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.

    The guides were very informative and made sure that anyone's doubts were cleared. This activity is ideal for anyone with beginner or little experience in the water, as it was explained step by step before commencing. On the morning that we went, there was low tide, and this affected the visibility for snorkelling. So for snorkelling, a high tide will be better. Overall, it was great weather and great views and a very good experience.

    Our tour guide Glen was very friendly! The views were amazing both in the kayak and the water! Although the water wasn’t that clear it cannot be helped! You can’t do all of gods works! Fantastic experience & I would recommend again. The kayak ain’t wasn’t as hard as I thought either. Thankful for your team and your services! Thanks again!

    I went with my 12yr old daughter, we weren’t very fit or overly experienced with kayaking or snorkeling. We found the activity was very enjoyable. The guide was very friendly and helpful.
