Private Guided Kayaking Tours

Fully Customised Paddling Experiences

With over 28 years of experience conducting kayaking tours around Sydney Harbour and Middle Harbour, we are the experts in managing kayaking tours that are fully customised.


We manage a wonderful team of international Professional Paddlers and there has never been a request involving kayaks that we couldn't safely manage.

We can provide amazing on-water experiences from intimate groups of two people through to finely orchestrated programs for groups of 30-60 paddlers. 


It doesn't matter whether you only have a couple of hours to spare, or wish to be out all day, Sydney Harbour Kayaks' expert team are your strong on-water partners.

Sydney Harbour Kayaks operate under guidelines from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (Certificate of Operation Holder).

We maintain a very detailed Operations Manual, which is considered one of the best in the Paddle Sports Industry and is audited by NSW Maritime on a regular basis. By holding a high status within the industry, we are one of the only Kayaking Operations with approval to conduct tours across the entire Sydney Harbour.

We have a large kayak trailer to enable us to access any launch spot. We can have an inflatable boat (RHIB) for filming or added safety and we can manage up to 60 / 70 paddlers at one time. We also have a large team of Professional Paddlers with top level qualifications.
