Beautiful Sydney Sunriser Kayaking Tour

During our 28 years on Sydney Harbour, we know all the top spots to visit. We can explore many different locations depending on the conditions and we will do it in style by using beautiful Australian made lightweight sea kayaks (made by Mirage Sea Kayaks).

On our paddle, it is more enjoyable that we cruise at a leisurely pace, therefore you will only need a moderate level of fitness.

You will need to be at least an intermediate or experienced kayaker.

We do not recommend this tour for beginner paddlers.

Beginner paddlers should first start with our Middle Harbour Eco Tour

Middle Harbour Mangrove Explorer

As civilisation slips away the true beauty of our harbour and it's wildlife will open up before you. This guided experience will only run when there is a large morning high tide, as this will allow us to venture well in between the grey mangroves of Sugarloaf Bay, Scott's Creek or Bantry Bay

This guided experience starts and finishes at Sydney Harbour Kayaks at the Spit Bridge, Mosman, only 8 km (20 mins) from Sydney's CBD.

This experience only will be run when there is a very high-tide in the morning, as this allows us to explore deep under the canopy of the mangroves.

We had an amazing day on the harbour with our guide Connor. There were about 10 kayaks in our group and all mainly stuck together throughout the trip. The safety lesson at the beginning was efficient and included great tips for a first time kayaker such as myself. Our trip was broken by a lovely beach picnic halfway through at Flat Rock Beach. I recommend this to anyone with average fitness who is keen to explore a little more of Sydney in a unique experience. I also think it is a great way to dip your toe into kayaking before you hire one for the day. We will be back to hire kayaks again and do some exploring on our own. Thanks for a wonderful day - which just happened to be my 40th Birthday!! :)

The views and seeing another side of Sydney was amazing. Hearing the history of the area very interesting. Angela was a great guide. Lovely group of people on the tour, a lot of fun and laughter. Found facilities for showering and changing after the tour severely lacking, particularly if travelling from a distance.

Introduction to Kayaking is an excellent programme for both beginners and those with some skills. Focus is on developing techniques by building skills in a well structured three hour lesson. The guides are extremely positive and engaged and will make your experience worthwhile. You really feel a sense of achievement and a desire to continue your kayaking around Middle Harbour

It was total serenity on the harbour waters surrounded by the lush bushland, historic buildings and mega waterfront mansions. Tiernan had good local knowledge, was funny and made the morning very enjoyable. Morning tea at a secluded beach with waterfall to boot. Five stars !!
