The Byron Bay Sea Kayak Tour

The Byron Bay Sea Kayak Tour


Duration: 2 to 2.5 hours. Tours run all year round, 7 days a week, twice daily. Anyone from 5yrs old and upwards can join us for this kayak tour.


This guided tour is the perfect Byron Bay experience. Join our passionate team of local surf lifesavers for an unforgettable kayak to Australia’s most easterly point. The Cape Bay Marine Park is home to wild bottlenose dolphins, humpback whales and three species of sea turtle, so keep your eyes peeled for them as you glide along the clear blue ocean. Imagine seeing Happy wild Dolphins in their own habitat. We ensure our interactions are non intrusive and don’t disturb these beautiful sea creatures.

Oh, and prepare to save the best for last as your guide teaches you to surf your kayak back to shore!
