Join our expert Guide/Instructor on our epic Kayak or Stand Up Paddle Eco Adventures.  Meander through Marine Park Sanctuaries, explore idyllic getaways, swim crystal clear waters, witness superb sunsets, choose to relax or exercise, escape to beautiful surroundings, or encounter local dolphins, turtles, koalas or other wildlife. Our Guides possess the local knowledge that allows the chance to experience some or all of what will be the highlight to any visit of Port Stephens.

Why Join our Tours?

Paddling with our experienced and qualified guide provides you with the opportunity to experience SO MUCH MORE than renting (we do offer paddle board hire). Our guides possess a broad knowledge of the Port Stephens and surrounding Newcastle waterways, such as the knowledge of wind, tide, currents, where dolphins and other wildlife are commonly seen, where to go and where not to go, and much more. All this knowledge can make your time on the water a fun, safe and rewarding experience.

Please note that our tours run on SELECTED DATES ONLY. These dates have been selected professionally by our guides to ensure that tidal strength and direction will provide you with the safest and most rewarding experience possible. Our tours will only run when we’re sure we can offer you with the promise of a comfortable, safe, and awe-inspiring experience.
