  • Dolphin View Kayak and Great Beach Drive Tour from Noosa

    1. Dolphin View Kayak and Great Beach Drive Tour from Noosa

    Begin your 6-hour program with a Great Beach Drive in Great Sandy National Park. Head to Double Island Point for views of Fraser Island and the colored sands of Rainbow Beach. Head out on a kayaking tour around the headland and admire the beauty of your surroundings and the Double Island Point Lighthouse from a unique perspective. Bottlenose dolphin pods are often seen in the area, feeding on large schools of fish. They’re usually as curious about you as you are about them, so be prepared for an experience of a lifetime! In addition, see local and migrating wildlife, including humpback whales (June-November), turtles, manta rays, stingrays, and migrating sea birds.

    We had an amazing day! We were so lucky to see 5 whales and several pods of dolphins that were so close to us. Vince was a great tour guide/instructor, he’s so passionate about what he does. Thanks

Enjoy a leisurely river cruise along the Everglades with your group and make a pit stop at a nearby swimming hole made up of tea-tree infused waters. As your canoe time draws to a close, head back to Habitat Noosa w...

    Lovely boat ride to get to the Everglades. Then hopped on a kayak to go downriver. Lunch provided, lovely meal. Informative tour guide.

  • Self-Guided Noosa Everglades Kayak Trip

    3. Self-Guided Noosa Everglades Kayak Trip

    Head out to the Great Sandy National Park kayak launch site and you'll be settled into your kayak, shown the map, and taught all the basic skills you need for an enjoyable paddle across Lake Cootharaba to Kinaba. From there, you're free to explore where you want within the Noosa Everglades. Try the lesser-paddled waters of Kin Kin Creek or the mighty Noosa River. Weave in and out of the small islands that dot the northern reaches of Fig Tree Lake. Test your paddling stamina and head up to the iconic Harry’s Hut for a swim in the tea-colored waters, or use the kayak to get to a wilder bush walking track within the Cooloola Recreation Area. The possibilities are endless!

Amazing day out in the Everglades, taking in and admiring the nature! Canoeing on the river with enough time to enjoy everything without feeling rushed, excellent swim in the refreshing water and a tasty afternoon lunch to end the day! Even saw a few kangaroos after lunch and catfish in the water right next to where we were swimming! David and Mick made the day fun and enjoyable!

I had an amazing day out the weather was perfect the views were spectacular and the tour guid and skipper were very friendly and knowledgeable. The tea break was wonderful, we were able to swim also. The canoe ride was so relaxing and I highly recommended doing both the cruise and canoe. We ended the day with a beautiful roast dinner and live music

The tour was amazing. We saw some whales on the Beach Drive and when we were on the Kayaks we saw dolphins and turtles. Vince is a really good and fun tour guide. He shares his knowledge of the Ocean life and we learned a lot from him. We really enjoyed the day and would recommend this tour at any time.

It was a fantastic tour. We saw some dolphins and wales just in front of our kajak. An incredible moment. Thank you so much to our guide Vince.
