Start your day off right with a half-day kayak tour to South Stradbroke Island. Enjoy a great vantage point on the beaches and wildlife of the Gold Coast as you paddle at a leisurely pace, stopping to snorkel off Wavebreak Island, visit secluded beaches, and enjoy a picnic breakfast on the beach. Your expert guide shares informative commentary about the region's ecology and animals, and provides full instruction on kayaking and snorkeling — making this tour suitable for both experienced paddlers and first-timers.
  • Morning 5-hour kayak tour to South Stradbroke Island
  • Keep an eye out for dolphins, turtles and whales as you paddle
  • Enjoy breakfast on a secluded island
  • Stroll along the beach and look for wildlife such as golden wallabies
  • Snorkel in the warm waters off of Wavebreak Island
  • Instruction and use of kayaks, snorkeling gear and safety equipment included
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.

Highly recommended! Fun trip with a good guide too. But Kayaking is hard than I expected, does need a bit arm power.

A good value for money morning trip. Our guide was very friendly and helpful.

This was a relaxing tour and our friendly guide made the trip extra fun. However, the snorkeling fell through as we can barely see anything underwater and it's a shame we couldn't get notified about the condition earlier since the cyclone happened a while back.

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

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!!

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.
