Explore Australia’s breathtaking Whitsunday islands on this epic sea-kayaking adventure. Relax on empty tropical beaches, snorkel over brightly coloured coral reefs and check out the incredible sea life of the Whitsundays. See if you can spot giant sea turtles, dolphins, sea eagles, tropical fish even Humpback whales!


Walk on white sand beaches, trek the Mount Jeffries walking track and enjoy sweeping panoramas of the Whitsunday and Hamilton Islands on this full-day adventure. From beginners to kayaking experts, this tropical island sea kayaking adventure gets you off the beaten track and helps you experience a different side to the beautiful Whitsundays!



We get our day of adventuring off to an early start, with an 8:30am pick up from Airlie Beach before driving about 10km to our jump-off point at Shute Harbour. After a safety briefing, our experienced guide will lead the way as we kayak through the inner harbour islands and cross over to the beautiful White Rock. Dive into the crystal clear waters and snorkel over colourful coral reefs..


After a nice relaxing swim, get ready to paddle across to the Molle Passage and Sandy Bay at South Molle Island. The waters around here are home to beautiful tropical fish, giant sea eagles and the occasional Humpback whale! Enjoy a relaxing paddle as you keep an eye on the skies for soaring sea eagles and scan the ocean for a pod of dolphins. 


When you reach South Molle Island you have time to take in the highlights of this lush tropical paradise. Kick back and relax on the white sandy beach, snorkel through a spectacular coral reef or maybe even hike across the island! Follow the Mount Jeffries walking track and you’ll discover ancient ‘grass trees’ and hundreds of butterflies, as well as the chance to take in truly incredible sweeping views stretching across the Whitsundays from Whitsunday Island and Hamilton Island to the lush Conway State Forest and Shute Harbour.


After a morning of adventuring through the Whitsundays, you'll head back to the beach to enjoy a delicious lunch. That afternoon you'll climb back into our kayaks for some more exploring of this breathtaking island chain before we head back to Airlie Beach at around 4:15pm.
