What You Can Expect

Stradbroke Island Kayak and Snorkeling Tour

Snorkeling off Wavebreak Island

After early morning pickup from your hotel in Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach, head to the Broadwater Tourist Park to meet your guide.

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.

Great trip. Only downside was the snorkling was in silty water and left not much to see. Would recommend it still.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2015

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.
