Following pickup at your Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach hotel, head to the Broadwater Tourist Park, where you meet your guide for the morning kayak tour. Receive safety information, paddling instruction, and gear before launching your kayak into the calm Broadwater channel.

As you paddle to nearby islands, be on the lookout for turtles, dolphins, stingrays, and eagles. You might even spot migrating humpback whales, if you’re traveling between May and November. When you reach Wavebreak Island, enjoy a picnic breakfast, and then spend an hour swimming and snorkeling with the provided gear. Continue to South Stradbroke Island, where you stroll the surfing beach while spotting the hundreds of wild golden wallabies that are endemic to the island.

Your 5-hour tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.
