What You Can Expect

Stradbroke Island Kayak and Snorkeling Tour

Snorkeling off Wavebreak Island

Be picked up from your Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach hotel, or meet at the Broadwater Tourist Park if you have your own wheels. Then launch your kayak into Broadwater channel, warm and calm year-round.

While paddling across to South Stradbroke Island, look out for dolphins, turtles, colorful tropical fish and stingrays swimming nearby. Pelicans and sea eagles fly through the air, and if you’re kayaking between May and November you might even see migrating whales!

The kayak tour takes you to two secluded islands, and includes a delicious continental breakfast on the beach. Spend an hour in the water off Wavebreak Island, and use the snorkel gear provided to swim underwater with tropical fish.

Stroll the fantastic surfing beach on South Stradbroke Island, and see if you can spot the island’s golden wallaby, found nowhere else in Australia.

With equipment included, and led by knowledgeable local guides, this kayaking half-day tour is a great way to get the day started on the Gold Coast!

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

The tour was very fun and our guide Steve was awesome! I would recommend as a must do.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2013

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.
