Why do we love this

This kayaking tour has it all. We love that you get to see some of Rainbow Beaches most iconic sights, and of course, the chance to meet friendly dolphins and turtles is pretty cool!

You'll begin your journey with the Great Beach Drive that will take you through the uncrowded, untouched scenery of Rainbow Beach.  Discover the coloured sand cliffs and enjoy the amazing sense of freedom these remote beaches offer. 

Next, it's time to make your way to the spectacular headland of Double Island Point. With mesmerising beach and ocean views, this is the perfect place for a spot of kayaking. Learn the basics with a safety briefing on the beach, then take your paddle and get exploring!

While you make your way through the pristine waters, you'll be treated to a once in a lifetime experience, coming face-to-face with dolphins and turtles!

Later, after exploring the incredible scenery and meeting marine life in the water, it's time to make the return trip to Rainbow Beach. Take the Great Beach Drive back for one last hurrah.

Liability disclosure conditions: All health/medical conditions must be informed to Epic Ocean Adventures staff before departure & detailed on completing participant declaration.

Participants active in aqua tours & lessons must be able to swim competently.

Epic Ocean Adventures reserves the right to change or cancel tours/ lessons on the rare occasion due to poor or dangerous weather and beach conditions.

Real-time assessment may result in cancellation before departure, on arrival or during the tour. Refund less the deposit is issued if unable to operate prior to departure due to weather constraints and participants are unable to re book or participate in another activity. If cancellation occurs during the tour or on arrival to location, deposit will be non-refundable to cover transportation and park fee costs.

Wildlife: Due to the natural and non-contrived environment in which tours operate, Epic Ocean Adventures cannot guarantee sighting of dolphins or any other marine life within the Great Sandy National Park. Nevertheless, our success rate is on average 90% for dolphin spotting on tour, and due to the remote location of the tour, the chances are high.

Epic Ocean Adventures does not conduct any commercial whale watching programs and as such does not guarantee any marine life sightings. However, during the whale migration season our kayaking Eco tours often can come across migrating whales and the chances of experiencing the whales pass by in season are high.

Cancellation Policy:

Please reconfirm booking 24-48 hours in advance in case of time change to suit best weather or beach conditions. Any cancellation inside 48 hours is non refundable. Any cancellation within 7 days will incur the deposit non refundable.
If cancellation is made by customer and not by Epic Ocean Adventures regarding weather or any other reason the above policy stands.
