If you love kayaking and would LOVE to help keep our Sydney waterways clean and safe, why not join our Kayak Instructor, Laura, for an hour or so of leisurely paddling around the smooth waters of Sydney Harbour, as we pick up rubbish from the foreshore and waterways.
FREE Kayak and Safety Equipment
All kayaking and safety equipment will be provided, including a stable, single sit-in kayak, a life-jacket and paddle, plus a sociable and safe, guided paddle with a qualified Kayak Instructor. Water and sunscreen will also be provided, along with optional rubber gloves and a bucket to put your rubbish in.
Booking is essential – Click here to book (It is FREE, but you must book!)
Getting fit, while giving back!
Although these paddles will be a more leisurely pace, you will still benefit from the low-impact resistance exercise and cardiovascular training. Your energetic and experienced Instructor will also be on hand to assist with postural technique and passing on tips and skills as you paddle.
All of this while giving back to our environment!
Prize each week for the most rubbish collected!
$10 kayaking credit is on offer for the person with the most rubbish in their bucket! This can be used for other Kayaking activities with Fitness Angels and Sydney by Kayak. Save up your credit and join us for one of our longer weekend tours or try one of our Kayak Netball games!
Why for FREE?
Why are we doing this for free? We feel it is important to look after our environment. We want to build a community of kayakers, who love and appreciate Sydney’s waterways as much as we do. We have partnered with North Sydney Council to help educate school children and our regular paddlers about the environment, and how we can all make a big difference, by each only doing a little.
Locations for this FREE Paddle and Clean-up
We will be running this FREE paddle in Tunks Park and Lavender Bay on different days and times. Please check our online booking system for locations, times and availability here.
Gaining valuable paddling experience
This is a great way to get out on the harbour and get some kayaking experience on smooth waters, accompanied by an experience and friendly Kayak Instructor.
There are no catches or hidden fees, but you must book and reserve your kayak on our booking system here. as we only have 9 kayaks available.
PLEASE NOTE ***IMPORTANT INFORMATION**
If people book on our booking system (through our website), but do not turn up on the day, priority will be given to other paddlers in future paddles.
If this regular Sydney Harbour Clean-up Paddle is successful, we hope to run this paddle every week and would welcome paddler’s to join us on a regular basis. Please do not abuse this FREE paddle and the booking options by saying you are coming and not showing up. We only have 9 kayaks, so we want to make sure everyone who wants to paddle, has the opportunity to.
