Escape by Sea Kayak to snorkel and visit giant sea turtle and dolphins in the Whitsundays.
This is without doubt our most popular guided trip, which can be appreciated by both experienced paddlers and beginners, with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment.
Departing from our base at Shute Harbour, we kayak over fringing coral reefs and explore nearby tropical islands.
These turquoise waters and islands are home to an amazing diversity of marine and bird-life including sea turtles and soaring eagles.
Between July and September, there is also a chance to encounter the magnificent humpback whales which arrive to give birth before returning to the Antarctic.
We stop off at White Rock, allowing time to swim, explore the island or kick back and relax. Cold drinks and a cheese and fruit platter are provided, allowing time to refresh before heading back to Shute Harbour.
NOTE: Guides occasionally need to reroute the trip, (if weather/sea conditions make it too difficult to get to White Rock). If possible, we head to Cane Cockies Beach.
The people at Salty Dog were great. They were friendly and made the experience enjoyable. Our first go at sea kayaking.
We had a fantastic time and the staff were friendly and very well organised.
Salty Dog were professional and fun to deal with. I would have no problems recommending or using them again.
Half day kayak tours depart daily.
Courtesy bus departs Airlie Beach 8:30am & return approx 1:00pm.
