Did the 2 hour tour with another couple on a cloudy and fairly windy morning. We are fairly experienced kayakers, but learned a few useful tips from Sophie's instruction. Kayaks are open topped, but very stable in moderate swells and 15 knot winds. Great views...More

Had an amazing tour starting at 6.15am in the morning which is a great time to go out, the harbour was so quiet. Sophie, our tour guide, was so nice and chatty and did very well with explaining things. Also, she takes amazing photos!

There’s no better way to explore Sydney than out of the water with Sophie! You’ll get instructions how to paddle, excellent equipment, pictures & a sightseeing tour. Even if the sun isn’t shining, Sophie’s such a sunshine and takes you on a fun tour.
