ITINERARY: After a 45 minute drive south from Perth to Shoalwater Marine Park (a beautiful bay with several limestone islands), we introduce people to each other and the equipment. We use easy to paddle double kayaks with waterproof compartments. Our first paddle is to Seal Island, a distance of approximately 1 kilometre, where we look at Australian Sea Lions. Under the conditions usually experienced (light easterly breeze) this section will take about 15 minutes. Next we paddle approximately 2 kilometres (about 30 minute paddle) to Penguin Island where we land for a guided nature walk before sitting down to enjoy an excellent picnic lunch. After this, people can fall asleep under a tree or in the sun, snorkel, swim, do some more kayaking, or go exploring the coast and caves of the island. We usually take people on a nature walk around the island to discover the many and varied shellfish, starfish, crabs, sea birds (including a Pelican Colony), lizards, dolphins and some great views of the bay. Around 2:30pm we muster for the return to Australia, often rafting the boats up and sailing back if the winds are right. This is a distance of approximately 2.5 kilometres. After packing the gear and changing into dry clothes (there is a toilet block at the start/finish point) we drive back to Perth, arriving approx 4.30pm.


We provide A healthy picnic lunch, Kayaks, Paddles, Life Jackets, professional guide, full face snorkel masks and transport from the city if preferred.
