To plan your Daintree Holiday visit


Sea Kayaking Tours

where the Rainforest meets the Reef

Please Note:

Regretfully we have suspended our kayak tours due to environmental conditions.

In the meantime we are happy to help you with suggestions for alternative Cape Tribulation activities, just give us a call.


Board a kayak and join us on a sea kayaking tour, exploring Cape Tribulation's tropical beaches, fringing reef, mangroves and marine wildlife. Paddle out into the Great Barrier Reef marine park from where you can enjoy amazing views of the Daintree National Park, the oldest rainforest on Earth. It is here these two world heritage listed areas lie side by side and you can explore this unique area by kayak!


There is so much to discover out on the water but the most exciting is spotting marine wildlife. Every day is different but wild life frequently spotted on our kayak tours include sea turtles, schools of fish, sea eagles, dolphins, dugong, sting rays and the occasional whale passing during migration season (July and August).


Learning about our unique tropical environment whilst kayaking is a very low impact and eco friendly way to travel through this pristine area. We are very proud to have been awarded Advanced Eco accreditation by Eco Tourism Australia. Being Advanced Eco certified means we are part of Australia's leading and most innovative ecotourism products, which means you have the opportunity to learn about the environment your are paddling in. We are committed to achieving best practice, using resources wisely, contributing to conservation and helping our local community.


Never been kayaking before? Don't worry! Our experienced and friendly guides will give you full paddling instructions, as well as a safety briefing, before you set off. We have sturdy, double and single, sit-on-top kayaks and everyone is fitted with a lifejacket. Children six and up are welcome to join their parents. A reasonable level of fitness does make the tour a bit easier.
