Sea kayaking Island experience!

Based in the spectacular Whitsunday Islands, Salty Dog's Sea Kayaking Expeditions have been operating since 1997. Comprising more than 70 islands, the Whitsunday Island Group is the largest offshore island chain on the east coast of Australia. And as part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, its tropical, clear, warm waters offer some of the most breathtaking and accessible paddling in the world. Join us for an unforgettable experience on a fully-guided tour, or hire your own!

Salty Dogs Sea Kayaking Adventures is a family owned and operated business - their passion for adventurous water sports led them to this amazing part of the world and now they share their love of nature and sea kayaking with visitors like you! Sea Kayaking guides are carefully selected, as much for their character and local knowledge as their more obvious sea kayaking skills. They are without exception extremely experienced and fully qualified and importantly love their job and lifestyle. The kayaks and equipment are replaced regularly to ensure the best standard of equipment is available to our clients.

Tours Options: 

1. Half Day Inner Island Turtle Tour

This is without doubt our most popular guided trip, which can be appreciated by both experienced paddlers and beginners, with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment.

Departing from our base at Shute Harbour, we kayak over fringing coral reefs and explore nearby tropical islands. These turquoise waters and islands are home to an amazing diversity of marine and bird-life including sea turtles and soaring eagles. Between July and September, there is also a chance to encounter the magnificent humpback whales which arrive to give birth before returning to the Antarctic. We stop off at White Rock, allowing time to swim, explore the island or kick back and relax. Cold drinks and a cheese and fruit platter are provided, allowing time to refresh before heading back to Shute Harbour.

NOTE: Guides occasionally need to reroute the trip, (if weather/sea conditions make it too difficult to get to White Rock). If possible we head to Cane Cockies Beach.

DEPARTS/RETURNS:

  • Pick-up's from Airlie Beach start at 8:30am (approx.)
  • Return coach arrives back to Airlie beach at 12.15pm (approx.)

SUITABLE FOR: 

  • Beginners to experienced paddlers
  • Children welcome - age 7 upwards, (1 adult per child)

2. Full Day Tropical Island Tour
Approximately 10-12 kms.

Enjoy a great day of sea kayaking in the Whitsundays with an experienced guide and a small group of paddlers.

Kayaking directly from our waterfront base at Shute Harbour, paddlers wind their way through the inner islands before heading out to nearby White Rock. Time is spent here relaxing and swimming before crossing to South Molle Island. The waters off the Molle Islands are home to sea turtles, dolphins, soaring sea eagles and a myriad of colourful tropical fish. The migrating humpback whales can be spotted when they frequent the area between July and September.

There is time to trek part of the Mount Jeffries Walking Track, lined with ancient grass trees which attract many varieties of butterflies. The walk boasts panoramic views across the Whitsunday Islands, the vast Conway State Forest plus Sandy Bay and Shute Harbour. If conditions are favourable, there may be an opportunity to snorkel the fringing coral reef accessed directly from the beach.

A mouth-watering beach-based buffet lunch is provided before kayaking back to Shute Harbour in the afternoon. This tour provides a more in-depth introduction to the islands giving participants the opportunity to gain a more intimate connection with this magical part of the world.
