WHAT TO EXPECT
Go on a neat adventure on the Harriet River, as you experience the wildlife and magnificent scenery on Kangaroo Island’s south coast.
This fun 2-hour tour starts along the shore of the Harriet River, close to where this waterway meets the ocean. Seasoned tour guides run you through the safety briefing, the ins and outs of the kayak, and watch you go on a test ride in the kayak. You can choose to ride a single or double kayak, depending on who you bring along on this journey.
The guided kayak tour is suitable for people of all ages since kids as young as 2 years can already ride along with their parents.
Hit the water in a small tour group, with the experienced and certified kayak instructors by your side. Make your way to the narrower part of the river, where the bush almost hangs over the stream, and the native birds chirp away.
Once you’ve entered the tight passage of the Harriet River, the guides will update you on the plants, trees, bird species and other wildlife hanging out near the riverbank. You’ll even have great chances to spot the most iconic inhabitant of the island: the koala!
Thanks to the relaxing vibe and the wildlife viewings, a kayak tour is one of the most remarkable ways to explore Kangaroo Island.
Pose for a memorable photo while you’re still seated in the kayak, before heading back to the tour operator’s office in Vivonne Bay.
