After learning to steer your tandem kayak, set out from Clarkes Beach and enjoy waterside views of landmarks like the Byron Bay lighthouse, the Julian Rocks, Wategos millionaire row and Cape Byron. Keep a look out for dolphins, sea turtles and whales as you cruise around the bay, then cool off with a swim before heading back to shore.
What to Expect
A highlight of your stay in Byron Bay will be this ocean adventure kayaking up close with dolphins, whales and turtles in Cape Byron's Marine National Park and learning the local Aboriginal stories and sacred places.

You will also have a great view of Byron's coast line and the stunning Byron Bay lighthouse , which was built in 1901,from the water.

Your three hour kayak tour will start at Clarkes Beach, Byron Bay. This is the calmest part of the Bay, easy for launching a kayak. Meet your super friendly guide and all your fellow paddlers. Your guide will help you with your looking safety gear. Pair up on a two person kayak and learn the basics of paddling your kayak.

It is then time to hit the ocean. Impress your friends (and yoursef) by getting out past the shore break. Learn about local Aboriginal stories and sacred places, Hear the Dreamtime stories about Nguthungulli (Julian Rocks). Paddle along The Pass surfing Mecca, Wategos millionaire row and Walgun (Cape Byron), Australia's most Easterly point.

Keep an eye out for amazing local dolphins, humpback Whales (during their annual migration from May to October) and a variety of turtles popping up for a breath of fresh air. Kayak over volcanic reef and be amazed by the clear water, color and variety of the tropical fish.

Take a break with some yummy refreshments and a swim before paddling back to Main Beach. Enjoy the stunning view of the Byron Bay coastline and lighthouse whilst paddling back to shore. You might like to surf a wave back to shore. Your guide will show you how, kayak surfing is awesome fun.

Tell all your friends what an incredible time you had paddling with dolphins, whales and turtles on your Byron Bay kayak tour.
