What You Can Expect
Receive a safety briefing, paddling instruction and all necessary gear, then launch your kayak into the calm waters of the Broadwater channel. Paddle to two nearby islands, keeping an eye out for turtles, fish, dolphins and stingrays along the way. Pelicans and sea eagles soar through the air, and if you visit between May and November, you might get lucky and see migrating humpback whales.
Step out of your kayak on the beach and enjoy a delicious picnic breakfast. Have an hour to snorkel at Wavebreak Island with the provided snorkel gear. At South Stradbroke Island, you can take a walk on the renowned surfing beach and look for wild golden wallabies — native to this island and not found anywhere else in Australia.
At the end of your 5-hour kayak tour, your guide leads you back to the mainland where your tour ends.
It was great fun - guide had a great sense of humour
Loved our morning kayaking and snorkelling in the sea. Steve is an awesome and enthusiastic guide! Add this activity to your 'must-do' list while on the Gold Coast!!
Had a great time - Steve is very knowledgeable about the area and snorkelling was a blast as well.
The tour was very fun and our guide Steve was awesome! I would recommend as a must do.
Great trip. Only downside was the snorkling was in silty water and left not much to see. Would recommend it still.
Was a wonderful relaxing morning. Wasn't a very strenuous kayak, but me personally having a bad back did feel it but having my partner paddle a lot was good. The beach at south Stradie was stunning! didn't see any wallabies did see other animals. The visability in the water wasnt wonderful but was still amazing having a whole school of brim swim circles around me. Would deffintly do again.
Good communication with the provider, easy to get the hang of it. Don't expect a hot breakfast. We saw dolphins even. very happy with this and enjoyed it immensely.
Great! Shame about the jellyfish.
The tour was slow and enjoyable, and we had the good fortune of good weather as well. The guide was knowledgeable about the area and told us all about how the islands were formed through dredging and sand that was naturally eroded from NSW. Walking on South Stradbroke Island was wonderful with an endless horizon at the end of the walk.
If there was one thing that didn't live up to the rest of the trip, it would be the snorkelling. Waters were murky and the variety of sea-life was almost non-existent. We were happy to finish snorkelling after 10 minutes because there was basically nothing to see.
