Half Day Guided Paddle

This paddle is without a doubt our most popular guided trip - designed to be appreciated by both experienced paddlers and beginners alike, with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment, not hard work.

Departing from our base at Shute Harbour, we kayak over fringing coral reefs and explore nearby tropical islands. 

These turquoise waters and islands are home to an amazing diversity of marine and bird life including giant sea turtles and soaring eagles. Between the months of July and September, there is also a chance to encounter the magnificent humpback whales which arrive to give birth to their calves before returning to Antarctic waters.

We stop off at White Rock, where there is time to swim, snorkel or kick back and relax. We provide cold drinks accompanied by a cheese and fruit platter, allowing you to refresh before our return to Shute Harbour.

Full Day Guided Paddle 

Enjoy a great day's sea kayaking in the Whitsundays with an experienced guide and a small group of paddlers.

Kayaking directly from our waterfront base at Shute Harbour we wind our way through the inner harbour islands before crossing over to nearby White Rock. Time is spent here snorkelling & swimming before the group paddles across the Molle Passage to Sandy Bay at South Molle Island. 

The waters off the Molle Group of Islands are home to giant sea turtles, dolphins, soaring sea eagles and a myriad of colourful tropical fish. You may even be lucky enough to spot migrating Humpback whales if you are here between July and September. At South Molle kick back and relax on the beach or take another opportunity to snorkel over fringing coral reefs. For the more energetic people, there is time to trek part of the Mount Jeffries walking track, lined with ancient "grass trees" which attract many varieties of butterflies. The walk boasts panoramic views across Whitsunday Island, Hamilton Island and the vast Conway State Forest plus equally stunning aerial views down into Sandy Bay and Shute Harbour. A delicious beach-based buffet lunch is provided before kayaking back to base in the afternoon.

6 Day Guided Expedition 

This is the ultimate in overnight kayaking expeditions. Spend 6 days exploring the Whitsunday wilderness, with our friendly and informative guides.

Immerse yourself in the sparkling turquoise waters that lap the white silica sands of Whitehaven Beach. Marvel at the iconic views from Hill Inlet and enter the amazing underwater world of fringing coral reefs. Snorkelling, bush walking and camping out under the stars are all part of this experience you will never forget.

Typical trip schedule

Day 1: Pick up by courtesy bus from your accommodation 8.30am, drive to Shute Harbour (approximately 10 minutes away). Kayaks and supplies are loaded onto the water taxi which transports us to Whitehaven Beach (on the south east of Whitsunday Island. We set up camp and spend the rest of the day exploring nearby Haselwood Island and bush walk to Chance Bay on the south of Whitsunday Island. Both of these boast great fringing coral reefs for snorkelling.

Day 2: We paddle north along the eastern coast of Whitsunday Island (usually with the help of the following south easterly winds), stopping off at the entrance of Hill Inlet for a swim and short walk to the lookout with its breathtaking views. From here we continue north to our camp site at Peter Bay.

Day 3: Our journey continues towards Hook Island onto Crayfish Beach in Mackeral Bay. This is a favourite campsite of many paddlers and has to be seen to be appreciated.

Day 4: The day leads us across the northern end of Hook Island - stopping off at Mantaray Bay for lunch and a chance to swim or snorkel before continuing on to the camp spot at either Maureens Cove or Steens Beach (opposite Hayman Island).

Day 5: We head across to Bali Hai (Black Island) and Langford Reef before kayaking along the rugged east coast of Hook Island to our camp site at Curlew Beach inside Maconna Inlet.

Day 6: Kayaking across the Whitsunday passage, we head towards South Molle for lunch and a chance to walk up Mount Jeffries to enjoy the stunning views of the outer and inner islands before our last paddle into Shute Harbour.

Please Note: The exact route for the 6 Day Expeditions will depend on a number of factors such as weather, paddlers' ability, tides and barge availability and may change before or during the trip if required.
