Full description
Enjoy this fun-filled and easy 2-hour kayak experience, paddle one way and get transported by a vehicle the other. Whether you're a beginner or just after an easy, relaxing paddle, this is a great activity to get a taste of life on the water. 

After pick-up from your local accommodation, arrive at the beach-side kayak base to be equipped with everything you need. Your friendly guide will pair you up then fit you with a lifejacket, paddles and double kayak. Store your belongings in the secure base, where you can collect them after the tour. Water pistols, balls, and frisbees also come along for the ride, so prepare yourself for a fun couple of hours.

While on the water, feel the spray from the unique horseshoe-shaped Haruru Falls, be fascinated by the surrounding mangrove forest and admire the local wildlife.
