Kayaking Port Stephens Marine Park
Why Join our Tours?
PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER, that our tours are an eco based adventure as a priority, which uses kayaks as a means to experience the natural highlights of Port Stephens in a way that will not interrupt the local eco system. Our tours will only run when we’re sure we can offer you with the promise of a comfortable, safe, and awe-inspiring experience, but please expect that you will be paddling long distance and away from the shoreline. Despite our tours being designed for all levels of kayaking experience and those with a reasonable fitness level, we do ask you to bring an adventurous spirit and kindly ask those who wish to try kayaking for the first time under instructional guidance to consider our rentals which remain within more sheltered easy going waters.
