Sydney By Kayak is an award winning, family kayak tour business, offering exclusive, small group kayak tours and locals paddles on beautiful Sydney Harbour, Australia. Starting each day with our signature kayak tour, the “Sunrise Kayak and Coffee” and romantic Couples tours, it is an incredible way to start the day.
Kayak tours on Sydney Harbour are run throughout the morning, offering mid-morning Social Kayak tours, as well as “Kayak and Ice-cream” tours during the warmer months. For locals and for those who are looking to make a difference in the environment, the team run community clean-up paddles, for both individuals and corporate teams. This helps keep Sydney Harbour clean and doubles as a great team building activity.
The team were proud silver award winners of the prestigious NSW Tourism Awards in 2019, taking home second prize in the Ecotourism category. Being a family business with such a strong focus on the environment, this was an immensely proud moment for the team.
In the early days, the main focus was on kayaking for fitness and making a difference on the local environment. Founder, Laura Stone took locals out for morning exercise sessions, as well as clean-up paddles before work. With the introduction of coffee and growing Instagram trends, Sydney by Kayak very quickly entered the tourism space, offering an award-winning Sunrise Kayak Tour, attracting paddlers from all over the world.
Sydney by Kayak is still young, officially launching in 2013. The vision was to create exclusive, small group tours, offering not only a guided kayak tour, but a complete 5-star experience on Sydney Harbour. Everything from fresh, hot coffee on the water and stable custom-made kayaks. As well as memorable photos and experienced, qualified, and friendly kayak guides and instructors. We are proud to offer great kayaking adventures that are a wonderful way to enjoy the magnificent waterways of Sydney Harbour.
