Sydney Harbour Kayaks - Unique Guided Experiences with the SHK experts.

Get on to the water before work with the boss.


How about starting your day on an early morning sea kayak paddle with me?

I'm the owner of a kayaking center on Middle Harbour and over the past ten years, I know 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 Aussie made lightweight sea kayaks.

Depending on your level of experience and the group size, we have single or double kayaks available. I will make sure to bring some freshly ground coffee if we need a stop along the way.

We depart from our shop at the Spit Bridge and return to the same spot.

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.

​Tours are run every Wednesday and Thursday (and some Tuesdays)

Lets be on the beach at 7am and paddle till 9am - $125.00 per paddler.

- Safety talk and brief instruction.

- Paddle in deluxe hand-made sea kayaks by Mirage Sea Kayaks.
- Delicious hot coffee, when we return.
- Paddle with the owner of Sydney Harbour Kayaks and Mirage Sea Kayaks; Shannon O'Brien.


We have a changing room with toilet and shower facilities.


You must wear closed-in shoes that can get wet as there are oyster shells on the beaches we stop at. Please DO NOT wear thongs / flip-flops as they offer limited protection.
