The Sydney Harbour Kayaks experience is more than just about going on a tour, buying or renting a kayak. 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.

We kayaked from the Spit Bridge up past Seaforth and Beauty Point and then on into Garigal National Park. It was truly a stunning Sunday morning on the water.

I spent a morning on a group tour with Fernando. The pace was perfect for an introduction to kayaking and many interesting historical stories were told throughout. A pleasant morning tea on the shore of middle harbour added to the experience and I will most definitely be heading back some time soon.
