What you can expect

Explore the beautiful waters of Western Australia on this beginner-friendly guided sea kayaking tour around Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. On this tour, you'll have the chance to encounter some of Australia's wonderful wildlife, including sea lions, pelicans, and little penguins—maybe even a dolphin or two if you're lucky. Starting the day at Safety Bay, you'll be outfitted with a sun shirt, hat, life jacket, and snorkelling gear before a quick kayaking lesson. Along the way, you'll visit Penguin Island and Seal Island and pause for a well-deserved picnic break to refuel. So grab your paddle and discover the wonders of the Aussie coastline from a unique perspective.
