Reflect on your day, have a chat, or sit in silence as you soak up the last rays of the sun with a relaxing drink in hand and watch the sunset behind the anchored sailboats.
See Sea Turtles!
Join the fun and excitement of a half-day sea kayak adventure with the island’s only accredited eco-tour! Check in at 8:00 am on the beach in Horseshoe Bay. Your friendly, experienced, and qualified guide gives you full instruction and a safety briefing prior to being kitted out with a life jacket and spray deck. Next comes the exciting part of launching your kayak, where you are given further instruction once afloat on how to control your kayak at sea.
The guided tour takes you out around the northern tip to discover the rugged beauty of the coastline in Magnetic Island’s World Heritage National & Marine Park. From the quiet of your sea kayak, you paddle around to one of its northern bays, usually the secluded Balding Bay, which has no road access, or the picturesque Radical Bay.
After pulling ashore, you are treated to a tropical breakfast on the beach. Then it’s time for relaxation and an opportunity to learn about the area’s history and ecology on the island’s most informative and only true environmentally friendly tour.
On your return journey, you get to view nature in the wild as you paddle within metres of huge granite boulders and let your worries drift away as you search the coastline for its many wading sea-birds, watch huge birds of prey soar above you, and look for a sea turtle, dolphin, or whale (during whale season – July to September). You return to Horseshoe Bay finish your tour by 12:00 pm.
This tour is suitable for the beginner to intermediate paddler, operates with a minimum of two and maximum of 12 customers, and is priced per person in a double sea kayak.
