Spend a full day sea kayaking through the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park and get up close and personal with Australian wildlife in and out of the water. Take a guided walk to explore Penguin Island and enjoy snorkelling among the limestone reef full of marine life. Its a fun filled day out for those of all ages. Penguin and Seal Island are part of Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, which is approximately 45 minutes south of Perth City or 5 minutes south of Rockingham. Sea kayaking is a fantastic way to explore these rugged limestone islands (approx 1km offshore) and their unique wildlife including: Australia SeaLions, Little Blue Penguins, Colonies of Pelicans and thousands of other sea birds that use these islands as safe nesting places. We also offer snorkelling during the warm summer months as a way of exploring these shallow waters, limestone reefs and fish life. We Provide: Double sea kayaks (traditional sit inside, with rudders for comfortable cruising), paddles, lifejackets, long sleeve sun shirts, hats, dry bags (for valuables), snorkelling gear (during the warmer summer months), entry fee into the Penguin Discovery Centre, qualified guide, morning tea/lunch (we can cater for dietary requirements), transport to and from Rockingham Train Station, smiles, wildlife and a great time! You Bring: Drinking water, sunscreen, bathers/boardies, camera, thongs/sandals/crocs. A jacket can be handy during the cooler spring and autumn months. Some people like a change of clothes to put on after the paddle. When: 26th September 2015 to 25th April 2016 Minimum Number: 2 Persons Pick Up: Rockingham Train Station- Please be there for a 7.55 pick up, we will be driving a white van towing a trailer load of yellow sea kayaks.

This was a fantastic mother-daughter day out. We loved every minute and re-live the thrill of getting up close with the animals over and over as the months go by. Tours in the wild like this are the way of the future!
