Kayak Turtle Tour from Palm Cove

Come back here TO BOOK !

Experience the Inner Great Barrier Reef By Kayak (only 20min paddle to the edge of the reef).

Prepared to live a lifetime experience? Go on our Tour of Kayak Turtles. We’re open to tours every day. We’ll paddle out to Double Island from the south end of Palm Cove. It’s an amazing feeling once we’ve been there. Mangroves can be explored, coral reefs can be paddled over and a cave can be explored when conditions are correct.

The water is crystal clear more often than not. There’s plenty of small rays and turtles swimming through the water and a dolphin, dugong or pod of whales can even be seen on the walk, but you must be extremely lucky.

Our tours normally runs from 3.5 – 4 hours. First we paddle over to Double Island. this usually takes about 20 minutes. Once we get there, it is time to explore the reef. More often than not we see lots of different marine life like:

  • Eagle rays
  • Shovel nose sharks
  • Mangrove rays
  • Colourful fish
  • Sea Turtles
