If you want to experience Sydney Harbour from a kayak, but you’re really not a morning person, our Sydney Harbour Kayak and Brunch Tour might be just what you’re looking for.
Wake up and head down to Willoughby Street Pontoon, a 5 minute walk from Milsons Point station, at a sociable time of 9.30am and join our Kayak Guide on a three hour paddle and sit-down brunch at Neutral Bays waterfront café, Thelma and Louise.
After your paddle briefing, you’ll be guided out of the bay and around towards Kirribilli point, where you can take some spectacular photos of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
Once you’ve taken a few good photos and worked up an appetite, you’ll head to Thelma and Louise café for a tasty brunch and hot coffee. What better way to start the day!
The time advertised on the schedule is the time you are required to arrive at the pontoon. You will then get ready and be out on the water once you’re briefed and ready with life-jackets on and kayaks set up.
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 8 paddlers, by a professional Kayak Instructor and experienced Co-Guide, however, if you have never kayaked before, please consider our couples tours or a private lesson before you join one of our group tours, so our Guides can safely Guide the group together. You will be taken through a safety briefing before departure and will be provided with all equipment needed for the paddle, including a single 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.
An exclusive, small group of paddlers.
Full safety briefing and kayak instruction prior to departure.
A sit down brunch at Thelma and Louise café in Neutral Bay.
Photos of the tour, including shots in front of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

Wear light, comfortable clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet (from paddle splash).
Hat, sunglasses and long sleeves for sun protection, and a jacket/wind-breaker during cooler months.
You are likely to get wet from paddle splash, so bring spare clothes to change into.
A towel to dry off after the paddle.
