    This activity is suitable for intermediate to advanced paddlers.

    The guided kayak tour takes over as you follow the rugged coastline of the island around to one of its northern bays, usually the secluded Balding Bay - a bay with no road access or perhaps the picturesque Radical Bay.

    After pulling ashore, you will be given a tropical breakfast on the beach, time for relaxation and learn about the history and ecology of the island before launching for the return trip.

    On the return journey, you will get to kayak within metres of huge granite boulders, search the coastline for its many wading and sea birds, watch huge birds of prey soar above you, or look and listen for a sea turtle surfacing to breathe close by.

    You will return to Horseshoe Bay by approximately 12.30pm.
