See wild dolphins and other marine animals during a 3-hour kayak tour from Rainbow Beach. Hundreds of dolphins live in these waters and they often frolic close to the kayaks. Also keep on the lookout for sea turtles, humpback whales (seasonal from June to October), sea birds, manta rays and large schools of fish. Your expert guide provides easy instructions for kayaking; no prior experience is needed. Bonus: your trip starts with a fun ride on the beach by 4WD-vehicle to the boat launch only accessible by 4WD at Double island Point.

For travelers who are new to surfing, getting in the water for the first few waves can be an unnerving challenge. This surf lesson makes it easier by offering one-on-one guidance from a local surf school instructor, who gives lessons in surf awareness, techniques, board handling, and riding. Afterward, the instructor takes you to spots on Rainbow Beach ideal for beginners.
