Return Details

Returns to original departure point
With relatively calm, protected waters and an abundance of marine life, Cape Byron Marine Park is an ideal sea kayaking spot. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure. You’ll be outfitted with a paddle, safety vest and a two-person sea kayak designed for ease and stability. All levels of kayaking experience are welcome. 

Follow your knowledgeable surf-and-sea guides out into the marine park, learning about the area’s natural and cultural history as you paddle. Get a glimpse of the historic Cape Byron lighthouse, and hear local Aboriginal legends. Your guides will navigate the group toward the path of a local pod of more than 300 dolphins that are regularly seen swimming, splashing and jumping in the area. Get an amazingly up-close encounter with these smart and playful creatures in their natural habitat.

Keep an eye out for other marine life including sea turtles and migrating humpback whales (May to November). Disembark on a lovely local beach and refresh with morning or afternoon tea and coffee, served with Milo or Tim Tam chocolate biscuits. 

Please note: In the rare event that your group does not encounter any dolphins, you can take the tour again on another day free of charge.

Was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! We were so lucky to see about 80 dolphins so close to our kayaks. Prepare for some sore arms the next day though! So worth it.
