Full description
Depart from Gold Coast on a fun-filled guided kayaking tour to Wave Break Island South where you can snorkel, enjoy a snack, and relax while admiring amazing city views away from the crowds. Departing from the iconic Broadwater, where experienced and friendly tour guides will brief you on kayaking techniques, cruise through spectacular clear waters, where you might have the chance to spot dolphins and stingrays. Paddle through beautiful sandbanks, offering a unique Gold Coast City view in the background, and arrive at the Northern side of Wave Break Island, where you will park your kayaks next to a scenic spot. Take a short bushwalk to Wave Break Island’s Eastern side to snorkel and explore the underwater beauty of this pristine Island.  Swim amongst the friendly reef locals, the SeaPerch and Angelfish, and discover many other species, from sea cucumber, trumpet fish, sergeant fish, and if you are lucky you can even find Nemo. Here, natural and man-made beauty are combined to create a picture-perfect background; the beautiful Gold Coast waterways with the city’s collection of skyscrapers on the horizon. As you get out of the water, a snack will be waiting for you. Savor it whilst admiring the amazing views, and get ready to start your journey back to the launch point.

    Enjoyed the whole experience from kayaking to snorkelling! The guide was fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating! Unfortunately, the weather turned and we couldn’t see the marine life due to low visibility! Nonetheless, we still had a great time!
