The sheltered, mangrove lined creeks are home to a fascinating array of marine life, birds and the Port River Dolphins. The Ship's Graveyard is another unique feature of this area with over 20 ship wrecks to explore.

Tours are conducted in double sea kayaks which are very comfortable and easy to use with rudders for steering. No prior experience of kayaking is required, just a sense of adventure! Participants should wear clothing to suit the temperature of the day, shoes/sandals may get wet. Bring a camera; a waterproof container is provided.
