Come and join us for an exciting adventure as we paddle across the tranquil waters of the Gold Coast. The water where we conduct our tours are protected by surrounding islands, with mild sub-tropical temperatures and around 10 to 15 metres visibility.
During our Half Day Dolphin and Straddie Tour we will keep an eye out for Dolphins, Turtles, Stingrays, visit two of our secluded islands and then enjoy a delicious continental breakfast on the beach.
We will snorkel with hundreds of sub-tropical fish off Wavebreak Island (1hr approx) and take a short paddle to South Stradbroke Island. Stroll across to one of the best surfing beaches in the world. Spot the Swamp Faced Wallaby only found on South Stradbroke Island.
Our tours are designed for any fitness level. You will get comprehensive instructions on how to use the kayaks and snorkelling equipment. Most of our customers are first timers, so having no experience is no problem. Our experienced local tour guides will also give you an interpretive talk about the Islands and surrounds.
