Experience the Australian bush and unique sandstone rock formations. A variety of birds, reptiles and animals inhabit the area any you can usually get closer in a kayak than on foot as they do not see you as threatening. Great opportunities for photography as long as you are careful as water and cameras do not play well. Waterproof cameras are great, though many paddlers use normal cameras without any issues.

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
