A little bit about us
Our paddle board and kayak hire business is locally owned, and operated by a small team of individuals who love paddling and love the area. Some of us grew up here, some of us landed here later in life, but all us know the spectacular harbour and the sights it offers like the back of our hands. We are qualified and skilled paddlers that frequent the local waterways as much as we can. If we’re not kayaking through the middle of the harbour, then we’re probably paddle boarding from one side to the other.

Are you interested in one of our SUP sales? Want to book in your family for a paddling tour? Well whether you’re hoping to experience the stunning sights of Nelson Bay, Shoal Bay, or within the Port Stephens Marine Park areas, we’ll equip you with the necessary water sports equipment to do so from a unique perspective.
We operate at two beautiful beach locations that are conveniently located, and provide a perfect surrounding for paddling activity.
Our SHOAL BAY location is what we call our main ‘headquarters’ as this is where our shop is located and the beach opposite is the safest and most popular location for our hire activities, and lessons. This large and beautiful bay provides a safe environment for beginners, and those that prefer to kayak or SUP for fun, relaxation, or exercise.
OUR SHOAL BAY LOCATION IS OPEN EVERYDAY BETWEEN SEPTEMBER & MAY (weather permitting) EXCEPT XMAS DAY.
Our trading hours depend on weather, the high/low holiday season, and customer demand however, we’re generally open between 9ish to 5ish. It’s always best to call us on 0405 033518 to see what we’re up to.
Our NELSON BAY location is situated within walking distance of the CBD, and the busy Marina precinct. Its central location provides the perfect departure point for our tours, and for adventurers who wish to explore the neighbouring sanctuary zones.
NELSON BAY IS OUR MEETING POINT FOR SCHEDULED KAYAK/SUP TOURS, AND ONLY OPEN FOR RENTALS DURING HIGH HOLIDAY SEASON, OR BY APPOINTMENT.
Ultimately, it’s always best to check with us on where we’re at and what we’re doing.

I arranged a double kayak during off-season. The person I was messaging was really easy to work with, and accommodated me despite it being off-season 🙏🏼Thank you for the great kayak opportunity. My friend had kayaking on her bucket list and was able to tick it off thanks to you. On the day there was a little hiccup with one of the staff, however, the situation was handled with the highest level of professionalism and kindness I've ever received from a company. The service was super friendly and I would highly recommend anyone to hire with Port Stephens Paddlesports
We joined a morning kayak tour in May 2017. We join kayak tours when we travel. I have to say that Michael is one of the best tour guides we have ever experienced and we truely enjoyed paddling with him. We talked a lot from "vegimate" to world history. Very knowledgeable guy. And top of that,we saw a pod of dolphins and they hang around with us about 5mins! That was the best experience! And after the tour,we had to wait for the bus and one of his staff offered to drive to accomodation in Anna Bay! Very very kind. Michael has a great company and great staff. Must thing to do if you are traveling Australia!
Absolutely awesome, fun activities for all fitness levels. Paddle Boarding is my favorite. Had never done it before until yesterday, my two daughters, hubby and I had loads of laughs and fun. Learnt really quickly how to stand and paddle OR you can kneel if you aren't confident to start with. Staff we're very nice and helpful and hire prices are very reasonable. Went back there today for more fun. Will definitely be back.
With being a big guy, it's often difficult to for me to take part in some outdoor recreation, but you guys got me on the water and standing up! You had me at ease with the laid back and simplistic approach, and your knowledge of both technique and equipment was given out clearly and with no nonsense. Highly appreciated!
