Attraction details
Owner description: 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. Tours depart south of the Palm Cove Jetty. Sunrise Tour 6am-7:30am $48 per person. Half-day Tour 8:30-12:30 Adults $88 Children $68 (plus $5 reef tax and insurance fee).

Excellent half day trip over to scouts hat island and double island with Denise. She was very informative relating to the sea life and insects and creatures we encountered. She even provided a cheeky cookie and fruit when we stopped at a secluded beach. Do this guided tour and you will not be disappointed. Well worth the money. This business... More

My partner and I booked a kayak sunrise tour over phone a few days prior. We were pleasantly surprised to find we were the only people on this tour and had our friendly, knowledgable and bubbly guide Denise to ourselves. Myself and my partner would highly recommend this tour to anybody looking for an informative and intimate experience. We are... More

My husband and I scheduled a paddle board trip to Double Island and picked this operator because they are down by the jetty and closest to Double Island (more time to explore and less time paddling out there). We had never been on paddleboards and after a short lesson I got right up but my husband chose a kayak instead... More

Absolutely great! I had a great time with my mate snorkelling and kayaking around Double island and Scouts Hat. It's just a prime example of someone who really knows what they are doing, doing what they love. Leaving reviews isn't something that I would normally do but I just had to find the time for this guy. There isn't anything... More

I had a great morning kayaking with Shannon and a few others. He has a great attitude even though admittedly I was not the greatest kayaker and made sure I was all good and keeping up. Brad was easy to contact and was very helpful and friendly when I had questions about the tour. I would definitely recommend doing the... More

We had a great time on our trip with Brad, who clearly knows the sea conditions and local area very well. The sea become quite choppy overnight and the water visibility less good - Brad advised us of the conditions and was happy for us to cancel but we decided to go ahead and had a fantastic paddle to Scout...
