very knowledgeable about the local area and has some interesting stories as well. Great value for money and adventure. 👍

Great morning kayaking out to Double Island with Brad. Sun didn’t quite get out from behind the clouds but still a fantastic trip. Brad’s knowledge of the local area history, bush foods, plants and local marine life is excellent. Lovely mid-way stop for fresh fruit...More
