Our team is passionate about all paddle sports, passionate about being out on the water and living our dream, to take time - enjoy life. Our passion is infectious.

Great 2 hour trip including mini break/ picnic. Easy pace, perfect way to see the coastline from the water. Will definitely go back and do the longer tour.

I would highly recommend this free lesson to anyone looking to get into kayaking. Despite the drizzling rain at the start at least it wasn't cold. Our instructor Ben was very knowledgeable and patient, explaining everything to us clearly before giving us time for practise and helping us with constructive criticism. I will definitely be returning for another lesson and... More

My wife and I are both in our early 60's and we did the Beginners Lesson. Just to be able to paddle a kayak around the Marina and then head across Middle Harbour to Clontarf Beach is wonderful in itself. But the added value is that you learn heaps about handling a kayak. A really great activity in a beautiful... More

Extremely worthwhile. Learned and practised many techniques of rescue as well as various tips with regards to paddling and getting in and out of kayak. Angela, our instructor went well beyond the call of duty. She was very patient and an excellent teacher. The venue is all in an idyllic spot. Would definitely return to do the tours.

4 hour Eco Tour on a Sunday morning in August. Sea was calm and sun was shining. Temperature was 14 degrees so felt a bit cold, but received good advice about what to wear (no cotton clothing) so was warm enough. Received good information about the area and points of interest. Paddled as far as the National Park and stopped... More

I've been going to SHK for nearly 15 years. Great service, expertise and gear. There is simply no better place to put your toe in the water and try kayaking. You'll wonder why you didn't try it earlier.

Fantastic day spent at SHK doing the FREE introductory kayak/safety lessons. Ben, the instructor, has a knowledge of kayaking far beyond his years and he made sure everyone was able to do whay was needed before moving on. A great day. Thank you.
