A self-guided kayak tour is a great way to explore the beautiful Noosa River.

The river mouth estuary is one of Australia’s best kept secrets for exploring by kayak. Where else in the world can you paddle around pristine sandflat and mangrove environments just a few hundred metres from the hustle and bustle of the iconic destination like Noosa?

Discover for yourself the rhythm of wildlife in a tidal river haven. Navigate hidden mangrove corridors at high tide, and explore sandflats alive with soldier crabs and wading birds as the tide falls.

We will supply you with a map and we will point out river features and hazards to help keep you safe on your own adventures.

Our touring kayaks are fast and stable with steering and back rests.

As an Eco-Tourism certified company, we strongly promote preservation of this wonderful Noosa Biosphere through recreation and education.  We will also provide you with an information sheet on the wildlife you can expect to see on the river which will help you identify what you see from the various Birds of Prey to stingrays and soldier crabs.

The best time to paddle on the river and see more wildlife is early to mid-morning.  The wind does tend to increase after11.30am
