What you can expect

A highlight of your stay in Byron Bay will be this ocean sea kayaking adventure that will see you paddling into the open water with dolphins while learning about the local Aboriginal stories and sacred places. You can surf Byron Bay's waves out at Cape Byron, Wategos or The Pass in your kayak and even see Byron's iconic Lighthouse from the comfort of your kayak. If you're booking during whale season, you might be lucky enough to see some of the migrating Humpback Whales up close and personal.

Paddle along The Pass surfing mecca, Wategos millionaire row and Cape Byron, Australia's most Easterly point and keep an eye out for those cheeky dolphins! Their 2.5 hour tour will take you on an incredible outdoor adventure with morning/afternoon tea suplied as well as free photos and all necessary equipment. Tours depart the Cape Byron Marine Park all year round twice a day at 9:30am and 2pm. Everyone is welcome to enjoy a sea kayaking tour off Byron Bay, however those who can't swim are asked to advise your guide before you leave to ensure you're properly fitted with a lifejacket for your safety.

Amazing trip

Amazing trip! You have to do this if you are in Byron Bay. The guys running it were energetic and passionate making the experience interesting and fun. A bonus was they took lots of photos for you so you could be in the moment! 100% recommend it plus they are eco-friendly!

We did the dolphin kayaking tour in Byron Bay

We did the dolphin kayaking tour in Byron Bay. This was amazing! We saw turtles along the way and then when we got out at sea we saw a group of dolphins all swimming the wave, this really made the experience for us! The crew were really good and made sure everyone was okay, the only annoying thing would be the waiting around for everyone to get out to see in the kayaks this can take quite a while and feels like it takes time off your experience!

Tour was good value

Tour was good value. All materials provided were of good quality. The instructors were helpful and friendly. The experience is great as you get to see Byron Bay and its native wildlife from the water. The views the tour provide are excellent and the guides are knowledgeable about the wildlife and the town making the trip very informative. The good aspect of this tour is that they are eco-conscious and don't harass the animals they encounter. The pick up is a nice bonus as some hostels are quite removed from the beach location. Overall I had a great time with this very sporty and fun activity.
