Ever wanted to kayak and snorkel on the beautiful Gold Coast? Paddle across Broadwater to South Stradbroke Island and watch the stunning wildlife pass you by and if you're lucky you might even spot a dolphin frolicking close by!
On this relaxing kayak tour, you will paddle across the short passage of Broadwater to the beautiful white sandy beaches of South Stradbroke Island and visit two other islands along the way. Your journey begins after a comprehensive safety briefing, held on the beach by your guide for the day. As you start paddling across Broadwater in your kayak, your first stop will be on Wavebreak Island for an amazing snorkelling experience amongst an abundance of sub-tropical fish. Hand feed the fish and be amazed at their curiosity. Or if relaxing is more your scene, take a break on the beach! You will then leisurely explore the popular Broadwater by either paddle power (tide assisted of course!) or kayak sail (based on favourable winds!) before arriving on South Stradbroke Island.
For your second stop, you will go on a brief walk across the island to marvel at the vast sand dunes and deserted surf beaches. Be fascinated by this amazing sand island, which has three different types of forests. You might even get to see the local wallabies whilst on the island. After a scrumptious picnic (morning or afternoon tea of cakes, pastries, breads and fresh tropical fruit) held on a secluded beach and served with a selection of cold drinks, you will head back to the mainland, passing Crab Island, where the local sting-rays hang out! Upon your return to the Gold Coast, your courtesy vehicle will then take you back to your accommodation.
The experience is run either in the morning or afternoon, depending on winds and tides for the given day. Morning tours start at approx. 7:30am and afternoon tours from approx. 12:30pm.
We operate with a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 12 people. Larger group numbers can be catered for please notify us at the time of booking.

We recommend wearing your swimwear with a t-shirt and pair of shorts over the top. Thongs or sandals work well on our tour and will only be required for the sand dune walk. We also recommend a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, a towel and your camera!
