Salty Dog Sea Kayaking – Full Day Tropical Island Kayak & Snorkel Adventure
Enjoy a great day's sea kayaking in the Whitsundays with an experienced guide and a small group of paddlers. Take the opportunity to snorkel over fringing coral reefs, or Trek part of the Mount Jeffries walking track with panoramic views across Whitsunday Island, Hamilton Island and the vast Conway State Forest plus equally stunning aerial views down into Sandy Bay and Shute Harbour.
Kayaking directly from the waterfront base at Shute Harbour we wind our way through the inner harbour islands before crossing over to nearby White Rock. Time is spent here snorkelling & swimming before the group paddles across the Molle Passage to Sandy Bay at South Molle Island.
The waters off the Molle Group of Islands are home to giant sea turtles, dolphins, soaring sea eagles and a myriad of colourful tropical fish. You may even be lucky enough to spot migrating Humpback whales if you are here between July and September.
At South Molle kick back and relax on the beach or take another opportunity to snorkel over fringing coral reefs.
For the more energetic people, there is time to trek part of the Mount Jeffries walking track, lined with ancient "grass trees" which attract many varieties of butterflies. The walk boasts panoramic views across Whitsunday Island, Hamilton Island and the vast Conway State Forest plus equally stunning aerial views down into Sandy Bay and Shute Harbour. A delicious beach-based buffet lunch is provided before kayaking back to base in the afternoon.
