What to Expect

This amazing kayaking tour is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in nature along the stunning Rainbow Beach Coast and Great Sandy National Park. 


Only accessible by 4WD, Pelican Bay is located south of Inskip Point, on the western side of the Inskip Peninsula. As such, it's protected from the wind and waves of the ocean, providing calm, flat waters which are ideal for safe, fun, and easy kayaking for all experiences. 


Heading out at high tide, you'll paddle along the mangrove ecosystem that is home to a large number of turtles that feed and rest here. The area also provides a very important food source for other local marine life including stingrays, sea birds, crabs.


This is an excellent day out for the whole family with very little effort needed in very flat and shallow waters. Just remember to bring swimwear, sunscreen, water, towel, hats, snacks, a camera and a change of clothes.

There are a number of best practices we encourage when on tour within the Great Sandy National Park to ensure strong conservation and sustainable practices in the protection of the important ecosystem. Some of these include:

Staying clear of highly sensitive areas such as nesting sites, sand dunes and important vegetation. This includes walking on, climbing, collecting, defacing or interfering.

Picking up any litter or foreign objects and place them in trailer boxes and removing all your items and waste on completion of your visit. Leave only footprints!

Applying sunscreen at least 15 minutes before entering the water to minimise water pollution.

Observing and enjoying wildlife whilst doing so with minimum disturbance.

We are highly experienced in reading weather forecasts and observations for Double Island Point. If we see conditions are not suitable for the tour. We will contact you as soon as possible to find a more suitable time. There is no need for contacting us yourself as public weather websites are not as accurate; especially for a remote national park as Double Island!

Generally, tours still operate in rain and we have had many rewarding experiences in these conditions. We do not operate in electrical storms, large swells and extreme wind.
