Best time of year for Kayaking Tour

Wildlife

dolphin view sea kayaking  On our kayak tours we can already see the large schools of fish coming in as temperatures drop a little and large dolphin pods are happily chasing a feed and enjoying the quiet waters of Honeymoon Bay. Turtles rest close to the quiet shore line and have been a real highlight on our kayak tour in the clear shallows of Double Island Point. The drive along the beach from Noosa and Rainbow Beach on our day and half day kayak tours have been a thrill but are about to get a whole lot better with the migrating Humpback whales passing by. Some have already been spotted from a distance as the estimate this year is almost 35,000! We are super excited to be able to showcase the spectacular Double Island Point and Great Sandy National Park in all it’s glory and at the most peaceful, quiet and amazing time of year. If your after a truly unique kayak tour experience that is off the beaten track then jump on board our Epic Ocean Adventure this season departing Noosa and Rainbow Beach daily.

A 13km beach drive around the low tide will take you on an adventure featuring the famous coloured sand cliffs Rainbow Beach is well known for. The most spectacular being on the Double Island Point end of the cliffs where many different colours and shades are featured.

Thousands of soldier crabs march through the sands around a big lagoon on low tide and is both spectacular and fascinating to watch. Also living in the shallow waters of the  Double Island Point lagoon are many sting rays and turtles which are often seen on the drive past to the top of the point.

Last weekend saw 50+ Gurkhas from Nepal come and spend 3 solid sessions with us learning to surf, stand up paddle and kayak with dolphins at the spectacular Double Island Point. The Gurkhas are currently in Australia as part of the British Army training with the Australian army at the camp Kerr base just outside of Rainbow Beach.

 

 

 

We had perfect weather at Double Island Point, some nice swell to learn to surf and stand up paddle and a great group! We would like to thank them for an Epic 3 days. We look forward to the even bigger group next month.
A number of local business owners were very please with the extra business over the Anzac weekend that was created from these guys staying in Rainbow Beach.
