Come on an unforgettable kayak adventure on Sydney's magnificent Harbour. Paddle past all the great Sydney icons before landing your kayak in a secret cove on Goat Island which is right in front of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We'll explore the island before paddling back past Darling Harbour and finishing off next to the Famous Sydney Fish Markets. Professional grade photos included!
