Return Details

Returns to original departure point
With relatively calm, protected waters and an abundance of marine life, Cape Byron Marine Park is an ideal sea kayaking spot. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure. You’ll be outfitted with a paddle, safety vest and a two-person sea kayak designed for ease and stability. All levels of kayaking experience are welcome. 

Follow your knowledgeable surf-and-sea guides out into the marine park, learning about the area’s natural and cultural history as you paddle. Get a glimpse of the historic Cape Byron lighthouse, and hear local Aboriginal legends. Your guides will navigate the group toward the path of a local pod of more than 300 dolphins that are regularly seen swimming, splashing and jumping in the area. Get an amazingly up-close encounter with these smart and playful creatures in their natural habitat.

Keep an eye out for other marine life including sea turtles and migrating humpback whales (May to November). Disembark on a lovely local beach and refresh with morning or afternoon tea and coffee, served with Milo or Tim Tam chocolate biscuits. 

Please note: In the rare event that your group does not encounter any dolphins, you can take the tour again on another day free of charge.

Was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! We were so lucky to see about 80 dolphins so close to our kayaks. Prepare for some sore arms the next day though! So worth it.

The guides were great and we saw some turtles, but only saw dolphins for a short period in the distance, so we were offered a free return which was really good.

We had a great experience! But need to mention that the website we booked on said adult tickets were from 12 years of age. When we arrived we were told 16 years of age was an adult.

Hi. We are so pleased everybody had a great experience out kayaking. Just to clarify Children aged 12 and above pay the adult prices though we still need an adult accompany anyone 16 years or younger. Kind regards. Steve

We went out on an overcast raining and windy day and had the best morning ever! Alice! What a legend, love her energy and especially her jokes. Got everyone excited for the morning. Our Kayaking instructors Mikey and Shiloh were great. Shiloh had fantastic knowledge, made everyone feel safe and the dolphins put on an amazing show for us all. Even got to Kayak surf on a couple of waves. THANK YOU!

The instructions were very clear esp to those who were doing it for the first . It was really funny and enjoyable. The only thing which i didn't like is there were no pics of that day even on day 2 afterwards but they had said the pics would be there in 30min
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Hi Lucy I'm pleased you enjoyed your tour with us. Sorry about the delay for the pics... sometimes guides don't realise the dramas office staff have with the camera! Unfortunately salt water and electronics don't mix very well and can lead to issues. We aim to get the pics from the tour up as soon as possible. I hope you got them in the end! cheers Alice
