Most sea kayaks are designed to accommodate two people and all their gear. Most companies have a minimum age requirement of 13 years.
Sea Kayaking can be experienced around stunning Fitzroy Island with full day trips departing from Cairns, or alternatively travelling north up to Cape Tribulation overnight Sea Kayaking camping adventures to Snapper Island is a great experience.
At Hinchinbrook Island south of Cairns, 7-day trips take in 56 miles of tropical paradise. This island is a natural park featuring high granite peaks, long beautiful beaches and lush rainforest. Every night you rest at remote wilderness beaches in protected bays.
During the paddles you're likely to see dolphins, turtles, and coral reefs. If you like, you can tow a fishing line behind the kayak and snare yourself a fish lunch.
To make the most of a sea kayaking adventure you should be fit and healthy. Hours of kayaking, although beautiful and refreshing, can become strenuous for people who are not accustomed to exerting themselves physically. There are normally no more than 3-5 hours of paddling per day, and this is always broken up into easily managed segments. However, tides and windy conditions can make this a challenging enterprise. Therefore it is recommended that you do upper body exercise before embarking on the trip.
Sea kayaking is a lot of fun. It combines the tropical outdoors with confidence building self-reliance.
