One of the best times of the day to go kayaking is nice and early when the sun is just waking up and the water is flat and glassey. Even better, when you are in a crystal kayak and can see down into the turquoise water below.
This early morning paddle will start from the boat ramp at Manly Sailing where you will be greeted with coffee and a smile. The guide will bring you up to speed on the experience and equipment as well as weather conditions throughout the tour. Then you’ll make your way down and around Smeldley’s Point and across to Quarantine Beach, from there you will hug the shore line up to Store Beach, then continue on up to Collins Flat Beach. We will allocate a beach on the day for refreshments depending on wind direction and weather conditions. After taking a break, enjoying the refreshments and recuperating, you’ll make your way back along the coast line, passing Little Manly Beach and back to Manly Sailing.
This is a gentle paddle, you don’t need to have any previous experience kayaking. Our guides will help you get setup when you arrive, providing you with the equipment you need and ensuring that you have a correctly fitting lifejacket.
Unfortunately we cannot control the weather. We will postpone the tour the evening before if the forecast is not suitable for kayaking.
What to bring/wear:
Parking can be tricky in Manly so please leave sufficient time if driving to find a spot.
