Description:

Sea kayaking is one of the best ways to explore the coastline and islands...

Sea kayaking is one of the best ways to explore the coastline and islands of tropical north Queensland. We have amazing encounters with dolphins, turtles, stingrays and other marine life while paddling around history rich Double Island. Tours are offered year-round catering equally for those seeking a peaceful paddle or a bit of adventure. Our sunrise and half-day tours run daily. Paddling techniques and safety information are clearly explained and demonstrated. Our highly stable single and double, sit on top, kayaks are well suited for beginners to experienced kayakers. Each tour visits Double Island and includes fresh fruits, sweet treats and juices. Half-day tours include snorkelling.

The wife and I really enjoyed our tour out to Double Island, the wild life and mini coral reef was great, guide was very good making sure we saw all that he found, nice fruit snacks was given a one on the stops, would recommend Palm Cove Watersports if you are looking for something a little strenuous but adventurous.

A two hour kayaking trip out to the island. Brad was brilliant and very knowledgeable about the reef and the island. He also took us into a cave on the far side of the island which was great fun! A perfect way to start the day in Palm Cove!

Jeremy was an excellent guide and knew a lot about the area, ecosystem and history. A very relaxing kayak to double island, morning tea and then -a new experience for us-stand up paddle boarding. A two minute lesson and Jeremy had us up and paddling with ease. When we got back to shore, Jeremy told us it was the first... More

Had a great morning kayaking out to Scout-hat and Double islands under the supervision of Brad. Wake yourself up with a paddle across the bay to Scout-hat island for a snorkel and search for sea-cucumbers. Then around the back of double island (spot some turtles on the way), and grab some fruit/muffins on the beach looking out to sea. Brad... More

Great day out on the water from Palm cove. Weather was perfect and we were lucky enough to be the only ones in the tour. As locals we had the best time finally getting out to visit Double Island and Scouts Hat and learnt quite a bit from Brad our guide. Highly recommend this experience for both visitors and locals.
