Port Douglas Half-Day Kayak Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your kayak tour starts by meeting your guide at a location specified the day before; various locations around Port Douglas are used for departure depending on the current weather and tides, giving you the best chance to see wildlife during the tour.

    Both novices and experienced kayakers are welcome on this tour, with only moderate fitness required. As you paddle leisurely across the water, admire the diversity of the birds and marine life. The equipment used is tailored to suit weather, tides, and your level of experience, allowing you to get the most out of your time on the water.

    Described as "fanatical kayakers," the tour guides have decades of experience in kayaking and introducing people to kayaking for the first time.
