Meet your guide at the designated meeting spot in Rose Bay, then receive a safety briefing and paddle instruction before hopping into your kayak. You’ll be using kayaks that are stable and easy to handle with a little practice. Try out your paddle and steering technique close to shore before following your guide out on the waters of Sydney’s inner or outer harbor. Your expert guide ensures that you enjoy a safe and fun kayak tour, with plenty of time for rest stops and photo ops.
During your tour, hear informative commentary from your guide about the Aboriginal history of Sydney, the colonial era and modern developments. Learn about marine animals that can be found in the rich habitat of the harbor, including rare visits from a southern right whale.
