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 is perfect for you!
Wake up and head down to Lavender Bay at a much more sociable time of 8am 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 Lavender Bay and across to Luna Park, where you can take some spectacular photos of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. You’ll then head under the bridge and around the harbours edge, seeing our magnificent city skyline and waterside parks across the water. Paddle past the famous Kirribilli house and around into Neutral Bay.
After a good 45 minute paddle from Lavender Bay, you’ll arrive in Neutral Bay, where 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 boat ramp. You will then get ready and be out on the water once everyone is 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 paddlers, by a professional Kayak 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.
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.
What to bring/wear
Wear light, comfortable clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet (from paddle splash).
Hat, sunnies and long sleeves for sun protection.
You are likely to get wet from paddle splash, so bring spare clothes to change into.
A towel to dry off after the paddle.
Phone/camera, so you can take your own photos (our Guide
will take photos, too).
Current launch location is Lavender Bay Boat Ramp. Make sure you plan how you’re going to get to the boat ramp for the scheduled arrival time.
Lavender Bay Boat Ramp is on Railway Avenue, which is at the bottom of Lavender Crescent, just under the railway arch. You should see our colourful kayaks at the boat ramp, along with our friendly Guide, setting everything up.
