Sydney: Kayak to Goat Island At The Heart of Sydney Harbour

1. Sydney: Kayak to Goat Island At The Heart of Sydney Harbour

Head out on a morning sea kayak adventure on Sydney's beautiful harbor. Paddle to the centre of the harbor to take photos by Sydney Harbor Bridge, before exploring Goat Island on foot with your expert guide. Escape the noise of the city, and simply enjoy the sound of your paddle in the water and the sea birds squawking above as you paddle in the harbor. Get up close and personal to both the built environs and natural wonders of the harbor, including its marine inhabitants. After reaching the center of the harbor, pose with Sydney Harbour Bridge for your guide to take high-quality shots of you. Then, land in a secret cove on Goat Island (Memel in the local Aboriginal language), and explore the area on foot. Make the most of this experience: Goat Island is closed to the public and landing is by special permit only, included in your tour. Paddle back via Darling Harbour, and take a hot shower, if you like. Take advantage of the end-point's proximity to the famous Sydney Fish Markets, and refuel with a great lunch.

Paddling with Matt was definitely the highlight of my Sydney visit! So much fun and such a great way to see the harbour, the goat island, the harbour bridge and the opera house! Matt is really knowledgeable and told me a lot about the history of the harbour. Definitely worth it and I would recommend it to everyone! I hope I can come back one day. Thank you Matt for this amazing day!

Highlight of my time in Sydney. Kayaking is a great way to see the Harbour and get amazing views (and quality pics) of the bridge. Matt is really interesting and a cool to be on a paddle with. Great trip will definitely go again when I'm next in Sydney.

Matt was so nice!! And so cool! Taught us tips about the kayaks, and some history and showed us some AMAZING view. 10/10 would kayak again!
