Departing from the south end of the stunning Palm Cove, kayak to the beautiful Double Island. Paddle along side coral reef and cross beautiful white sandy shallow waters rich with marine life.
The most exciting way to explore the Great Barrier Reef is to get out on the water and up close to the marine world beneath the surface. And the best way to do that is kayaking.
Your experience begins in a picturesque spot at the south end of Palm Cove, where your friendly guides will get you ready for your paddling session. Then set out from the pristine sandy shores and leave the palm trees behind you as you begin your kayak to Double Island. It’s about a 20-30 minute paddle to Double Island through crystal clear water, so you can check out the bustling marine life below you as you go.
Once you arrive at Double Island you’ll have plenty of time to explore the reef, enjoy the colourful marine world and get up close and personal with tropical species like eagle rays, shovelnose sharks, mangrove rays, colourful fish and sea turtles. With a paddle in your hands and aquatic life under your kayak, it’s a completely exhilarating way to experience the Great Barrier Reef. You’re in control, so go wherever you like.
Soak up the feeling of gliding across the water as you finish up your kayaking tour with a paddle back to Palm Cove. This is the perfect opportunity to get active and get an unforgettable reef experience.
