Meet at our boatshed which is located on the waters edge at Blackwattle Bay only a couple of kilometres from Sydney's centre. It's easy to walk from the city, catch a bus, take the light rail. Street parking can be found for drivers.
After a safety briefing and introduction to efficient paddling technique we'll launch our sleek kayaks and head out under the Anzac Bridge towards the centre of the Harbour. We'll experience the built environs and get up close and personal with many of the harbour's natural wonders and marine inhabitants. We'll paddle to the center of the harbour, where we'll get some photos of you framed by the Harbour Bridge. We'll continue on to Goat Island where we'll land in a secret cove before exploring this special place on foot. Goat Island is a designated conservation zone and landing is only allowed by special permit which is included as part of your tour. After a guided walk around the island, we'll hop back into our kayaks before
paddling back via Darling Harbour.
After we're finished your welcome to have a hot shower before treating yourself to a well earned lunch. There are many great food options nearby including the Sydney Fish Markets, the Tramsheds or the Famous Glebe Point Road which has scores of great local cafes, pubs, micro breweries,and restaurants.
