Paddling with our experienced and qualified guide provides you with the opportunity to experience SO MUCH MORE than renting. Our guides possess a broad knowledge of the Port Stephens waterway such as the knowledge of wind, tide, currents, where dolphins and other wildlife are commonly seen, where to go and where not to go, and much more. All this knowledge can make your time on the water a fun, safe and rewarding experience.

Please note that our tours run on SELECTED DATES ONLY. These dates have been selected professionally by our guides to ensure that tidal strength and direction will provide you with the most safest and rewarding experience possible.
