Led by highly-experienced and enthusiastic guides, join a small group of up to 20 like-minded adventurers and create lasting memories immersed in some of the world’s wildest, remotest and most pristine destinations. Paddle over colourful coral reefs, in sheltered bays, where you may encounter dolphins showing off acrobatic skills, among mangroves harbouring nesting seabirds or along spectacular coastal desert landscapes surrounded by sparkling seas and perhaps playful sea lions.

What’s Involved?

Rather than travelling large distances, our aim is to see as much as possible. We paddle anywhere between 5 to 15 kilometres (2 to 4 hours) per outing, sometimes taking a snack and a flask of hot chocolate to enjoy on our excursion.

Each group of 4 to 10 kayakers will have their own intimate exploration of the small hidden bays and coasts that may be inaccessible to the Zodiacs and will also make time for their own shore excursions and wildlife encounters.

When we visit the poles, the elements play an important role. It is important that you have an adventurous attitude and understand that our kayaking time will be affected by the weather that we experience.

Even if your experience is limited, we’’d encourage you to call us to discuss your suitability. There is often ample time to gain the required experience before you depart. Kayakers should be aged 14 years or over.

Equipment Included

  • Kayak & Paddle
  • Neoprene boots
  • Safety gear
  • A 15-litre dry bag
  • Life jackets
  • Pogies (insulated mittens that attach to your paddle)
