Let us take you on a wander through one of the most magnificent harbours in the world. Discover its many bays and beaches, its beauty, its history and experience it in a way close to nature.
We offer very personalised tours for small groups or individuals. We also have early morning paddles for those who live in Sydney and want to get fit and join one of our groups for a great start to your working day. If you don't want to paddle with a group we can also offer personal tours for just yourself or a couple.
Here are some of the trips we run:
* The Billy Blue Paddle
This paddle is good first paddle although it is still quite adventurous. We paddle from Lavender Bay to Blues Point which is the ideal location for some great photos with the Harbour Bridge and Opera house in the background. We round the headland into Berrys Bay which is always interesting to explore. The total distance is appox 5.5 kms.
* The Balmain Paddle
From our base in Lavender Bay we paddle west past Goat Island and explore the shores of Balmain, Birchgrove then across to Berry Island where we can do a short walk before our return paddle via Balls Head and across Berrys Bay. Total distance approx 10 kms.
* VIP Paddle (Private Tour)
Early morning on weekdays you can do your own personalised tour with us. On our VIP Paddle we'll take just you (or a couple) on a private tour. We can design the tour to suit your ability and preference. The Bridge Paddle route is a possibility for beginners on these trips.
With 240 km of shoreline in Sydney Harbour there are lots of options. If you have your own group of six people or more we can design a trip to suit.
We use double (two-person) "Dusky Bay" sea kayaks with foot operated rudders and water tight gear compartments. They are approx 20ft long and are constructed of fibreglass.
They are fast and stable.
One of our kayaks was used in the 2000 Hawkesbury Classic which is a 110km race from Windsor to Brooklyn and it broke the record for this class - finishing in around 10 hours 40 mins!
