Overview

We take you on a kayaking adventure on the best part of Sydney harbour. It is surprisingly quiet so no need to worry about ferries or harbour traffic, and the views are simply magnificent. I always include photos on my tours/activities on the harbour and there is no better photo than being in a kayak in front of the iconic Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge to show friends and family. I offer instruction on correct paddling technique and also team building activities to reward your staff with something fun, challenging and invigorating.

Sophie is a great teacher - experienced, easy going and fun. I have taken work colleagues a few times and they are always blown away by the sunrise kayak across the harbour. It’s amazing value for money too. Can’t recommend it enough - thanks Sophie
