On this half-day tour from Airlie Beach, you'll explore nearby tropical islands and encounter the incredible natural beauty of Australia’s famous Whitsunday Islands. This area is a must-see for any East Coast adventurer - it's the perfect place to relax but at the same time full of adventure!
This tour is suitable for all levels, from beginners to experienced paddlers.
Departing from Airlie Beach bright and early at 8:30 am, your morning begins with a short drive to the jump-off point at Shute Harbour. Your expert guides will lead the way as you paddle through turquoise waters. Kayak over fringing coral reefs and explore the nearby White Rock and enjoy this beautiful water oasis.
These incredible islands are home to some of the world’s most unique marine and bird life, including sea turtles and soaring eagles. Over the winter months, you might even encounter a humpback whale as they migrate to give birth in the warm sea before returning to Antarctica.
After kayaking through the inner harbour islands, you'll cross over to nearby White Rock. Take a break from paddling and dive into the beautiful turquoise water or relax on the warm coral beach. Revitalise yourself with ice cold beverages and a delicious cheese and fruit platter before climbing back into your kayak for a final paddle.
Enjoy one last glimpse of the incredible marine life and picture-perfect panoramas as you head back to the mainland by 12.00 pm.
