About Coral Sea Kayaking
We offer expedition sea kayak trips to the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park in Far North Queensland and to the Louisiades Archipelago in Papua New Guinea. Our flagship expedition is our 7-day Hinchinbrook Island paddle, one of the worlds great sea kayak journeys. Our 12 Day Paddle to Panasia expedition in the Louisiade Archipelago is a trip of a lifetime and well worth the effort. We also offer expedition sea kayak, sit-on-top kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard hire out of Mission Beach, Queensland.
