9. Sydney: Guided Clearview Kayak Tour of Manly Cove Beaches
Paddle out of Manly in a Clearview kayak that lets you admire the stunning underwater environment of Manly Cove. After a short safety briefing and paddling demonstration, you'll head out with an experienced guide and explore the cove's four beautiful beaches.
With a coffee or tea and snacks in hand, we will paddle to Little Manly, Collins, Store and Quarantine beaches, passing picturesque caves, striking rock formations and mini-waterfalls. You will stop on a secluded beach for a stroll, and there's plenty of time for a swim before we paddle back.
You don't need any previous experience kayaking, as this is a gentle tour at a leisurely pace. Your experienced guides will make sure you have a well-fitted life jacket, and give you a safety briefing and paddling demonstration before we head out.
You are welcome to bring a phone or small camera to capture the views, as we hand out dry bags before setting off.
Note: the Clearview transparent kayaks offer a view right through to the seabed, but they take a little more effort to paddle and have a weight limit of ~90kg. You may choose a single or double sit on top kayak if you would prefer. The single kayaks are streamlined and fast, or choose a double kayak if you'd like to share the paddling in a sturdier ride.
Children under 10 can join with an adult (or two) on double kayaks (which have a middle seat). Children 10-18 must be accompanied by an adult, but can paddle solo.
In the case of unsuitable weather, we will postpone the tour the evening before.
