What you'll do
Meeting on the white sands of Dolls Point Beach, participants will be given a short safety briefing, before being set up in a pair of state-of-the-art Epic V8 Double kayaks, and provided with lightweight paddles, safety tethers and life jackets. Heading east across to the Towra Wetlands where we'll explain the history of the local indigenous people who hunted and gathered food here for millennia, and also delve into the lives of the rare and endangered birdlife who travel from halfway around the world to nest here. Considering we're less than 30 minutes from the centre of Sydney, you might as well be on a tropical island! Its an ideal spot for a swim or a snorkel, after which we'll amble back to base, some 40 minutes of easy paddling.
I'm a qualified Australian Sea Instructor, with 20 years paddling and guiding in and around Sydney and it's environs. Along with my business partner Rob Mercer, we are two of Australia's best known kayakers and coaches. We have a lifetime of stories & tales of our time on the sea that we love to share with or customers on the Botany Bay Paddle. We have a flawless safety record, and over the years the word has spread about the adventurous, yet safe and inclusive nature of our paddles.We know the Botany Bay shoreline area intimately, and would love the opportunity to show off this spectacular and historic part of Sydney to locals and visitors alike.
Snacks for paddlers burning energy on the water, bananas, drinks & chocolate!
