Sydney Harbour Kayaks
Special Early-Morning Guided Kayaking Tours - 'The Sunrisers'
- 1 to 6 People Only -
Sydney Harbour Kayaks offers TWO early morning guided kayaking tours or 'Sunrisers'
How about starting your day on an early morning sea kayak paddle with one of the Professional Team from Sydney Harbour Kayaks?
During our 28 years on Sydney Harbour, we know all the top spots to visit.
We can explore many different locations depending on the conditions and we will do it in style by using beautiful Australian made lightweight sea kayaks (made by Mirage Sea Kayaks).
Depending on your level of experience and the group size, we have single or double kayaks available. We will make sure to bring some freshly brewed coffee if we need a stop along the way.
We can depart from several beautiful beaches (depending on the tour you are taking).
We can explore Middle Harbour and look out towards the Heads or the greater Sydney Harbour area.
Maybe a tour, paddling past the Opera House and then under the Sydney Harbour Bridge is what you are looking for, or cruise past the Governor General's house.
On our paddle, it is more enjoyable that we cruise at a leisurely pace, therefore you will only need a moderate level of fitness.
You will need to be at least an intermediate or experienced kayaker.

Sydney's Main Harbour is a very busy, working Harbour and there are many large vessels.
This very special tour is conducted in stable ocean going sea kayaks, guided by experienced guides. The Main Harbour can become very rough with lots of ferry wash / wake.
If the weather isn't ideal, then we may not be able to paddle under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
We will make sure we get close, however our guiding policy is always safety first and the tour will still be a great experience.
Generally, Middle Harbour is a calmer place to paddle, therefore if you are a little worried then please book into the 'Middle Harbour Sunriser'
The minimum cost for these special intimate Private Tour is $310.00 during the week days and $620.00 on the weekends.
