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. So when you're out on one of our tours kayaking into Middle Harbour, on a Freedom Rental kayaking to Balmoral or in our shop buying a kayak, we're here to guide, instruct and inspire you. Sydney Harbour Kayaks has been renting & selling kayaks, teaching kayaking and guiding tours around Middle Harbour from the Spit Bridge since 1991. Our kayak, surf-ski & stand up paddle board rental fleets are some of the best around, we offer a mix of plastic and composite sea kayaks as well as surf-skis, the SUP's are from SUPLove. Our rental location is at the Spit Bridge in Mosman and you can paddle throughout all of Middle Harbour. We take great pride in our kayaking tours and aim to offer the best possible experience. Our backyard is the beautiful Middle Harbour and we get no more enjoyment then showing it off to our many visitors. The kayak tours and team-building activities are a lot of fun and offer a wholesome day out on the water. Lessons are our speciality and we teach from beginners through to a Professional level. If you are just learning about kayaking or stand up paddle boarding then you should try our Paddle Safe / Paddle Smart Program, which are FREE kayaking lessons. « less

booked a group of 16 people to go for a birthday kayak with SHK - sunday morning winter explorer coffee tour. SHK got us an excellent price which was a bonus! July and august are the dry-est months in australia and we had an absolutely blissful heavenly day 15ºC light breeze calm. The crew were friendly and helpful, even telling... 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.

I always wanted to learn, and finally booked. I had to postpone my lesson but they were great and I was able to postpone it without any issues, We spent three hours on the water and it was so much fun! Will go again for the lessons.

My g/f and I were first-time kayakers. We realised the experience was a little overpriced ($99 per person). Yes, it includes a light snack, tea, and coffee half-way through the experience (4 hour eco tour). I paid $12 for camera renta, which kept rebooting itself after each photo, ruining some of the experience. The staff didn't really care about that,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Sydney Harbour Kayaks eco-tour. Connell was an excellent guide and took us to some truly beautiful parts of the harbour that we hadn’t visited before, as well as providing new information on many of the places we had already been to. The tour was relaxing, fun and informative.

We had an enjoyable 2 hour coffee tour with our guide Ange. The weather was amazing when we were in sydney - 21deg,sunny, very blue skies. Therefore, perfect for an afternoon kayak trip. We booked online and were scheduled for the coffeetour which was almost cancelled (note : they need min 6 pax to start) but it was all good... More

I did the Eco tour, which is an organized tour that takes about 4 hours. The tour started with an introductory short course on kayaking for those who have never done it before. We (a group of five people + our guide) started paddling in the marina around the Spit Bridge and kept on until we reached a quite small... More

I can really recommend these free training 3 x hour lessons. The standard of teaching was very professional. It was inclusive, respectful, fun, highly educational and a 'must-do' if you have ever thought of hiring a kayak, or joining a trip. I am a 71 year old woman, a rank beginner, and must get fit and skilled by the end... More

Excellent product (SUP hire 2 boards); staff very friendly. However, they hadn't read my email from previous day or heard my voice msg booking them. They actually rang me 2 days later replying to my voice msg!
