  • Dolphin View Kayak and Great Beach Drive Tour from Noosa

    1. Dolphin View Kayak and Great Beach Drive Tour from Noosa

    Begin your 6-hour program with a Great Beach Drive in Great Sandy National Park. Head to Double Island Point for views of Fraser Island and the colored sands of Rainbow Beach. Head out on a kayaking tour around the headland and admire the beauty of your surroundings and the Double Island Point Lighthouse from a unique perspective. Bottlenose dolphin pods are often seen in the area, feeding on large schools of fish. They’re usually as curious about you as you are about them, so be prepared for an experience of a lifetime! In addition, see local and migrating wildlife, including humpback whales (June-November), turtles, manta rays, stingrays, and migrating sea birds.

    We had an amazing day! We were so lucky to see 5 whales and several pods of dolphins that were so close to us. Vince was a great tour guide/instructor, he’s so passionate about what he does. Thanks

What people are saying about Sunshine Coast

What an amazing, surreal experience! The Sunreef staff are absolutely delightful. We were treated so lovely from the moment we stepped into the shop. This experience was worth every cent and more. The snorkelling gear made us so buoyant, that being in the water for two hours was a breeze. No fatigue whatsoever. I was absolutely delighted when I saw the sea life come into view. Felt like I was in another world. For someone so scared of sharks, I had absolutely no fear, felt completely safe and fully embraced the experience. The colours were amazing. But the highlight had to be the beautiful turtles. They were absolutely gorgeous. So calm and peaceful. Just hanging round without a care in the world. Olivia was our gorgeous guide who was full of knowledge and answered every question with obvious passion of the ocean. This is an experience not to be missed and an absolute bargain! Thank you Sunreef! You have two new fans, who now LOVE snorkelling ❤️

Very highly recommended activity. It comes out of the typical kayaks, boat ... the bicycle is very curious and I had never seen it before, very original. In addition, much progress is made without effort. It will especially appeal to bike lovers. It allows you to enjoy a relaxing landscape, see the canals and reach the spit. You can make stops and take a dip. Perfect plan to put the icing on Noosa

The tour was amazing. We saw some whales on the Beach Drive and when we were on the Kayaks we saw dolphins and turtles. Vince is a really good and fun tour guide. He shares his knowledge of the Ocean life and we learned a lot from him. We really enjoyed the day and would recommend this tour at any time.

Even if the ocean had a big swell, i still enjoyed looking at all the different colored fish and lots of them too! Ruby, Jonny and Dave were exceptionals and passionnate at their jobs as guides and skipper.

Great time, lots of time in the water and great crew - felt safe and it was fun, they were very informative.
