Imagine gliding on crystal clear water in a sea kayak through a landscape of pink granite mountains, sandy white beaches and blue waters so clear you feel you can touch the marine life below. Make this a reality on this Freycinet Paddle!

Your experience starts with a short safety briefing and demonstration of the paddling skills that you will quickly master before we head out on onto the water in stable, double kayaks. Then it's off to enjoy the unique perspective that sea kayaking offers!

Sea kayaks allow us to slowly explore this spectacular coastline of Coles Bay beneath the Hazards range. We pass quietly by wildlife and perhaps see a majestic eagle as it soars above. The guides love this beautiful part of the world and look forward to sharing its natural and cultural stories. Discover the history of secluded coves such as Honeymoon Bay, hear tales of French explorers and learn about the ancient culture of the Oyster Bay tribe.

The waters of the Freycinet Peninsula are crystal clear, giving us a glimpse into the stunning underwater world as we glide over reefs and sea grass beds. We pause midway at a pristine beach to enjoy a morning / afternoon tea of fresh brewed coffee and cake before continuing the journey around Coles Bay.

This experience voucher is valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

Freycinet National Park, Tasmania.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great way to spend a morning. Things look different from the water. Great weather and great scenery. A very small group meant individualised service for us. The guide was friendly and knowedgable, and we had the good fortune to be able to watch a pair of sea eagles feeding on some fish. 6 May 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by I loved the experience. The boats were incredibly stable and easy to paddle. The best part was paddling out to the island near the start in 30kmh winds through waves. It was the excitement and challenge I needed pushing through the waves and made the trip awesome. The staff member, Jarred was great and made the journey interesting and challenging. Thanks 22 February 2012
