Mum’s Social Kayak and Coffee
If you’re a local mum, looking for a fun and sociable way of keeping fit, join our weekly mums paddle from Tunks Park in Northbridge, up through the calm waters of Middle Harbour, where you’ll enjoy a fresh, hot coffee at Plonk cafe at the Spit Bridge.
As you sit and glance across the gorgeous turquoise water in front of the cafe, you can relax with other mums, knowing you are getting your fitness in for the day, whilst catching up with the girls.
This morning paddle is perfect for beginners and experienced kayakers. The paddle to and from the café is around 40-50 minutes, depending on the speed of the group.
The tour departs from Tunks Park boat ramp, where you will be greeted by your Guide, who will assist in helping you get ready for the tour, including a safety briefing, life-jacket fitting and setting up your kayak for paddling.
The time advertised on the schedule is the time you are required to arrive at the boat ramp. You will then get ready and be out on the water within 15-20 minutes. Your Guide will assist you in getting into your kayak and will offer tips and techniques on paddling with good posture and optimal fitness.
You don’t need to be an experienced kayaker as our kayaks are really stable and you will be instructed and guided in a small group of just 9 paddlers, guided by a professional Kayak Instructor/Guide. You will be taken through a safety briefing before departure and will be provided with all equipment needed for the paddle, including a single, glass bottom kayak with stable double keels and comfortable seats.
What’s included in the tour:
All equipment hire, including a single sit-inside Grifinn Kayak, paddle and life-jacket.
A dry bag for your phone, keys and camera. (You can also leave these securely in our kayak van).
A qualified, friendly and experienced Kayak Guide/Instructor.
An exclusive, small group of just 10 people, including your Guide.
Full safety briefing and kayak instruction prior to departure.
A pre-ordered coffee to enjoy when you arrive at the Spit.
