About Sydney Harbour Kayaks

The Sydney Harbour Kayaks experience is more than just about going on a tour, buying or renting a kayak.

Our team is passionate about all paddle sports, passionate about being out on the water and living our dream, to take time - enjoy life.

Our passion is infectious. So when you're out on one of our tours kayaking into Middle Harbour, on a Rental or in our shop buying a kayak, we're here to guide, instruct and inspire you.


Sydney Harbour Kayaks has been renting & selling kayaks, teaching kayaking and guiding tours around Middle Harbour from the Spit Bridge since 1991.

We take great pride in making sure you have a wonderful paddling experience. Safety and customer satisfaction are of the highest concern for us.

Sydney Harbour Kayaks operate under guidelines from The Australian Maritime Safety Authority. We maintain a very strict Operations Manual, which is considered one of the best in the Hire Drive industry and is audited by NSW Maritime on a regular basis.

Our kayak, surf-ski & stand up paddle board rental fleets are some of the best around, we offer a mix of plastic and composite sea kayaks as well as surf-skis and SUPs . 


Our main rental location is at the Spit Bridge in Mosman and you can paddle throughout all of Middle Harbour. From September 2017, we will have a base in Cohuna Victoria that will service the Murray River and Gunbower Creek area. This Southern base will be known as Murray River Adventures and will conduct Eco Tours. Rentals and Lessons.


We take great pride in our kayaking tours and aim to offer the best possible experience.

Our backyards are the beautiful Middle Harbour and Gunbower Creek and we get no more enjoyment then showing it off to our many visitors. The kayak tours and team-building activities are a lot of fun and offer a wholesome day out on the water.

Lessons are our specialty and we teach from beginners through to a Professional level. If you are just learning about kayaking or stand up paddle boarding then you should try our Paddle Safe / Paddle Smart Program, which are FREE kayaking lessons.
