A must-see for any East Coast adventurer, Australia’s Whitsunday Islands are the perfect place to relax for a few days and go exploring. Get off the beaten track and experience the beauty of this incredible island archipelago on this half-day sea kayaking adventure from Airlie Beach.


Departing from Airlie Beach bright and early at 8:30am, this epic morning extravaganza begins with a short drive to our jump-off point at Shute Harbour. Let our expert guides lead the way as we paddle through the crystal clear water, kayaking over fringing coral reefs and exploring nearby tropical islands.


These beautiful islands are home to some of the world’s most amazing marine and bird life, including giant sea turtles, dolphins and soaring eagles. Over the summer months, you may even get the opportunity to encounter a magnificent humpback whale as they migrate to give birth in the warm sea before they return to icy Antarctica. 


After kayaking through the inner harbour islands, we cross over to nearby White Rock. Take a break from paddling and dive into the beautiful clear water, snorkel through breathtaking coral reefs and relax on the warm white sands. Revitalise yourself with ice cold beverages and a delicious cheese and fruit platter before we climb back into our kayaks and take to the water, enjoying one last glimpse of the incredible marine life and picture-perfect panoramas before we head back to the mainland by 12:15pm.
